Columbus Blue Jackets vs Boston Bruins – Round 2 – Game 1 Recap

Game Recap:

Bruins came to play in the first period outshooting Columbus 14-4 and killing off two Blue Jacket Powerplays and scoring what seemingly was a goal Sergei Bobrovsky would love to have back to complete an almost perfect 1st period on home ice. Columbus looks a step behind which could be a case of rust – after having such a long layoff.

Columbus took a step forward in the second period taking their game up a notch and controlling most of the play. Upping their physicality and getting into the face of Rask.

The third period would bring some real excitement with the Blue Jackets making an epic comeback in a matter of 13 seconds to take a 2-1 lead into the last 5 minutes of the period. That’s where Boston native Charlie Coyle would take over this game, Scoring with  5 minutes left to tie the game and take it to overtime.

The overtime would be all Boston and once again Charlie Coyle would seal the deal 5 minutes into the overtime period and give the Bruins  1-0 lead in the best of seven series.
