Blue Jackets Win Game 3, Take 2-1 Series Lead Over Bruins

Brad Marchand is held back by an official

All three top-liners contributed Thursday night as the Bruins beat the Blue Jackets 4-1 to even their Eastern Conference semifinal series at two games apiece.

For a Bruins team that loves to work the puck in and out of the bumper position, the Bruins need to find a way to space out the four Blue Jackets Penalty killers and get back to moving the puck through the bumper. In Game 1 of the Boston-Columbus series, Marchand sneakily stepped on Cam Atkinson's stick, breaking it at the face-off. The mistakes and poor play is something those in junior hockey are not doing.

For the second time in this series, the biggest news is one player that is not being talked about.

"Quite honestly, I didn't think", Bobrovsky said.

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

Marchand insisted he did it because the Blue Jackets had been punching his teammate, Jake DeBrusk, but then said it was getting blown out of proportion. All three games have been decided by a single goal, but each team had only one game played within one goal in the first round.The Bruins officially outshot the Blue Jackets 105-97 through three games but have 49 more total shot attempts than Columbus thus far. 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.

The Blue Jackets didn't take the deficit lying down, although their first goal did come with significant help.

Patrice Bergeron added another with his second power play goal of the game, effectively putting the game on ice. "You know it was an unnecessary play, but it is what it is, the games go on and we'll worry about the next one". That's why they shouldn't have the review on as much as they do. A frustrating paucity of goals, only two in the last five periods of regulation and two overtimes. Nothing too serious, but still very effective in angering the Columbus players and fans. That act earned him five games off.

On Artemi Panarin's rocket of a goal in Game 2, Chara is down low all by himself with two Blue Jackets in front of Rask trying to take his vision away. Once you're in there, you'll get some O-zone time.

You give them that many opportunities every game, they are going to score.
