Jackets' Werenski exits game after puck to face

20 April, 2017, 13:47 | Author: Alberta Rodriguez

Entering Tuesday, the Blue Jackets probably couldn't have even been labeled a playoff team that is trending downward.

Well, that was child's play compared to what the 22-year-old Guentzel did Sunday night against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Columbus would love to duplicate that start at home once again as they followed it up with a three-goal first period.

With a little less than seven left on the clock in the first overtime, Sidney Crosby: Went. To.

Columbus isn't the only team in trouble. The goal in OT helped clinch game 3 and a 3-0 lead in the series.

St. Louis outshot Minnesota 15-9 in the first period, but couldn't build on its early lead.

Game 5 is Thursday night in Montreal before the series returns to Madison Square Garden on Saturday night.

Sergei Bobrovsky made 27 saves for the Blue Jackets, and Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 29 shots for the Penguins.

"I just met with him in the office (Monday) and that's the first thing that comes out of his mouth; he's upset that he can't play", coach John Tortorella said of Werenski, who had one goal in the series and was first in National Hockey League scoring among rookie defensemen with 47 points (11 goals, 36 assists).

What else do we know as we head into Game 4?

Crosby played keep-away with three Blue Jackets players behind the net before passing the puck to a perfectly positioned Guentzel in front during overtime on Sunday night. Kessel's shot rolled up Werenski's stick and struck right below his eye. He suffered a fractured cheekbone.

Game 4 is set for 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.

Allen was the star of the first two games.

There was "nothing that led to it", he said.

What, Mr. Tortorella, are you and your players thinking ahead of Game 4?

"It got to the point where he couldn't see", Tortorella said after the 4-3 overtime loss. Even when they would win series, they would too often leave the door open for opponents or let series go an extra game or two. Unfortunately, all that aggression still saw them lose the game, as well as lose forward Matt Calvert to a one game suspension.

The Rangers managed just 21 shots on goal in Game 3 and had 21 giveaways, including 10 in the first period. You have to give them credit. "We've been pretty good at that the last few games". We just tried to stay in it and give ourselves a chance.

It ended another tough night for Bobrovsky, whose goals against average (3.49) and save percentage (.897) are among the worst in the playoffs' opening round.

The Oilers have found a new playoff hero in their first postseason trip since 2006. Of course, this has not worked at all, as through three games the Crosby line has totaled 11 points. "He's been tremendous for us".
