Jackets 1, Coyotes 4

The slump continues…Jackets no longer undefeated on home ice.

Jason LaBarbera played strong in the net for Phoenix, and the ‘Yotes played good team defense. The Jackets couldn’t figure out how to solve that, and Steve Mason looked pretty ordinary in net again. The result was an ugly 4-1 loss.

The Jackets are now back in ninth place in the conference, just outside the playoffs. It’s still early, but they need to get it sorted out soon, or the playoffs will slip further and further away, until they can’t make up the ground.

It gets no easier tomorrow, with the red-hot Penguins in town. Should be a large crowd; hopefully the Jackets put on a good showing for them.
