Columbus Blue Jackets: 3 Reasons Why They Lost To The Capitals

NHL Playoffs 2018: Capitals vs. Penguins schedule, odds, predictions and series breakdown

This time it was Washington who handed out overtime pain as they won the match 3-2 to get themselves back in the series.

"Ovi" scored both of his goals in the second period of the Capitals' 6-3 Game 6 win in the first round of Eastern Conference play Monday at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio. There are bright spots for Columbus' young team but also questions heading into the offseason.

In Columbus Monday night, the Washington Capitals were victorious against the Columbus Blue Jackets, 6-3. Obviously, watching the Blue Jackets lose four straight games and the series hurt fans, but one fan verbalized his frustrations in NSFW comments that were picked up by CNBC mics. "It's going to be a huge series for us".

Long story short: The Blue Jackets did themselves a major disservice by allowing the Capitals as many opportunities as they did on the man-advantage, while also not capitalizing on their own chances enough. Come playoff time that is when those players show up.

They got the better looks, but we also shouldn't look past the puck luck. That goes right on through the team. Rod Brind'Amour says he would be interested in coaching the team.

It's the hurdle a Capitals team has never been able to get over.

There are reasons to be optimistic about the future of this young team.

Washington Capitals left wing Alex Ovechkin (8), from Russian Federation, talks with Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby (87) after Game 7 in an NHL hockey Stanley Cup Eastern Conference semifinal, Wednesday, May 10, 2017, in Washington. The Capitals didn't play like a team struggling under the fear of losing. The only bottom six forward that had a halfway decent series for the Jackets was that of Matt Calvert.

What happened in the first round against Columbus is what we've come to expect from Holtby. The Jackets are not in the playoffs without Bobrovsky, but they needed him to have his best game and he didn't. His 11 blocked shots were tied with his partner, Brian Dumoulin, for second, and he was third with seven points (one goals, six assists) in six games.

Players like Alexander Wennberg, who spent most of the series injured, Thomas Vanek and the bottom six guys went missing. The Capitals lacked a serious threat outside of their top four forwards this season. But then they went silent, and it was a problem.

The first-line defensive duo of Zach Werenski and Seth Jones again was one of the best in the National Hockey League. Werenski is just 20, and Jones is 23.

After losing in the first round of each of four playoffs in its 17-season history, Columbus remains the only now existing National Hockey League franchise to never have won a playoff series.

Foligno got the Blue Jackets to 5-3 at 8:22 in the third, but Columbus couldn't get closer.

Another elite sniper to complement Panarin?

It was the same for Atkinson, whose 24 goals were second only to Panarin's 27 in the regular season. Grubauer was rattled in the opener and couldn't find his game by the second contest of the series, posting an ugly.837 save percentage -.109 worse than his expected SP, per Corsica.
