Steve Mason isn't getting blamed for Columbus' 5-1 loss.
Mason made 37 saves in the defeat. Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards said that his teammates left him out to dry while R.J. Umberger suggested that even Patrick Roy wouldn't have been able to save Columbus on Wednesday. When it comes to Columbus it's almost a moot point because they are likely to get outclassed a lot this season. If you own either of their goaltenders, you will probably end up having to endure more than your fair share of games like this.
