Columbus Blue Jackets’ winless skid hits eight – The Columbus Dispatch

WASHINGTON — Pascal Vincent is tired of watching his Blue Jackets find ways to lose close games.

After it happened again in a 4-3 loss to the Washington Capitals on Saturday night at Capital One Arena, his frustrations finally boiled over. Despite Johnny Gaudreau scoring the game’s first goal in his 700th NHL appearance and Boone Jenner assisting on it in his 675th game as a Blue Jacket ― most in franchise history ― the result was an eighth straight winless game.

“It’s getting old, you know?” Vincent said. “Like, it’s getting old. We shoot ourselves in the foot. We do so many good things, and I’m repeating myself. Just play the same tape as the last game. We do a lot of good things, where we’re playing the right way. Yeah, we make mistakes, like the other team makes mistakes, as well, but then we make mistakes at the wrong time and it’s costing us games, costing us points. So, it’s getting old.”
