They allowed the Coyotes to put up five goals on the way to a a shutout defeat.
Columbus Blue Jackets
On the other side of this match up is the Columbus Blue Jackets who are also having a really nice season, and most has to do with their defense.

They really try to lock down the team in the defensive zone, and use that to lead to offensive scoring chances.
