The first three periods were all Blue Jackets but it didn't yield any goals.

It was a classic slow start. A problem that has plagued them for the better part of a month. It was no different when they were facing off against the red-hot Calgary Flames.

The first period wasn't anything to write home about as both sides were feeling one another out and trying to find their footing. The second period was a completely different story.

FLAMES 0 0 0 0 0

In the second period, the Blue Jackets had two power plays, neither of which they were able to convert upon. At even strength, it looked like the Blue Jackets were on the man advantage at times. They were constantly buzzing around the net. They led the Flames in shots that period with a 12-3 advantage.

The third period started off with more of the same and then a little more than seven minutes left the Blue Jackets had their best chance of the night with Josh Anderson getting two chances right on the doorstep. The three periods wouldn't be enough for the Blue Jackets as they went to overtime.

Redemption would soon be Anderson's as he received a pass from Nick Foligno after a TJ Brodie turnover during 3-on-3 and Anderson put it home in the top right corner winning it in overtime.

Injury Update

Both Alexander Wennberg and Matt Calvert skated in full gear and are suffering upper-body injuries.

Next Up

The Blue Jackets play next this upcoming Friday right after Thanksgiving against the Ottawa Senators. They then will head back to Montreal next Monday and face off against the Canadiens.
