Junior Jackets Rally Falls Short in 4-3 Loss To Ice
Columbus, OHIO - The Ohio Junior Blue Jackets fell to the Indiana Ice 4-3 Wednesday night at the Dispatch Ice Haus.
Indiana (37-15-6, 80 pts.) scored the first three goals to take a 3-0 lead after forwards Greg Squires and Jake Skjodt tallied in the first and Paul Carey added another in the second period. Ohio (25-27-6, 56 pts.) forward Tim Hall put the Jackets on the board with a power-play tally on assists by Dan Hobbs and Steven Spinell to make it 3-1 into second intermission.
Ohio forward Daniel Barczuk cut the deficit to 3-2 just 1:37 into the third period on assists by Derek Roehl and Matt Stewart. Squires notched his second goal of the game at 10:29 before Spinell cut the lead to one again on a nifty move with under two minutes remaining. The comeback fell short, however, as Indiana goaltender Scott Darling shut the door in the final minute.
Ohio finished the contest 1-for-6 on the power play as Indiana went 2-for-4. Ohio goaltender Corson Cramer made 22 saves on 26 shots, as Darling stopped 38 of 41 shots.
The Junior Blue Jackets have two games remaining. They will conclude their 2007-08 season with games in Chicago and Indiana Friday and Saturday night, respectively. Both games are set for 7:30 p.m.
