Last night in Columbus, the Bruins did not emerge victorious. Fresh off a small break of an extra day in-between games, the Bruins certainly had a little more pep but had difficulty getting the puck in net. They got it once in a scenario that many were convinced could have been the appearance of NO GOAL.
Jake Debrusk managed to get the Bruins sole goal in the second period. It was reviewed by Toronto and deemed to be good.

It took the Blue Jackets almost an entire period to score their first goal and more than half of the second period to score their second, on a power play after Brad Marchand went to the box for hi-sticking. It’s frustrating to see Brad take the bait and turn into the Brad who hurts his team. I hope he learns to quit it.
So many Bruins took shots that pinged off of cross-bars and posts. At the end of the game with 6 skaters on the ice, the Bruins managed to pressure Bobrovsky, who did not break. The B’s also managed to stop a couple of empty net goals, which would have made things much worse.
The Bruins have one more game to play in Columbus on Thursday night. The B’s are in a must win situation yet again unless they want to return to Boston in a possible elimination game on Saturday. Columbus is playing like they believe they are a team of destiny, which isn’t hard to believe after they slayed the President’s Trophy winners, Tampa Bay Lightning.
