The Columbus Blue Jackets look to avoid the sweep when they take on the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday night.
Columbus Blue Jackets
The Blue Jackets had their chance to make this a series.
They struck right out of the gates in Game 3 scoring just 11 seconds in, sending Nationwide Arena into an absolute frenzy.
After grabbing a 3-1 lead, the 2nd period could not have gone any worse for them. Eventually, things went into overtime, where the Jackets had near miss after near miss before Pittsburgh found the back of the net and took a commanding 3-0 lead.
Columbus now has the tall task of erasing a 3-0 deficit, something that likely isn’t possible. For starters here on Tuesday, getting out early once again and getting this crowd behind them is a must.
The Penguins are proving they are a lot to handle.
Offensively, this team is just too deep and has way too many weapons to control.
Pittsburgh plays with such a high tempo, we’ve seen through the first 3 games that it’s nearly impossible for the Blue Jackets to slow them down.
Marc-André Fleury has been the biggest key however to this first round match up.
He stepped up for the injured Matt Murray and has leaned on his previous playoff experience. Despite the slow start in Game 3, we saw him come up clutch numerous times to keep Pittsburgh in the game and now allow things to get out of hand.
