The Blue Jackets lost the hockey game tonight.
After Max Domi opened the scoring, Teuvo Teravainen tied things up late in the first period. Then, in overtime, Dougie Hamilton beat Elvis Merzlikins to give the Hurricanes the extra point.
However, the Blue Jackets certainly notched a major victory with their uniform. For the first time in franchise history, the team wore their white away jerseys with their home navy pants. The results were absolutely spectacular.
The white jersey combined with the navy pants creates a stunning visual, especially when you factor in the red trim. There's a U.S.A. theme going there, for sure. In a season where so many things have gone wrong for the Blue Jackets, it's nice to finally see something go their way, even if it doesn't actually affect their on-ice performance.
Unfortunately, tonight's contest against Carolina was the Blue Jackets' final road game of the campaign. If the Blue Jackets decide to rock this combo again, we'll have to wait until next year to see it, which is truly a shame.
Most importantly, the Blue Jackets have gotten at least one point in 100% of games when they've worn this uniform combination. That's grounds for bringing it back next season.
