Matt Calvert Viciously Cheap-Shots Tom Kuhnhackl Late In Penguins-Blue Jackets

Share

Columbus Blue Jackets winger Matt Calvert has been suspended one game for cross-checking Tom Kuhnhackl of the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference playoff series.

The usual Penguins suspects did their thing Friday night in a 4-1 win over the Blue Jackets, taking a 2-0 series lead on home ice.

With or without Calvert, the Blue Jackets need to get back on track if they have any hopes of dethroning the reigning Stanley Cup champions. "It means a lot as a team, and you don't want to let your guy down when they make a play like that".

The Penguins took a 1-0 lead in their series against the Blue Jackets following a 3-1 win Wednesday night.

Fleury finished with 39 saves while filling in for the injured Matt Murray, and received plenty of help.

"Quite frankly, I think we were running out of the way trying to hit guys too much", coach Bruce Boudreau said. Crosby turned Pittsburgh's first shot of the game into a 1-0 lead, though he had the easy part: settling the puck at the doorstep then flipping it home. Nick Bonino beat out an icing and dropped the puck to Patric Hornqvist, who threw it toward the net where Bonino beat out Carlsson to whack the puck past Bobrovsky. Considering how comfortable Fleury looked while tying a club record by making his 101st playoff appearance, there's no hurry to rush Murray back out there. Although it has only been two games for the Pens, they look poised for another deep playoff run with depth scoring and simple defense on display.

But there was also a new character: guest host Jimmy Fallon, as the dialogue-free, bulletproof vest-wearing Jared Kushner. The victor of the two (one of whom was pictured in the photo Trump was holding) would stay on staff.

Being tied 1-1 in a series is nothing new for the Rangers. Their six-man blue line group, buoyed by the return of Robert Bortuzzo, averages 6-foot-4 and 215 pounds. The Jackets only had three high danger chances at 5 on 5 according to Natural Stat Trick but by having the puck they held the Penguins to just six HD chances, something that was done only 13 times in the regular season.

Game 2 is Friday in Pittsburgh. They've imposed physical play and a strong forecheck at times - just not consistently enough.

"You can't overreact to that", Sharks coach Peter DeBoer said. He retaliated on Kuhnhackl with 35 seconds left in the second game of the team's playoffs series when the match was clearly out of reach. "We can't get away from what's made us successful".

But I do think it necessarily sends a signal to Xi Jinping that this is a president that means business. About 21% of China's exports go to the USA while 10% of United States shipments go to the mainland.
