Hockey is Back! CBJ Beat the Pens in OT!
- Updated: September 16, 2013
Ryan Murray is ready to put on a CBJ sweater and contribute! Or at least after 1 Pre-Season game he appears to be! The #2 Overall pick in the 2012 draft took a slick feed from RJ Umberger and buried it with .22 seconds left in OT to sink the Pens.
Overly sensitive Pens fans will tell you that its only the first Pre-season game, and that this really doesn’t matter. But CBJ fans will tell you differently. In my eyes, this is just the beginning. It really doesn’t matter to me that the game was played by back-ups, or that some of the star players only played a few minutes. The fact that we scored 5 times, 2 of those goals given up by “The Flower”, makes it worth it for me. Letestu, Atkinson, Anisimov and Wisniewski also scored for the Jackets!
Also, Former Jacket Rusty Klesla took a very nasty hit from Jordan Nolan on Sunday. Apparently he has a neck injury, according to the Coyotes! Get well Soon Rusty!
