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

Game Recap:

Bruins came to play in the first period of game two. Controlling the majority of possession and capitalizing on their only powerplay opportunity courtesy of Matt Grzelcyk 1st of the playoffs.

Columbus jumped right back into the mix courtesy of Artemi Panarin who scored twice in the 2nd frame, while David Pastrnak scored for Boston in between the two Panarin goals.

The third period would bring some back and forth play but no goals. Just back and forth which would lead us to overtime again for the 2nd period.

The overtime would be back and forth all period with Rask making some brilliant saves and Bobrovsky doing the same. But nobody could find the back of the net. Second OT will bring the next opportunity.

In the second overtime, the Blue Jackets would get a powerplay and capitalize on a rebound goal from Matt Duchene to tie the best of 7 series at one and head back to Boston.
