By The Numbers: Blue Jackets at Avalanche
Statistical analysis for the Dec. 31 game between the Columbus Blue Jackets and Colorado Avalanche.


Welcome to 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 notable statistics and numbers from the Blue Jackets' 5-3 loss to the Colorado Avalanche in Denver:


3:01 - The average time it took the Avalanche to respond to the two Blue Jackets leads in the first (2:22) and second periods (3:40) to retie the game each time.

6 - Power play goals given up by the Blue Jackets on nine chances in the last two games, which adds up to a 33.3 penalty kill percentage in those two contests.

7 - Shifts played by Blue Jackets forward Jack Skille tonight. He left in the second period due to an upper-body injury but played 4:25, registered a hit and recorded a shot on goal.

12 - Combined shots on goal by six Blue Jackets defensemen tonight.

30 - Faceoffs won by the Blue Jackets, who only won 46 percent during the game.

35 - Saves made by winning Avalanche goaltender Varlamov. 

37 - Seconds was all it took for Nick Foligno to erase the Avalanche's two-goal lead with a goal of his own to make it a 4-3 game.

91 - Combined hits for the Blue Jackets in the past two games. They set a season high on Sunday with 50 total and registered 41 hits tonight.

128 - Combined shot attempts for the Blue Jackets in the last two games, including a combined 66 shots on goal, 33 shots blocked by the opposition and 29 shots that completely missed the mark in that span.
