Sestito scores OT goal to push Crunch to 2-1 series lead

The Crunched took a 2-1 series lead over the Manitoba Moose last night in another OT game. Jackets 2006 3rd round draft pick Tom Sestito scored the OT game winner and captain Crunch (Zenon Konopka) had a goal and a assist.

This has been one tightly contested series thus far with all 3 games going into OT. The Crunch won the first game 2-1 off goals from David Cullen and Joakim Lindstrom last Friday. The Moose responded a night later to take a 3-2 OT decision which saw Plekanov (man does this kid have a shot - I'll post youtube below) and Duvie Westcott get the goals.

The next two games will be in Manitoba on Friday and Saturday. It will be intersting to see if the Crunch's offense can break loose for a game here. By all account the Jackets prospects of Brule, Brassard, Doresett, Sestito, Lindstrom and Plekanov have shown themselves well thus far. he PK has also played lights out. Adam Pineault is out with what appears to be a broken bone in his foot.
