Bruins Game 27 Recap: Resume not panicking.

See? I told you it was just one game. Of course the Blue Jackets are not anything like the Red Wings (or even the Rangers) but they’re still professionals. The Bruins held Columbus to a season-low 14 shots against backup goaltender Chad Johnson and never really looked like anything other than the better team. Two goals in the opening period were all that it took, and Boston had a permanent lead before the first intermission. Early in the third, they were ahead by three. Two of the three belonged to Milan Lucic, who increased his team lead in goals scored to 11 with a power-play tally in the first period and bounced a puck into the net early in the third.

Columbus at least spoiled the shutout with fourteen minutes to go, but that was the end of their offense as the Bruins held them down the rest of the way to earn their second victory in two days. This never really seemed like much of a contest, as the Bruins outclassed the Jackets most of the night and weren’t in any real trouble at any point. The two teams came to blows at a few different points, maybe the result of a visibly weaker team trying to provoke a stronger opponent or maybe just a result of the Jackets’ frustration but that was the only real drama from the game. Boston has a four-day break between now and their next contest in Montreal on Thursday. So rest easy and wait for more exciting Bruins hockey. Or just sleep until then.
