Penguins at Blue Jackets

Pittsburgh then closed within one at 16:24 of the second when Hainsey scored his first goal of the series on a shot from the boards that went between the legs of teammate Bryan Rust and found its way past Bobrovsky. The Blue Jackets will come out with a strong showing in Game 4 on Tuesday night, but it will be too little, too late.

Nutivaara's goal at 4:48 of the second period boosted the Blue Jackets' lead to 3-0.

The main star of the night was Jake Guentzel, who picked up a hat trick which was completed by his game winning goal in overtime. The best goaltender in the regular season, Bobrovsky has been ordinary at best in the first three games of a series against the defending Stanley Cup champions. He probably would welcome a first-round matchup next year against anyone other than the Penguins and Crosby, the best player of his generation. His father, Mike Guentzel, is the associate head coach for the University of Minnesota men's hockey team. Ryan McDonagh kept the puck in the zone and sent a nice pass to Nash near the front of the net and he slipped a backhand past Price at 4:28 for his second of the series. "But we got through it". "In these one-goal hockey games, we have to stick one in the net". But if they aren't fixed immediately (and they nearly cost Columbus what initially looked like an easy win Tuesday), they will be the nail in the Blue Jackets' anticipated coffin.

But the Penguins regained their composure and pushed back hard during the second period to tie the score at 3-3. Through the first three games of round one it isn't out of the question, and, without sounding like Captain Obvious, a quick disposal of the Blue Jackets would be extremely beneficial for the Penguins. I do not want them leaving tonight not enjoying a playoff win.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The Columbus Blue Jackets scored more goals in the first six minutes of Sunday's game than in their first two playoff games combined. They will need to focus on keeping the high energy all game and take advantage of any mistakes.

He earlier made a big save midway through the first period when Brandon Dubinsky skated in alone on the left wing after a turnover.

Hornqvist struck for Pittsburgh during a power play 6:43 in the second. The Penguins look primed for another championship run, but wit would be nice to see the Blue Jackets slow them down a bit. What's more, their collective relentlessness has never gone away at any point in the series, no matter what the situation. Also, Matt Calvert's return from a one-game suspension will bump Scott Hartnell to the bench, as Tortorella apparently would rather have rookie Sonny Milano, recalled Sunday, stay in.
