The Columbus Blue Jackets outshot the Toronto Maple Leafs 39-to-18, but couldn't get more than a measly one goal past Leafs' goaltender Ben Scrivens, who was outstanding. Meanwhile, the Maple Leafs were able to get pucks by Jackets' netminder Steve Mason with far too much ease.

In fact, Mason was pulled after just 25 minutes when he gave up his 4th goal of the game on the 11th shot he faced. His replacement Allen York only faced seven shots in the final 35 minutes, but saved all of them. 

The Jackets actually outscored the Maple Leafs 1-0 after Mason was pulled, thanks to a Ryan Johansen goal in around the 11-minute mark of the second period. Both teams went scoreless in the third period, despite a 14-to-4 shot advantage in the period for the Jackets. 

The loss drops the Jackets to 2-10-1 on the season. They play again on Saturday in Philadelphia against the Flyers
