This time the Finnish puck catcher Jonas Korpisalo entered the gate of Columbus, who, repelling 96.9% of the opponents’ shots, or 31 out of 32 broadcasts on his guarded goal, showed their best performance this season.

The strategy of Blue Jackets coaches is to rotate both goalkeepers by dividing their games time in half. Considering that in the previous duel the discs were caught by Elvis Merzlikins, helping the team to win in overtime with 3: 2, then tonight the security of the fortress was entrusted to Elvis Finnish competitor. The third goalkeeper of the team Matīss Kivlenieks has not been in the game practice this season, because the first two goalkeepers of the team show a fairly stable performance.

Match result In the ninth minute of the first period, with the Blue Jackets playing in the majority, Oliver Bjorkstrand scored from Kema Atkinson and Zak Verensky, finishing the first half of the game with a minimal Columbus lead on the board. After three minutes and 39 seconds in the start of the second period, the difference was increased by “Blue Jackets” striker Eric Robinson.

) Seven minutes later, in the unequal line-up, the goal was played by Dilans Stroums after the passes of Patrick Keine and Dominika Kubalika in the goal-saved goal of Korpisalo, ending the second period with the result 2: 1 in favor of “Blue Jackets”. In the final third of the match, the goal was not scored when Columbus won its fourth victory this season.

“Blue Jackets”, which has the highest number of games in its division, with 11 points won in nine matches, takes the first place in the central division.

The next match will be played by the Blue Jackets, represented by Elvis Merzlikkin, on Monday (January 1), when, most likely, when the Latvian goalkeeper enters the goal, Columbus will look to disappoint the Blackhawks again.
