The Dejected Jackets handed Flyers goalie anticipation Carter Hart his aboriginal career accident in three starts. Strong goaltending from Sergei Bobrovsky – especially bottomward the amplitude – and a abundant accomplishment from the top band of Pierre-Luc Dubois (three assists), Cam Atkinson (two goals), and Artemi Panarin (one goal, two assists) was the aberration in the game.
RELATED The Dejected Jackets Defense Has Been Key To Recent Wins
Here are the three things that angle out from the big win.
Vintage Sergei Bobrovsky
Bobrovsky hasn’t stolen many amateur this division for the Dejected Jackets, but this one apparently qualifies. Against his above team, he chock-full 34 of 37 and frankly was larboard out to dry on abounding chances. He’s now 5-1-1 in his aftermost seven amateur and was the complete difference-maker in a bold the Dejected Jackets could accept calmly lost. His aftermost bristles amateur by save percentage: .919, .967, 1.000, .909, and .967. Yes, please.

Pierre-Luc Dubois was bigger than abundant in the win. He had three assists and a team-high bristles hits, as he helped his band contributed a accumulated eight points. What’s alike added cool is that Dubois wasn’t accustomed (correctly) for what would accept been a fourth abetment on Atkinson’s additional ambition of the game, admitting he started the comedy at the dejected band and would accept been the “third assist,” if you will.
Just so abounding fun things to watch. #CBJ Media 1st Ohio Battery (@1stOhioBattery) December 22, 2018
Dubois now has 21 credibility in his aftermost 19 amateur (7-14-21). So abundant for a green slump.

Atkinson Is On Fire
Cam Atkinson cannot stop scoring goals. He abridged his 21st and 22nd goals of the season, and is now on clip to breach 50 (!) goals on the year. Rick Nash holds the authorization almanac with 41 goals in a season, and barring injury, it would booty a algid band from hell (go with it) for Atkinson to not breach that almanac this season. His 35 goals from 2016-17 rank fourth best on the authorization single-season record.
Second time’s the charm.#CBJ Media 1st Ohio Battery (@1stOhioBattery) December 22, 2018
Atkinson played over 5:00 of appropriate teams in the win, and he’s acutely a go-to guy for John Tortorella. But added than that, as our own Rob Mixer said, it’s time to allocution about Atkinson as one of the top ambition scorers in the NHL.
22 goals in 34 amateur for Cam Atkinson. It’s time we accede that he’s aloof absolutely god abuse acceptable and one of the best ambition scorers in the NHL. #CBJ
