Brady has been hit 32 times through the first five games of the season, including 16 sacks. Players acknowledged Tuesday those numbers are too high.
We have to do a better job protecting him, running back James White said. We’re all accountable for that.
Added starting left tackle Nate Solder: We hate to see him get hit. Keeping him clean, keeping him upright, that’s our goal every week.
Milano scored on a ricochet off Darling’s backside at 10:01 of the third, becoming the first Columbus player to score in his first three games of a season. Oliver Bjorkstrand and Nick Foligno assisted on the goal.
I just went for a spot goalies usually leave open and got it over the pad, Milano said. It’s good to have three goals in three games, especially being a rookie.
Skinner tied it with an unassisted goal at 18:35 after the Hurricanes had pulled Darling.
But with the clock ticking down in overtime, the 21-year-old Milano scored his second game-winner.
I knew all three guys were caught on my breakaway, he said.
