Crosby, Penguins edge Blue Jackets 4-1 for 2-0 series lead

Crosby, Penguins edge Blue Jackets 4-1 for 2-0 series lead

The Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman took a shot to the face from Pittsburgh Penguins forward Phil Kessel in the second period of Game 3 of their first-round series. Game 4 is Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. ET.

The Blue Jackets got the first eight shots of the game, but Pittsburgh scored on its first shot, thanks to keen forechecking by Sheary. "It's a pretty unique night".

The Penguins' Jake Guentzel had a hat trick, including a goal at 13:10 of overtime for the game victor, but Werenski made the biggest impression of the evening.

Sidney Crosby and the defending champion Penguins have looked impressive in jumping out to a 2-0 lead against the Blue Jackets. He now leads the league with four postseason goals - one more than the Wild have managed in three games against the St. Louis Blues.

"We played the game we wanted to, we just weren't able to bury our chances and they did", Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky said.

He was thrilled his Penguins climbed out of that 3-1 hole, which included a goal by the Blue Jackets' Cam Atkinson just 11 seconds in. The first goal that Sergei Bobrovsky gave up last night is the type of goal that Fleury has given up in the past. Let's not give them this chance and keep playing the way we have been.

Jake Guentzel, Penguins - There is not much left to say about the Penguins' stud rookie, except he has impeccable timing.

Werenski roofed the wrist shot over Fleury's glove side and off the crossbar into the net.

The momentum lasted all of 51 seconds, or as along as it took for Crosby and Guentzel to break in 2-on-1. After a Penguins turnover, Atkinson skated in on Fleury, dragged the puck in front and fired a low backhander.

A melee broke out when Steve Ott flattened Zuccarello and it was the Rangers who seemed to get a lift from it as they tied it 9:58 into the second. "They stick around and wait for their opportunities to pounce, and they took advantage of it".

Alexander Radulov had a goal and an assist, and Montreal used a suffocating defense to beat NY in Game 3 of their first-round series at Madison Square Garden.

Bryan Rust enjoyed the reward for the Penguins' efforts, scoring on a deflection from in tight at 5:21 to make it 3-2. Pittsburgh scored on the sequence, and it was controversial whether play should have continued with Werenski bleeding all over the ice. "I think he's got a quiet confidence about him that's he's displayed from Day 1 since he's been part of the Penguins". They've imposed physical play and a strong forecheck at times - just not consistently enough. Veteran goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury, replacing injured starter Matt Murray, has been sharp for the Penguins and made a critical mask save of a potential game-winning Brandon Dubinsky shot in overtime Sunday.

"Jake is mature beyond his years", Sullivan said.
