Johansen’s OT Goal in Game 6 Leads Top-seeded ’13-’14 Blue Jackets to Qualifier Final Over 4th-seeded ’14-’15 Blue Jackets

It was a low-scoring series and a goaltending dual starring Sergei Bobrovsky, the starter for both teams. In Game 1, Bobrovsky stopped 34 of 36 for the top-seeded ’13-’14 Blue Jackets as they took the opening game 3-2. Nick Foligno and Marian Gaborik both tallied two assists in the win. Game 2 was the highest scoring game of the series at 4-3, in favor of the top seed with Bobrovsky stopping 41 of 44. Ryan Johansen led the way offensively with two goals and one assist. The 4th-seeded ’14-’15 Blue Jackets took the next two games, both by the score of 2-1. Bobrovsky stopped 92 of 94 shot against in those two games for the ’14-’15 Blue Jackets. Foligno collected three goals and Johansen tallied three assists in the two wins for the ’14-’15 Blue Jackets. Then, Bobrovsky posted a 31-save shutout for the ’13-’14 Blue Jackets in Game 6. Cam Atkinson and defenseman James Wisniewski, along with Johansen, both posted a goal and one assist for the top seed as they won 3-0. They then held a 2-0 lead with just five minutes left in the third period of Game 6. However, a goal each from Brandon Dubinsky and Johansen in the final minutes tied the game for the ’14-’15 Blue Jackets, which forced overtime. Late in overtime, after two minutes of 4-on-4, Johansen beat Bobrovsky to seal a 3-2 win and a spot in the Final.
