We wouldn’t be playing here without these two guys, so we’re in a good position to be a goalkeeper.”According to Korpisalo, who retarded 28 shots after the match, the coach passed the information that he will protect the goal in the first game on Saturday. He is the fourteenth goalkeeper in history to make his “dry” game debut in the Stanley Cup.“He played incredibly,” said Blue Jackets defender David Savars. “We, as a team, also played well. In the second third, he repelled several shows by Auston Matthew and that was a turning point.”“I felt pretty confident. The guys struggled for me to see the puck. It was great,” said the Finn himself.“We’ve been waiting for this. The corps is a fighter,” said another Blue Jackets defender, Seth Jones. “At the time we needed it, he played great. At 0-0 they had a chance. We are very happy for him. He sat behind him for years. [Sergejam Bobrovskim] and now he has finally got his chance. ”The series will last until three victories of one team.
