Three takeaways from the Blue Jackets 2-0 loss to the Devils

One: Both teams had a slow pace to the first period, with the Blue Jackets putting up nine shots on goal before the Devils registered their first with five minutes left. Wennberg looked poised throughout period as he continues to come into his own as a player. Early start may have thrown teams off their routine, perhaps. Two: The slow pace, also known as "typical Devils hockey",...

The tendency of teams on the outside looking in on a playoff spot is to fall into either a cliche-laden non-answer or to pull inside a shell and not even acknowledge the negatives, while espousing the positives. It has become a daily ritual of saying the next game is the most important game that they...
