April 2, 2008 - United States Hockey League (USHL) - Ohio Junior Blue Jackets News Release

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.
