The Edmonton Oilers’ winning streak ended at six games with a 3-2 overtime loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets Wednesday night at Rogers Place.
Kent Johnson scored the winner with 2:31 left in overtime. He had the gold medal-winning goal in overtime for Canada at the World Juniors at Rogers Place in August.
Oilers head coach Jay Woodcroft didn’t have a pessimistic view of the game.
“I saw a lot of bobbled pucks, stick to skate passing, not as crisp as we had been. But saying that, we found ourselves having a 2-1 lead heading into the third period,” Woodcroft said.
The Oilers had the better chances in the first but the Blue Jackets scored the period’s only goal. Boone Jenner tipped a point shot past Stuart Skinner for his fourteenth.
