NHL: The Blue Jackets won 5 to 2 and handed the Bruins their third straight defeat

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Spencer Martin made 31 saves and five different scorers helped the Columbus Blue Jackets to an impressive 5-2 win over the Boston Bruins on Monday night.

The Jackets (7-12-4) added just their seventh win to their record, but this one was well-deserved, as they fired 41 goals past the Bruins (14-4-3), who have lost three straight. After a resounding start to the season.

Goaltender Jeremy Swayman was ejected from the Boston game after giving up two turnovers on 19 shots. He didn’t look particularly good on Columbus’ first goal, a goal by Dmitry Voronkov.

β€œIt’s my decision, we can talk about it,” head coach Jim Montgomery reportedly told Swayman as soon as he got to the bench, thanks to Linus Ullmark.

Three of Voronkov’s citizens also hit the target. After Ivan Provorov, it was the turn of Igor Chenakhov, then Kirill Marchenko, who scored 4 to 0.

Martin fumbled for the first time when he was tackled by Matthew Poitras 8:24 into the third period.

The Bruins tried to get close by pulling Ullmark with less than seven minutes left, but Justin Danforth instead took advantage to put the game out of reach.

Bruins reserve John Beecher then completed the scoring with 2:20 remaining.

Boston will continue its home game against the San Jose Sharks on Thursday, before heading to Toronto for an intra-division matchup against the Maple Leafs on Saturday.

The Lightning goaltender was playing his second game of the season after recording an 8-2 win Friday over the Carolina Hurricanes. This time he gave up three goals on 23 shots, while the Avalanche’s final goal was scored into an empty net by Valery Nikushkin.

Johansen opened the scoring in the first half after a double draw with Jonathan Drouin. Johansen chose to shoot and beat the Lightning goalie.

In the second half, Vasilevskiy made a great save with a pass to his right to deny Tomas Tatar from scoring. But Johansen pounced on the return throw to double his team’s lead.

Moments later, on a power play, Cale Makar fired a shot from the point to make it 3-0. Thus, he scored his second point in the match.

Anthony Cirelli allowed the Lightning to reach the goal with 30 seconds left in the second period. He beat Alexander Georgiev in a breakaway. The Avalanche goaltender was perfect against the Lightning’s 15 shots in the third period to close out his game with 40 saves. Thus, he helped his team achieve its fourth consecutive victory.

Luukkonen comes to thwart the Rangers

Uukko-Pekka Luukkonen stood like a wall against the New York Rangers, giving the Buffalo Sabers a 5-1 win.

The goalkeeper finished the evening making 25 saves out of 26 shots. He saved his best save for Jimmy Vesey in the third period. The Rangers forward found himself in front of an empty cage after a pass from Blake Wheeler, except for Luukkonen extending his stick to block Vesey’s shot and prevent the ball from crossing the red line.

Alex Tuch shined offensively for the Sabers with two goals while teammates Viktor Olofsson and Owen Power each had two assists. JJ Petrka, Casey Mittelstadt and Kyle Okposo also ran the red light in the victory.

Igor Shesterkin stopped 34 pucks, allowing four goals, and saw the Rangers’ winning streak cut to three.
