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.
Falcons stopped the Patriots with a 3 and out to start the game. They stopped Blunt on 3rd and 1. This stop told me a lot about how the game is going to play out. Falcons’ defense might be the real deal. KEY WORD: MIGHT BE. Ryan got the ball for the 1st time and hand it off to Devonta Freeman for a long run. Good blocking by Julio Jones on that play. The game was close at 0-0, LOL. Tom Brady didn’t have a good 1st half which is rare. The Falcons’ defense looking good. Brady threw an interception for a touchdown; he getting sack like Geesh! Pats’ offensive line better tighten up. The Pats are down big at the half 21-3.
Matt Ryan with a touchdown and 7-8 with 115 yards in the 1st half. Freeman got a touchdown and that long interception touchdown from Brady. A shocker interception. A 82 yards TD from Robert Alford after picking Tom Brady. BUT the second half start off looking different with Patriots’ defense stopping Freeman with a 3-yard loss. Patriots’ defense came to play in the second half. Patriots showing their Patriots right now. Julian Edelman got a big return back. Patriots finally got a TD late in the 3rd quarter with Tom Brady throwing it to James White but missed the extra point field goal.
Pats went for an on side kick but Falcons got the ball back. Falcons D balling out and this game looks like a blow out at the end of the third. But remember what I said the Falcons’ defense suspect. What a shocker! A lot of people are shock at the outcome of the game right now. Matt Ryan, the NFL MVP, looking like he is going to win his 1st Super Bowl. Matty Ice finally living off to his name. So you think. At least that’s what I thought till he fumbled the ball. Looks like Patriots were out of this game but cant count Brady out. From a blowout to a 8-point game after Brady got a TD to Danny Amendola and James White got the two-point conversation. Brady got the ball back with 3 plus mins in the game.
This is a GAME! Pats coming back and coming back strong. This game is a SUPER BOWL game. Exciting Brady doing his thing. Falcons being the Falcons let the Pats come back and the game went to overtime. Brady going to show his heart and do this. Pats’ defense playing good as I thought. Edelman made the play of the game in the late 4th quarter that man got heart (Grrrrrrrrr! pounds chest*). That dive catch he made? Oooo weee. That’s what the grrrrrrrrr am talking about. Protect your family and he did. As for the Falcons guess they was feeling themselves and didn’t know they are playing the Pats…so yeah, OVERTIME! Pats won the toss. Brady won the Super Bowl. Falcons playing like I been saying all time long the defense is suspect even though they played good all game long till crunch time. They got no heart, to be honest. It was like Pats was giving them hope thinking they going to win.
The team with the more heart won. Falcons choked big time, waste all that time. They was too happy. This is why I don’t like happy people on my team…finish the game. Too busy thinking they won when they game is not over. Pats stopped playing with them and the Pats’ defense (like I have been saying) came alive in crunch time. Falcons’ defense suspect I was surprised they played that good but I knew Brady wasn’t going to go out like a duck. He came through. This was a good game. I would be mad if my teammates played like that. It all comes down to the leader though. Matt Ryan suppose to calm his teammates down and be Matty Ice BUT he was not that. I always slapped the happiness whenever one of my teammates is happy, because when you happy in sports, you don’t let your guard down and I don’t have time for that. Brady won 5 Super Bowl Trophies with playing in the 1st overtime in NFL Super Bowl history.
Have fun, be focus and be adaptive. Brainy Versatility.
