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' 2-0 victory over the Coyotes in Phoneix:

1 - Time that the Coyotes have been shut out this season--tonight by the Blue Jackets.
