Blue Jackets Go Up 2-1 over the Bruins

Brad Marchand was back in the news this week, and it was for all the wrong reasons.

Going 7-for-16 in their first round victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Bruins power play was a key for them.

On Brandon Dubinsky's game-tying goal in Game 1, he and Riley Nash were able to get themselves to the front of the Bruins net easily. "So it is what it is, I'm not overly concerned about what's said in the media and what fans say and stuff like that".

The Avalanche players understand that trying to match goals with the Sharks, more often than not, you will be eaten alive.

The upstart Blue Jackets improved to 3-0 at home this postseason after holding on to take the first game of the series settled in regulation.

It’s official: Easter Monday hottest ever recorded in UK
Saturday's weather saw much of the country bask in temperatures nearly 10C higher than the average for this time of year. Temperatures hit 25.5C on Saturday to make it the warmest day of the year so far - and there is more hot stuff to come.


What isn't tolerated and frowned upon is cheap shots from one player to another. The Blue Jackets controlled a good portion of the middle frame but didn't get anything on the scoreboard to show for it, due in large part to the strong performance of Tuukka Rask between the pipes for the Bruins. Pastrnak got the party started with a shot that trickled through Sergei Bobrovsky 3:33 into the game.

"The secondary saves that he's making are very impressive, but he's going to crack at some point", Carlo said. And CBJ Is up 2-1 On them I am Not Surprised anymore by the Blue Jackets Because they Are now one Of the Favorites to Win the Stanley Cup and If Columbus Plays Like they are Now I would Not Be Surprised if we See CBJ In the NHL East Finals and Possibly the Stanley Cup Finals. "Credit to him [Tuesday], but overall I don't think it's going to last". David Krejci joined Ray Bourque (125) and Bobby Orr (66) as the third player in Boston franchise history to have 60 playoff assists., Columbus has won 13 of 15 games dating back to March 24.

That wasn't enough against the more forceful Blue Jackets. That's why they shouldn't have the review on as much as they do. Bergeron picked up his second goal off a rebound with 2 1/2 minutes left in the game.

That forced him to step in front of reporters between games in this second-round series and face another round of loaded questions about his ability to straddle the line between agitator and aggravator. "There is frustration when top guys don't score".

Columbus gave away six power plays and Boston scored on two of them.

"I'm not giving you my thoughts".
