Panarin picked up an assist in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Bruins in Game 5. It wasn't his best effort Saturday. Panarin's overhandling of the puck in the offensive zone and then his inability -- of lack of effort -- to get back on the back check directly led to two Bruins goals, including the winner. The Bread Man's game will be better in Game 6. It has to be or the Jackets will be on the golf course sooner rather than later.
Panarin scored his fifth goal of the playoffs in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Bruins. The Bread Man now has 10 points in eight postseason contests in 2018-19. Panarin's goal midway through the first period cut Boston's lead to 2-1, but after a scoreless middle frame, the Bruins would add two goals in the final period, making it a 4-1 final.
Panarin scored twice and added an assist Saturday in Columbus' 3-2, double-overtime win over Boston in Game 2. The series is now tied 1-1. The Bread Man delivered Saturday. He has four goals and nine points in six postseason games. Panarin is leading the Jackets and setting himself up for a massive payday once free agency opens July 1.
Panarin had an assist in Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to Boston in Game 1 of the best-of-seven series. Five games, six points. It's been business as usual for Panarin so far this postseason, as he continues producing at a high level for the Cinderella Blue Jackets. His assist Thursday gives him points in all five playoff games. Game 2 will be Saturday, and it's a good bet Panarin will find his way onto the scoresheet before the final buzzer sounds.
Panarin scored an even-strength goal and added a power-play assist in Friday's 5-1 win over the Lightning. His third-period goal was an absolute beauty, as Panarin finished of a tic-tac-toe passing sequence from Oliver Bjorkstrand and Matt Duchene for his first tally of the postseason. Panarin and Columbus will take a shocking 2-0 series lead back home Sunday.
