READ: Revs’ Heaps furious Farrell held out for final play Despite the controversial nature of the call, New York know they could have avoided such a game-altering scenario had they killed off the match earlier, and Cahill even sympathized with Bazakos despite labeling the penalty kick dubious. You have to work with the referees and the officials, Cahill said. When you watch the replay then he might think it hit his shoulder, but he doesnt get to see that straight away. He has to react at the heat of the moment and hes got [no] different angles. For us, its frustrating but it must be frustrating for him as well because there are so many situations that referees get put in, he added. We got a draw out of it.

Not so fast. Mark Letestu and Nick Foligno netted goals 4:19 apart in the third period to erase Columbus’ deficit, and Cam Atkinson scored in the fourth round of a shootout to lift the Blue Jackets to a 3-2 victory. Sergei Bobrovsky made 28 saves through overtime and then stopped three of four shootout attempts. “We pull for each other,” Foligno said. “We played hard, the way we expect to play every night. We were rewarded for it. “We kept pressing and wound up with a great result.” Columbus doesn’t know much about blown third-period leads as the Blue Jackets have won 27 straight since January 2012 when leading after two — including a 13-0 mark last season. “The team was working really well together,” said Bobrovsky, who sported a blue velvet and gold crown in the winning dressing room. “We have to be together to win. Tonight we did a great job of that. The hard work paid off.” The Islanders and goalie Evgeni Nabokov seemed to be in complete control before Letestu and Foligno struck. The Blue Jackets managed only 12 shots in the first two periods before turning it on in the third. “Tonight was a full team effort, and we got the job done,” Atkinson said. “Now we have to keep it going. We played Blue Jackets hockey.” New York built its lead in the second on a power-play goal by defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky and an even-strength tally by Matt Moulson .
