While Columbus sparked a miniature rally with Merzlikins in the cage, the Bolts still managed to put the puck past him three times at even strength. Still, Merzlikins possesses decent ratios, including a 2.86 GAA and a .914 save percentage.

    Blue Jackets' Elvis Merzlikins: Deserves better fate

    Elvis Merzlikins made 31 saves in a 3-2 loss to the Lightning on Thursday.The Columbus Blue Jackets were up 2-1 until late in the third, when the Bolts notched twice just 66 seconds apart. The second goal -- awarded to Brayden Point -- was a centering pass that ricocheted off defender David Savard's skate. Merzlikins had no chance and deserved a better fate. He's 1-3-0 in his last four starts, but again, his record doesn't speak to his play. He's only allowed nine goals in those four games while posting a .932 save percentage. There's plenty of talk about the Jackets weighing trade offers on one of their goalies, but we can't imagine they'd move Merzlikins.
