Guentzel netted a hat trick, including the overtime victor at 13:10 in a 5-4 victory, as the Penguins took a commanding 3-0 series lead over the Blue Jackets in the East Conference quarterfinals.

Columbus trails the Penguins 3-0 in the first round of the playoffs.

Guentzel earned the first playoff hat trick for a Pittsburgh rookie. In Game 2, the Blue Jackets entered the third period losing 2-1 and lost the game 4-1.

What this New York win really does, though, is keep alive the thing we're all expecting - a seven-game series. Karlsson's first playoff goal made it 4-2. "That boosted our play", Jenner said. But they could not manage to hold the lead, allowing the Penguins to go up 4-3 in the third.

Werenski saw on Twitter that a fan wore a shirt displaying a photo of Werenski's brutal facial injury to Game 4 of the Blue Jackets-Penguins Stanley Cup playoff series, Werenski rewarded the fan by giving him an autographed jersey, according to Fox Sports Ohio.

At 5:21, Rust got his second goal of the series when he tipped Brian Dumoulin's shot through Bobrovsky's pads.

It was a brutal loss for the Blue Jackets, who scored 11 seconds into the game and took a 3-1 lead on Werenski's first career playoff goal later in the period. Ten minutes later, Phil Kessel passed the puck out to Hainsey to the far right and he beat a shielded Bobrovsky from a severe angle.

"You earn your bounces, and they were better" Penguins star forward Sidney Crosby said. "We can pout and hang our heads, or we can come to work (Tuesday) and get ready for another game".

Even a late power play for the Blue Jackets didn't seal things, as Jake Guentzel again brought the Pens within one with under 30 seconds to play.

"I'm just proud of the leadership he showed to come back and play and make a difference, Dubinsky added". Edmonton Oilers goalie Cam Talbot (33) lays out to stop a shot next to San Jose Sharks center Tomas Hertl, top, and Oilers' Mark Letestu (55) during the second period in Game 3 of a first-round NHL hockey playoff series.

"No matter what period we're in, we have to have the puck more", Tortorella said.

A few stitches later, with his right eye turning a nasty shade of purple, the defenceman made his way back into play against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
