We have game five of one half of the National Hockey League Eastern Conference when the Columbus Blue Jackets meet the Boston Bruins in their second-round playoff matchup on Saturday night at TD Garden. We have a 2-2 series with the series moving to Boston after the two clubs split their two games in Columbus. I’m the Flash and looking forward to discussing this game with you today.

Blue Jackets Give Away Hard Fought Home Ice Advantage

The Blue Jackets took game two of this series in Boston and should’ve enjoyed the home-ice advantage, but they couldn’t hold serve and lost game four in Columbus by a score of 4-1. Columbus had done a fantastic job of keeping Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak in check so to speak but the trio erupted in game four to send this series back to Boston all knotted up at two games apiece.
 
Artemi Panarin scored the lone goal for the Blue Jackets and Columbus allowed two shorthanded goals.
Columbus Head Coach John Tortorella had this to say about the game four loss;
“Their top guys score some goals on the power play, we gave them a chance to get going now by just sitting in that box too much,” Columbus coach John Tortorella said. “That’s the hard part of this game here tonight.”
 
Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 42 of the 46 pucks sent his way in game four and will likely be in the nets for game five in Boston. Bobrovsky is 6-2 during these playoffs with 2.13 goals against average and 93 percent save percentage.

Bruins Blast Columbus to Even Series at 2-2

With their backs against the wall, Boston came up big in game four or should I say the Bruins big guns came up big.  Patrice Bergeron scored a pair of goals, David Pastrnak had a goal and a helper and Brad Marchand had an assist to lead Boston past Columbus by a score of 4-1.  Sean Kuraly also scored a goal in game four.
 
Head Coach Bruce Cassidy had this to say about his star’s performance;
“I don’t think any team wins without their best players being their best players,” Boston coach Bruce Cassidy said. “We can survive for a while. So far in this series we had.”
 
Boston isn’t listing any significant injuries for their matchup with Columbus.
Tuukka Rask was spectacular in game four, stopping 39 of the 40 shots he faced on Thursday night. Rask is 6-5 during these playoffs with 2.11 goals against average and 93 percent save percentage during the 2019 playoffs.
