Nick Foligno (71) ties the score at 1 in the first period of the Blue Jackets' game against the Red Wings in Nationwide Arena.
The goals were scored so closely together in the third period last night — Boone Jenner, then Brandon Dubinsky 40 seconds later — it became hard to discern when Blue Jackets’ fans at Nationwide Arena stopped bellowing “Boooooone” and began serenading “Duuuuuuube.”
Aaron Craft’s hustle helped Ohio State win its regular-season finale, but turnovers and missed free throws remain a concern for the Buckeyes on the offensive end.

Kenny Guiton will work out for the New England Patriots on March 26. “I just want a shot,” he said after Ohio State's pro day.

The Gregg Berhalter era could not have gotten off to a better start. Opening on the road against an also-rebuilt D.C. United, the Crew got an early goal from Jairo Arrieta and two more from Federico Higuain and suffocated the United attack in a decisive 3-0 victory.
Ohio State coach Tom Ryan said a loss to Penn State’s Zain Retherford brought Logan Stieber “to a new level of focus.”

His Ohio State teammate, Nick Heflin, wanted to win simply because it was his final chance for a Big Ten title. The senior accomplished his goal, too, and in dramatic fashion.
