Defensive issues plague Sens, Jackets ahead of battle

Keeping pucks out of the net continues to be an issue for the Columbus Blue Jackets and Ottawa Senators.

With both still looking to clamp down defensively, the Blue Jackets aim to avoid a third straight home defeat and extend the Senators' three-game slide on Sunday night in Columbus.

Entering play Saturday, Columbus ranked 28th in the NHL allowing 3.58 goals per game. Ottawa, meanwhile, was tied for last in the league giving up 3.67 per contest.
