Jack­ets knock out Maple Leafs

Chicago Sun-Times - - SPORTS -

Joonas Kor­pisalo stopped 33 shots, and the Blue Jack­ets ad­vanced to the first round of the NHL play­offs with a 3-0 win over the Maple Leafs in a de­ci­sive Game 5 on Sun­day.

Zach Weren­ski’s floater from the left point in the first pe­riod held up as the de­cid­ing goal. Liam Foudy sneaked in a shot from a bad an­gle with 8:20 left, and cap­tain Nick Foligno sealed the vic­tory by scor­ing into an open net with 23 sec­onds re­main­ing.

Colum­bus ad­vances to the first round, where it will meet the sec­ond-seeded Light­ning in a re­match of last year’s first-round se­ries. The Jack­ets swept the Pres­i­dent’s Tro­phy-win­ning Light­ning in four games.
