The Columbus Blue Jackets were officially eliminated from the playoff race with their overtime loss to the Washington Capitals in the nation’s capital.

Winger Tomas Kubalik of Columbus, recalled from the minor-league Springfield, collected two assists in his NHL debut.

THREE STARS OF THE GAME: Jason Chimera Left wing of Washington; Tomas Kubalik, Right wing of Columbus played 15 minutes in first NHL game; Brooks Laich, Left wing of Washington earned two assists and had three takeaways.
