Blue Jackets' Werenski out for playoffs with face fracture

As has been the norm in the series, the Blue Jackets continued to apply pressure in the first period and opened a 2-0 lead with 1:04 remaining on Anderson's first career playoff goal.

Columbus got a break after the Penguins won the opening faceoff and were preparing to move to neutral ice when the puck hit an official's skate and allowed the Blue Jackets to race in for a goal 11 seconds into the game.

But the Blackhawks, winners of three Stanley Cup titles in the past seven years, now trail 0-3 for the first time since the 2011 quarterfinals. I don't think we got puck possession, but I've still seen on plays like that refs blow it dead right away.

He was hurt in the second period when Pittsburgh Penguins' Phil Kessel shot the puck.

"He is on a fast-track path to be one of the mainstays in this league", coach John Tortorella said. For now, the Columbus Blue Jackets will have to battle on without him.

The Rangers, who gave up the tying goal with 18 seconds left in the third period of Game 2 before losing in overtime, stopped Montreal in the final minutes in this one. So they can feel good about themselves. "But we got through it".

Rowney's dogged work along the boards, from the goal line to the blue line, denied the Blue Jackets an opportunity to set up in the Penguins' zone.

With a Game 3 overtime loss fresh in their minds and a sweep to their Metropolitan Division rivals a real possibility, the Blue Jackets have a lot of soul searching to do. Karlsson's first playoff goal made it 4-2. He was waiting to the right of the net to collect a rebound on a shot by Jenner and beat Fleury to the glove side.

Just like in Game 3 when they rallied from a 3-1 deficit, the Penguins began roaring back. Less than two minutes after Nutivaara's goal, Hornqvist made it 3-1 with a power-play goal at 6:43 of the second. His rebound shot from the doorstep rolled up the pad of Bobrovsky with the goalie dropped in front of the net.

Entering Tuesday, the Blue Jackets probably couldn't have even been labeled a playoff team that is trending downward. Blue Jackets C Lukas Sedlak returned after missing the previous eight games with an upper-body injury. Coming back from 3-0 in a series has been done before, and it can be done again.

The Penguins' centers got worked over on faceoffs, 36-21.

Zach Werenski finished the regular season with the most points scored by a Columbus Blue Jackets rookie with 47. He replaced veteran Scott Hartnell, who was a healthy scratch.
