Lets just say the Detroit Red Wings came to play today. Defense Man, Nick Jensen, started the day off with a nice fake off. I mean he faked the goalie, Matt Murray, out. I mean, he faked the shot and Matt Murray went for it. He froooze the goalie. Murray gave his guard up and Red Wings and St Cloud State Huskies’ Defense Man, Nick Jensen, just went around the Goal tender Matt Murray and scored the goal. Nick Jensen, 3rd Goal of the year.

Jacking Up the Win

Columbus Blue Jackets vs. Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday Night. I knew this was going to be a close game. Two good teams going at it. It was going to be a game of heart. Till the end, they battle. They went at each other. The team with the best goalie won.The game was scoreless in the 1st quarter. The second quarter both teams score a goal. Ian Cole, a defense man, scored a goal; and Defense man, Ryan Murray, also scored. The game was scoreless till the end of the 3rd quarter, which means this game went to overtime in which you know it got to be a good game if it went to overtime. Both teams wanted this W.

Sergei Bobrovsky played good for the Blue Jackets; he has 38 saves and was doing his goal tending thing especially against a good team like the Pittsburgh Penguins. Matt Murray, Pittsburgh Penguin goal tender, played good too just not as good as the Blue Jackets goal tender. This game came down to who had the better goalie for the night. Which goalie had more heart. This game was a game of saved and one save was a difference between a Win and a L. 38 saves won the game and 37 saves needed 38 saves to end the game in a tie.

This game went to overtime; and Center, Brandon Dubinsky, scored the game winner to get the Columbus Blue Jackets the winning goal. Columbus Blue Jackets beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-2 in overtime. It was a hard-fought W for the Blue Jackets. They are coming to play after they got the work from the New York Rangers. They bouncing back well. I like the way they are playing. They are playing with heart now. Grrr! Straight heart, that’s how you play. This game shows a lot because it was a heart game. Looks like Center, Sidney Crosby, had quiet night, no goals or the Blue Jackets kept in line. Crosby is a good player.

The team that wants it more tonight won. Heart. All Heart. Brainy Versatility.
