There have been many nights when a point against the Vancouver Canucks would have made the Blue Jackets happy.

But last night, after falling 2-1 in a shootout in front of 14,852 at Nationwide Arena, the Blue Jackets were kicking themselves for spotty play in the first two periods and wondering aloud whether NHL officials didn’t play a role in the end of their five-game winning streak.

Mark Letestu scored for the Blue Jackets and goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky continued his masterful play with 37 saves as the Jackets managed to extend their points streak to eight games, tying a franchise record set during the inaugural season.

“We found a way to get one point,” center Ryan Johansen said. “But it’s frustrating that we didn’t come up with two.”

Mason Raymond scored the only goal by either team in the shootout, on a spin move that flummoxed Bobrovsky and had the Blue Jackets bench — not just coach Todd Richards, but several players — calling for an official review. Did the puck move stop and move backward? Did Raymond skate backward before shooting? Both are rule violations.Mike Murphy, the NHL’s vice president of hockey operations, said the league reviewed the goal immediately.“We felt this was a continuous-motion play,” Murphy said.Richards disagreed.“I have looked at it,” Richards said. “I guarantee if you ask (Vancouver), they’re going to say it’s a good goal. To me, it looks a little questionable because it looks like he does take a step backward. To me, it looks like the puck is moving backward.”

The NHL has allowed so-called spin-o-rama goals as long as the puck doesn’t stop.Seconds after Raymond’s goal was counted, the game ended when Letestu’s shootout attempt was poked away by Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo.

Before Letestu, Johansen and Matt Calvert had been denied by Luongo on their attempts.
