Jackets Rout Flyers in Columbus

Late in the second, Umberger put the Blue Jackets up, 2-0. At that point it was appearing the Flyers were rolling over to Columbus.

Unless you are a Columbus fan of course.

The Wings made plenty of poor mistakes giving the Jackets the chance to capitalize early in the game and giving them a momentum that the Wings just could not shatter.
