Blue Jackets go up 2-0 in first round of playoffs

Blue Jackets go up 2-0 in first round of playoffs

The Blue Jackets stunned the Metropolitan Division-champion Capitals with back-to-back overtime wins. Sound familiar? It was a remarkably similar story in Game 1 on Thursday. Every time he's played very, very well, he's had some injuries. Alex Ovechkin was in overdrive mode from the outset and looked like he was there to take charge of the situation and win the game for his team. "It's a setback, but he'll come back strong".

And that's it. Five power-play goals in two games account for the rest of Washington's scoring. The Capitals have done it once, in 2009, and if you're looking for a sign of hope, it happened against the John Tortorella-led New York Rangers. Soon after that, we had needless penalty #1 of the game when Tom Wilson chose to pull a Blue Jacket out of a harmless goalmouth scrum and throw him down to the ice to earn an avoidable roughing minor. Cam Atkinson scored twice, Anderson had a goal at even strength and Zack Werenski added one on the power play for the Blue Jackets, who have the odds on their side.

The Jackets figured out that the way to beat Grubauer is to shoot high. Thanks to two not-so-smart penalties from Tom Wilson (roughing) and Devante Smith-Pelly (holding the stick). They had the home-ice advantage against the Blue Jackets, but that is gone as they lost both home games.

"Obviously we have opportunities to finish it up, but we didn't, two games in a row", Alex Ovechkin said. In short, lapses of judgement and common sense cost Washington dearly in Game 1 and Game 2. And, with less than 25 seconds left in the game - and on the power play (again) - the Caps nearly won it when John Carlson ripped a shot from the blue line off the post.

The second period is where it all started to fall apart.

So, into overtime we went - and after surviving a penalty kill early on, the Capitals went close a few times but couldn't convert.

Greens want to legalise cannabis for all adults
"It drives people away from getting help when they need it and exposes them to a unsafe black market", he said. The Australian Greens have promised this bill will be in parliament by the end of 2018.

Ovechkin will never get an easier shot. By the way, Wilson had a mostly empty net to aim at. They must now try and get back on track on the road, but the Blue Jackets have been a solid home team, so it will not be easy. Burakovsky finished the regular season with three goals and three assists in his last eight games, playing well down the stretch after his season got off to a miserable start.

Blue Jackets goalie Sergei Bobrovsky had one of the best games in Blue Jackets playoff history, as he recorded a whopping 54 saves in the game. He was Columbus's best player and made a career-best 54 saves from Washington's 58 shots.

The Capitals would tie the game and send it into overtime.

The Capitals did just about everything necessary to win Game 2 against the Columbus Blue Jackets and even their best-of-seven series at 1-1.

Philipp Grubauer allowed four goals in Game 1 and four more in two periods Sunday. Jay Beagle redirected a long Orpik wrister from the point to open the scoring in Game 2. The next guy up will be Jakub Vrana. Business as usual always fails for the Capitals in the postseason, year in and year out. The Golden Knights can advance to the second round with a win in Game 4 on Tuesday night at Los Angeles.
