COLUMBUS -- The fast-closing Columbus Blue Jackets just missed the Stanley Cup playoffs despite a 19-5-5 record to end the regular season including a 3-1 win over rival Nashville in the season finale Saturday night.
CBJ General Manager Jarmo Kekalainen explains that close is not good enough for the franchise that calls Nationwide Arena home.
The Blue Jackets were one point short of reaching the 8th and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
