Columbus Blue Jackets remain alive with win over Pittsburgh Penguins

Columbus Blue Jackets Zach Werenski Takes a Puck to the Face Returns to the Game

The first week of the National Hockey League postseason has been about as unpredictable as anyone could imagine, even in a sport where upsets are the norm, home-ice advantage is often meaningless and a hot goaltender can overshadow everything else that's happening.

The Blue Jackets have gotten one win so far after dropping the first three games to Pittsburgh. Rick Nash scored the game-winning goal less than five minutes into the second period.

"We know it's the most hard game", Crosby said of Thursday's potential series clincher at PPG Paints Arena. "I'm not saying that's the case right now". We let up some unfortunate goals in the last game, off our guys, off our opponents.

"They had some good chances in the first but after that I thought we locked it down, we played smart", he said after the 2-1 win.

"With any team, if they're fast you got to get on them quick", defenseman Jordie Benn said.

Nashville isn't overconfident, knowing that the core of this Blackhawks team has won three Stanley Cups in the past seven seasons and won't go out easily. Washington only has playoff disappointments in the rearview mirror, and panic is starting to set in about another early exit. Ottawa and Boston aren't scheduled to play Game 7, if necessary, until April 26.

Boone Jenner scored a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

(At) San Jose 7, Edmonton 0: Joe Pavelski and Logan Couture each scored two goals and the San Jose Sharks rebounded from back-to-back shutouts in emphatic fashion and tied their first-round playoff series at two games apiece.

In the last two games especially, the Canadiens have done a good job of preventing the Rangers from using the up-tempo style they're best at, clamping down defensively and forcing NY to dump and chase. Following a successful penalty kill of a Nick Foligno penalty 19 seconds into the game, the CBJ were able to control the game. But Alex Ovechkin should play more than the 15:08 he did in the Game 3 OT loss. "We've got to be ready to dictate the terms from the very first puck drop". "It wasn't based on play". "I think he's been good". "But we have a lot more work to do".

Though center David Krejci is back, the statuses of Bruins defensemen Torey Krug, Adam McQuaid, Brandon Carlo and Colin Miller are in doubt. In those latter two regards, especially in Game 4, the Penguins got away from that.

Anaheim at Calgary, 9 p.m. There were only four sweeps combined in the first round of the past seven playoffs.

Johansen leads the series with five points (one goal, one assist), while Forsberg has scored twice and Arvidsson once through three games.

"They see it, they're going to stop it".

Jesper Fast also scored for the Rangers, who ended a six-game playoff home losing streak that dated to the 2015 postseason. But you know they're close games, and sometimes you get the bounces, sometimes you don't.

Conor Sheary knows that being back on home ice should give the Penguins a boost. However, in Games 3 and 4 against Columbus, their reliance on a high-tempo game has hindered the defense and made Fleury scramble out of position.

"His play speaks for itself", coach Todd McLellan said. In some ways Game 4 was a gimme.
