Even after the Jones goal I had no confidence that lead would hold up.

Team doesn't have that killer instinct to put teams away and to not let teams back into games.

Columbus WILL make the playoffs... and I doubt the Oilers will at this stage. Those two teams are at the opposite ends of the spectrum in both talent and determination.
CBJ will probably battle like hell for the remainder of the season but I can't see them making it with all of those road games remaining. That said, unlike the Oilers they're delivering on home ice and giving their long suffering fans their money's worth so props to them.
