By The Numbers: Blue Jackets 3, Panthers 1
Panthers By The Numbers takes a closer look at some of the
interesting stats that you may or may have not known about.

Blue Jackets 3, Panthers 1

863 – Interesting way to start out, no? The 843 is the number of seconds it took the Panthers to register their first shot on goal. Cory Stillman wristed a shot on Steve Mason from in-between the face-off circles 14:23 into the first period. By then, the Blue Jackets had nine shots on Tomas Vokoun.

62 – What a way to score his first goal in the last 62 games played for the Cats. Falling to the ice in the crease, Rostislav Olesz slammed home Nick Tarnasky’s first and second attempts for his third goal of the season with 4:29 left in the opening period. Missing 43 of those 62 games due to a groin and abdominal injury, Olesz last scored on November 1st against Nashville.

100 – The Panthers were exceptional in the face-off circle in the first period, winning 65% of the draws (11 of 17). Leading the way for the Cats was Stephen Weiss who was perfect on his draws (4 of 4). Gregory Campbell won 75% of his draws (3 of 4).

9 – Florida was consistent in the first two periods in the hits category, racking up nine hits in each period. David Booth and Tarnasky had two hits in the first period to lead the team while Gregory Campbell had four of the Panthers nine hits in the second.

166 – The Panthers were just 166 seconds from recording a shutout and the victory. That all changed with one shot. Raffi Torres’ blast tied the game with 2:46 left in the contest for his ninth of the season.

2 – Buzzing from their last goal, Michael Peca intercepted Bryan McCabe’s clearing pass and fed it to Torres for his second of the night on the Blue Jackets very next shot just 1:13 later.

8 – Not a good stat for the Panthers top line. Weiss (-2), Booth (-3) and Richard Zednik (-3) combined to go -8 in the game. McCabe also finished tied for a team worse -3 on the game. The team finished a -11 altogether.                       

1 – A good night for the Panthers skaters in one regard as they only took one penalty on the night. That belonged to Olesz as he was sent to the box for tripping, coming 6:05 into the opening period. Columbus was whistled for three penalties on the night. Neither team was able to score on the power play.

69 – With Antoine Vermette recording his 5th in the last 7 games on an empty net, Columbus recorded three goals in the third period. Those goals help boosted the Blue Jackets third period scoring to 79 on the season, the most of the three periods for them. For Florida, the three goals give the Panthers opponents 69, the most of any period as well.                    `
