A bunch of young players helped the Columbus Blue Jackets defeat the Pittsburgh Penguins by a score of 3-0 on Monday night in a pre-season game.
The first choice of the winners in 2020, Yegor Chinakhov first opened the scoring in the first period.
In the third period, it was the turn of Adam Boqvist, a 21-year-old defenseman acquired in the trade that sent Seth Jones to the Chicago Blackhawks, to spark the red light behind the Penguins’ net. Then, 22-year-old Emil Bemstrom completed the score with just over two minutes left in the game.
The tandem made up of goalkeepers Jean-François Bérubé and Jet Greaves shared the shutout in front of the “Jackets” cage. At the end of the meeting, they had rejected the 28 throws of their rivals who did not put on the ice a very competitive formation.
