    Capitals blow 3-goal lead, lose to Blue Jackets in overtime

    Boone Jenner tied it with 46.9 seconds left in the third period, Jack Roslovic scored the overtime winner for his second goal of the game and the NHL-worst Columbus Blue Jackets rallied to beat the Washington Capitals 7-6 on Tuesday night. The Blue Jackets ended a three-game losing streak and dealt Washington another blow in its longshot bid to make the playoffs. The Capitals sit five points back of the second and final Eastern Conference wild-card spot with 10 games left to play.

    Game 70 Recap: The Blue Jackets win a game that they absolutely should not have. YOLO!

    After finishing off their West Coast swing, the Jackets got a bonus game on the road trip as they visited their division rivals in Washington. With the Sharks getting a loser point last night, and the Capitals in a desperate playoff push, Columbus has the wiggle room to play spoiler. To start the game, Tom Wilson absolutely trucked Daniil Tarasov, which the refs promptly ignored, before Nick Blankenburg had to pull a trickler off the goal line to keep it scoreless. It was rendered moot shortly after, with Alex Ovechkin burying his 40th goal of the season just a hair over five minutes in.
