Duchene, Columbus beat Bruins 3-2 in 2 OT, Tie Series 1-1 (Vid)

first_imgBOSTON — Sergei Bobrovsky stopped Patrice Bergeron at point-blank range in overtime. He also made an acrobatic save to stop a 90-foot dump-inthat took a bad hop straight toward the net.Whatever the shot, the Blue Jackets goalie was ready.“There’s not many goalies that stop that puck,” said Matt Duchene, who scored at 3:42 of the second overtime to give the Blue Jackets a 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins early Sunday morning and tie the series at one game apiece.“It should’ve been over right there. Honestly, on a dump-in, which is insane,” Duchene said. “That guy — anything’s possible. He’s something else.”Bobrovsky stopped 29 shots — 10 of them to hold off the Bruins in a frantic first overtime — and Artemi Panarin had two goals and an assist on the game-winner for Columbus, which fell behind twice.Matt Grzelcyk and David Pastrnak scored for Boston, which won the opener 3-2 — also in overtime. Tuukka Rask made 36 saves.“We’re so evenly matched, I find, with the way we both play and there’s not much room out there. There’s no one really taking over the game,” Duchene said. “It’s such a stalemate out there and I’m not surprised it went to overtime back-to-back games.”And now the Blue Jackets are heading back to Columbus, where they have already finished off the No. 1 team in the NHL this season. Games 3 and 4 are Tuesday and Thursday nights.“I hope they have a ball tonight,” Columbus coach John Tortorella said. “And they should, they should feel really good about themselves.”Panarin’s second goal made it 2-2 with 12 minutes left in the second period, and it stayed that way through a scoreless third and a first overtime in which the Bruins killed off one penalty. But when Bergeron was sent off for tripping in the second OT, the Blue Jackets made them pay.Less than a minute later, Duchene kicked the puck onto his stick and slid it through Rask’s legs. As the Columbus players celebrated against the boards, the Bruins filed off the ice and many fans threw the giveaway yellow towels onto the ice.“You work hard to put yourself in a good position. Tie game. It’s on me, obviously,” Bergeron said. “The stick got caught. It’s one of those plays that you make many times and it’s not going to happen, but my stick shouldn’t be there at this point in the game.”The Bruins took the lead about eight minutes into the game with a power-play goal by Grzelcyk . It was still 1-0 at the end of the first, when Brad Marchand was called for cross-checking after the first-period buzzer.Sixty-three seconds into the power play to begin the second period, Panarin tied it on a one-timer from Seth Jones. But less than a minute later, Game 1 hero Charlie Coyle went behind the Columbus net and backhanded it off Pastrnak’s skate into the net.Then things started getting really physical.Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara was off for cross-checking when Columbus forward Josh Anderson, whose interference penalty led to the first Boston goal, was called for a high stick that left a bleeding gash under Sean Kuraly’s left eye.Anderson was given a four-minute minor, but there was still a minute left on Chara’s penalty and during the four-on-four Panarin tied it with a perfectly aimed, top-shelf wrist shot from the right side.“Their best player, Panarin, basically beat us twice on a power play. That shouldn’t happen,” Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said. “That’s one thing we wanted to take away.”Columbus then killed off the last three minutes of the Boston power play.“It could have gotten away from us there,” Tortorella said. “I just liked our desperation.”NOTES: The Bruins honored Boston Celtics Hall of Famer John Havlicek before the game. Rather than a moment of silence in memory of the Celtics’ career scoring leader, the Bruins played a highlight video and asked fans to stand and applaud. A spotlight shone on his No. 17 on a banner hanging from the TD Garden rafters. Havlicek died Thursday at the age of 79, and news broke during Game 1 of the Bruins series. … Coyle has five goals in nine playoff games with Boston after scoring seven in 44 postseason games (six seasons) with the Minnesota Wild. … Panarin has a point in all six playoff games this year, a franchise record that surpasses the five straight by Boone Jenner in 2014. … Bruins forward David Krejci, a game-time decision, took regular shifts. … It was the seventh straight day there was an overtime game in the NHL playoffs.UP NEXTGame 3 is Tuesday night in Columbus.By: Jimmy Golen, AP Sports WriterTweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Rep Pagel More money for road improvements headed to Berrien Cass counties

first_img Categories: News,Pagel News 20Mar Rep. Pagel: More money for road improvements headed to Berrien, Cass counties Road repair crews in Berrien and Cass counties will have more money than previously expected this construction season, state Rep. Dave Pagel of Oronoko Township announced today.A $175 million transportation project funding bill newly signed into law includes additional money headed directly to counties, cities and villages for road improvements. The money is already available because various state departments did not spend as much as originally projected during a previous budget cycle, meaning no additional fees or taxes are needed for the investment.“After this terrible winter, our roads are in extremely rough shape,” Pagel said. “This additional investment is the latest step in an ongoing effort to address an urgent need in southwest Michigan and the entire state.”The primary road agency for Berrien County will get an estimated $1.15 million in additional money, while Cass County’s agency will get an estimated $524,238 in extra funds. Cities and villages with road departments get extra money in addition to that, including Baroda ($6,789), Berrien Springs ($13,509), Buchanan ($36,770), Eau Claire ($5,897), Edwardsburg ($8,782), Galien ($5,355), Grand Beach ($5,871), Michiana ($5,084), New Buffalo ($20,560), Niles ($84,782) and Three Oaks ($11,997).The extra money comes in addition to record-high road funding provided by previous long-term reforms. The state also has strengthened its warranty system designed to make new and refurbished roads last longer.###last_img read more

STAR PREVIEW Wednesdays World Cup games

first_imgSouth Korea v GermanyFIFA World Cup 2018 Group Stage15:00 BBC OneIf Germany do go on and become the first team since Brazil in 1962 to retain the World Cup title the story of the whole tournament will surely be their Houdini escape act against Sweden.Germany looked down and out – not just of the match – but the whole tournament before their desperately late winner from Toni Kroos.There’s still to be a job to be done and surely Germany will make certain in style without any further last minute drama having already skirted with elimination?In simple terms, they must beat South Korea by two or more goals or better Sweden’s result to guarantee qualification.Joachim Low’s side will need to so without Jerome Boateng who was red-carded against Sweden and for South Korea captain Ki Sung-yueng is out with a calf strain.Germany need to get their tournament going and there is no better match than this.

Thankfully for them, Coutinho did find a way through a dogged defence and a few minutes later Neymar scored once again to put gloss on a gutsy 2-0 win.Neymar lit up the last tournament before his injury sent Brazil into emotional overdrive and he is once again proving to be an anchor. This time the issue has been two poorly tempered performances – and a lot of more frustration from the player himself given that he is not at his sharpest after missing three months of the season.He could easily have been sent off against Costa Rica when slamming the ball into the ground after a decision went Costa Rica’s way (he escaped a booking for a blatant dive before VAR caught him). After being fouled 10 times in the opening game against Switzerland, he was caught between trying to do everything or doing nothing in the face of pressure from opposition defenders and Tite must get his main man to share the ball or show more strength.Serbia lost a hard fought and well contested encounter with Switzerland on Friday but the difference between the two teams was a brilliant solo winner from Xherdan Shaqiri who picked up the ball from inside his own half. Serbia took a deserved lead thanks to and dominated the first half before Switzerland improved, and a draw would have been a much fairer result.They beat Costa Rica with an identical score line but a more convincing performance than Brazil offered, and nothing we’ve seen so far suggests they can’t make life very tough for the tournament favourites. The 11/2 with starsports.bet is tempting but backing them on one and two goal handicaps looks a solid position.RECOMMENDED BETS (scale of 1-100 points)BACK SERBIA +1 for 5 points at 17/10 with starsports.betBACK SERBIA +2 for 5 points at 8/15 with starsports.betCLICK HERE FOR STARSPORTS.BET MARKET Switzerland v Costa RicaFIFA World Cup 2018 Group Stage19:00 ITV4Switzerland would have bitten your hand off for four points from their opening two World Cup games and they are now within touching distance of the last 16 with Costa Rica standing in their way.The Swiss have perhaps had their biggest stroke of luck before the game, with Granit Xhaka, Xherdan Shaqiri and Stephan Lichtsteiner all available for after avoiding bans for a ‘double-headed eagle gesture’ during their crucial victory over Serbia. They were instead fined by Fifa for “unsporting behaviour” following their controversial celebrations that came with a lost minute winner against Serbia after an extremely tense game.Snatching that late goal has given them a fine chance at progressing here although a draw would probably have been the deserved result given how strongly Serbia started. That said, Vladimir Petkovic’s side are nothing if not difficult to beat – they have lost just one of their last 24 matches.Costa Rica are eliminated from the tournament, but they will not be easy to dislodge here. Los Ticos went down deservedly to Serbia, but they made Brazil sweat for every second of their 2-0 defeat when goals at the death from Coutinhio and Neymar were required to break the deadlock. Keylor Navas made fine saves from Gabriel Jesus, Coutinho and Neymar as the favourites put the pressure on but despite 72% possession they looked as if they’d be denied for a long time and it could be an equally tight ride for the Swiss.In Granit Xhaka and Xherdan Shaqiri they have the gamebreakers to force a result – and a draw could well be enough – but this has cagey written all over it. A one goal winning margin for Switzerland (13/8 with starsports.bet) in what is a tight race but perhaps bank on it being 1-0 for extra value.RECOMMENDED BETS (scale of 1-100 points)BACK 1-0 SWITZERLAND for 5 points at 5/1 with starsports.betCLICK HERE FOR STARSPORTS.BET MARKET PROFIT/LOSS SINCE JAN 1 2017: PROFIT 145.52 pointslast_img read more
