The Blue Jackets are defending their home turf against the Pittsburgh Penguins. These Penguins have been on a roll, besting the Blue Jackets by significant margins in both playoff games. This Pittsburgh team only seems to be getting better, as they defeated Columbus 3-1 on Wednesday, and then 4-1 on Friday.
You’d think the Blue Jackets would be feeling, well, pretty damn blue. But that’s not the mood at all in the Jackets locker-room. The team from Columbus appear optimistic in their third playoff game against Pittsburgh. Blue Jackets Captain Nick Foligno told NHL.com, “I can say it was probably the weirdest ride home, only that we’re down 2-0 and obviously not really enjoying the situation we’re in, but the optimism in our room is incredible and how we feel about our game.”
Foligno continued to promote a positive outlook, as he added, “That’s the feeling in the room. We’re not down. We’re excited coming home. We’re going to have our fans behind us. It’s amazing what that can do for a club.”
The Blue Jackets have defeated the Penguins twice in the Nationwide Arena this year. But these aren’t the same Jackets who started 2017 with a 16-game winning streak. Now, they find themselves on the losing end in their series against the Penguins. But hey, at least they’re remaining positive.
