8: Max Pacioretty, Dec. 17 vs. Columbus Blue Jackets (injury) a game in the third period. You’ve got to find a way to shut it down,” defenseman Nate Schmidt said. “Maybe you’re not feeling the best or whatever it may be, but you have to find a way to do something in that third period.”
The Knights have their first three-game home losing streak of the season after falling to the Blue Jackets on Saturday. The longest home losing streak in their two-year history is four games (Feb. 27-March 16).
The Knights (66 points) know they need to avoid equaling that mark and take advantage of a remaining schedule that includes 15 home games and 10 road games to catch the Calgary Flames (74) and San Jose Sharks (73) in the Pacific Division.
“We’ve got to do a better job to get some wins in here,” defenseman Jon Merrill said.
