It went from bad to worse for the Columbus Blue Jackets and goalie Anton Forsberg against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday.

The Lightning opened up a 2-0 lead less than seven minutes into the first period, with goals 21 seconds apart, then expanded that lead to four goals after 20 minutes. That essentially ended the night for Forsberg, who was pulled to begin the second period after allowing four goals on 15 shots faced.

The team in front of him wasn’t very good, either. Columbus had four shots on goal in the first period. Goalie Curtis McElhinney entered the game for the Blue Jackets to begin the second period.
