Columbus Blue Jackets

The Blue Jackets running in the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs came to an end on Monday evening with a 3-0 loss to the Boston Bruins. Captain Nick Foligno: “It’s just disappointing. I thought we played really well tonight, just didn’t get a result. It’s frustrating for a game where I really thought — I wasn’t planning on sitting here talking to you guys about this. I don’t really have much to go on tonight. One of those games. We had our chances, just didn’t bury.” Although the outcome is not quite what the 5th line was hoping for, the fans showed amazing support cheering on the Columbus Blue Jackets to the very end. Teammates including Bobrovsky honored the crowd with a post-game solute. There is no doubt that the Arena District has seen some incredible energy in the last couple months. Take a look back at some photos from pre-game plaza parties this season:
