By The Numbers: Devils vs. Blue Jackets

Welcome to the newest post-game series on BlueJackets.com: By The Numbers. Here, we'll break down the most important facts, figures and statistics from that night's game. Despite the final score, there's more to the game's story than the numbers on the scoreboard.
