Boston Bruins vs Columbus Blue Jackets – Round 2 – Game 3 Recap

Game Recap:

Bruins came to play in the first period of game three. Throwing the body around and clogging up the neutral zone, it looked like we’d see a classic Bruins game. But then tides changed with about 7 minutes to go in the 1st period. Columbus started to control play and throw their body around. With a few minutes left Boone Jenner beamed down the ice and undressed the Bruins defense and scored to give the Jackets a 1-0 heading into the intermission.

Columbus picked right back up where they left off in the 1st period. Controlling the play and throwing their weight around. Matt Duchene added his 5th on the powerplay on a costly penalty by Brad Marchand. But with forty seconds to go in the 2nd period DeBrusk would come right up the middle and look to score. But the Ref waived the play dead and called it no goal. Refs decided to go upstairs to make sure and Goal-Review board called it a goal on a continuation.

The third period would bring some serious pressure from the Bruins but they couldn’t beat Sergei Bobrovsky, as the Blue Jackets held on for a 2-1 series lead.
