NHL: Stanley Cup Playoffs-Columbus Blue Jackets at Boston Bruins Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

The Columbus Blue Jackets hit the ice Saturday night looking to even their second round series with the Boston Bruins. Columbus started slow in game one, but let a third period lead slip away as they fell in overtime.

Saturday, the Jackets juggled the lineup ahead of their game as Torts made an ... interesting lineup decision.

Wennberg has been healthy scratched for the last few weeks, and made his postseason debut in game two against the Bruins.

Torts made no other lineup changes.

How did the Jackets do? Let’s find out.

First Period

Columbus struggled in the first. They were outhit and outscored 1-0.

Second Period

Boston scored once. Panarin scored twice.

Third Period

Tie game. Wanna have a cardiac event in overtime? Hope so.

Bonus Hockey

Matt Duchene, team leading scorer in these playoffs, won it.

Final

Columbus Blue Jackets 3 Boston Bruins 2 (2OT)

Closing Thoughts

Sergei Bobrovsky was a monster in this game. Easily the best game of his playoff career. He made several outstanding saves.

Artemi Panarin was fantastic, scoring two pivotal goals including one from an impossible angle.

Other than that? Who cares. Coming home with home ice advantage.

See y’all tuesday.

Go Jackets.
