COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Ohio Junior Blue Jackets lost their fifth straight game Sunday night, this time a 4-1 set back against the Sioux Falls Stampede at Nationwide Arena. Ohio goaltender Troy Redmann made 56 saves on 60 Stampede shots.
The Junior Blue Jackets were out shot 21 to three in the first period, but behind numerous great saves by Redmann, went into the first intermission in a scoreless tie. The three shots on goal was a season low for Ohio, while the 21 shots by Sioux Falls was the most given up in one period this season by the Junior Blue Jackets.
