By The Numbers: Blue Jackets at Pittsburgh

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.

Here's a look at some of the most interesting and notable statistics and numbers in the Blue Jackets' loss to the Pitttsburgh Penguins at CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Pa.:

.949 - Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury's save percentage tonight. He stopped 37 of 39 shots on goal tonight and was the best player on the ice.

3 -
Goals scored on four shots by the Penguins. It took them just 4:24 to take the four goal lead in the second period.

10 - Wins for Marc-Andre Fleury on the season, who currently leads the NHL in that column.

15 -
