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

NHL Playoffs Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Columbus Blue Jackets Crosby, Penguins edge Blue Jackets 4-1 for 2-0 series lead

Pittsburgh Penguins' Sidney Crosby celebrates his goal during the first period in Game 2 of the team's NHL hockey first-round playoff series against the Columbus Blue Jackets in Pittsburgh, Friday, April 14, 2017.

Cam Atkinson revved up the Blue Jackets' dormant attack with two first-period goals, and it looked as if Columbus might be on its way to a good night. His team entered the second period down 3-1, but the speedy winger pulled them within one with a goal at 5:21 of the period and then picked up another at 13:25 to tie the game 3-3.

The Edmonton Oilers lead their best-of-seven series 2-1 against the San Jose Sharks after winning game three 1-0. Columbus, now facing elimination, will take on the Penguins again in game four of their opening playoff series on Tuesday at Nationwide Arena at 7:30 p.m. Pittsburgh scored on the sequence, and it was controversial whether play should have continued with Werenski bleeding all over the ice.

Werenski scored 11 goals and added 36 assists in 78 regular-season games.

The Penguins won 5-4, giving them a 3-0 series lead, and Werenski took to Twitter to show off his battle scar.

Marc-Andre Fleury wasn't flawless during Game 3, but he was very good when he had to be, making 33 saves on 37 shots. However, he was unable to play in overtime because his vision was impacted by the swelling of his eye.

Columbus is a big, strong, deep team that surprised many in the season.

Almost halfway through the period, Conor Sheary made a great chase for the puck in the offensive zone, beating Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky to the puck. Let's not give them this chance and keep playing the way we have been. The series continues in Columbus on Sunday night. That being said, the first two periods of each game is where he has shined the most.

The best player of the game was no doubt Sidney Crosby. Parise has 32 goals and 38 assists in 91 career playoff games.

His 20 minutes and 34 seconds of even-strength ice time did not include a goal against, and during that time the Penguins also held a 9-1 edge in high-danger scoring chances as defined by naturalstattrick.com. Sixty-eight seconds later during a power play, Werenski's wrister from the top of the left circle clanged off the bar and into the top of the net to put Columbus up 3-1. We're just trying to read off each other. Can he do anything to turn it around in Game 4? Calvert has one goal in the series. "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're defending hard. Their goalie has been seeing the puck well, and one thing they do well is they have five guys around the paint so it makes it tough for us to get on the inside", Pominville said.
