Three takeaways from the Blue Jackets 1-0 SO victory over Detroit
One: It took almost half the first period to get any sustained pressure in the Detroit zone. Their lone power play was stop-start and unable to get a cycle going. All in all, it was a less than stellar twenty minutes of hockey by both teams.
Two: They got their hard-hitting game on and started to slow Detroit down slightly. Bobrovsky is in fine form and channeling his inner brick wall. Boone Jenner is using his big body like a bulldog. The team did a good job staying disciplined against the Red Wings.
Three: The refs swallowed their whistles in the third period and it became a good, old late 90's clutch and grab game. The overtime period was a back-and-forth affair with the game decided in the shootout with Boone Jenner scoring the game-winner. Bob was in Vezina-form tonight.
Overtime: Jeremy Morin, in his debut for the team, meshed very well with Nick Foligno. Some really good, heads-up passing between the two of them might portend good things to come.
