The Columbus Blue Jackets are experiencing a power outage and crews are on the scene trying to fix the problem. In a 2-0 loss at home on Thursday to the Tampa Bay Lightning that ended a four-game winning streak, the crew failed miserably on the power play, going 0 of 3 and generating next to no shots on two of them. "We weren't good," Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella said Friday.
The expansion Vegas Golden Knights have been the feel-good story of the first two weeks of the NHL, winning five games and trailing the first-place Los Angeles Kings by just one point in the Pacific Division standings. Now comes a real litmus test for Gerard Gallant's squad, which hosts the Central Division-leading St. Louis (6-2-0) on Saturday night at T-Mobile Arena. Three nights later, the Chicago Blackhawks (4-2-2) pay a visit.
