Oilers Vs. Blue Jackets Final: Mason Pulled In 6-3 Columbus Loss

During a highly-entertaining game that featured nine goals, the Columbus Blue Jackets watched as the visiting Edmonton Oilers swept in to steal a 6-3 victory on Sunday afternoon. The Blue Jackets, behind a first period goal from Mark Letestu, were the first team to lay claim to the scoring column, and actually owned a 2-1 lead near the midpoint of the game.

But consistent defense and goaltending proved to be serious red flags for the Blue Jackets as the game pressed on, as Columbus goalie Steve Mason struggled to ward off shots sent his way. Mason was, not surprisingly, pulled after just 39 minutes after yielding five goals on 26 shots, all of which came in the second period.

Left winger Ryan Jones led the way in the scoring column for the Oilers with three points, while forward Rick Nash chipped in a goal and an assist for Columbus.
