Blue Jackets' Calvert suspended 1 game for hit on Kuhnhackl

Crosby did it for most of Game 2, and Evgeni Malkin got in on the act with his 49th career playoff goal. Zach Werenski also had a goal, and Nick Foligno added two assists.

The Columbus Blue Jackets entered game two in Pittsburgh hoping to even the series and steal home ice advantage before returning to Nationwide Arena.

The Jackets didn't quit, but it also did not feel like they would come back.

Saad, a native of suburban Pittsburgh who was benched for most of the third period in Game 1, tied it in the second.

Through the first three games of the season Allen has turned aside 114 of the 117 shots he has faced in the series.

"We had a couple of times to get the puck out and they worked hard to keep them in".

"We played the game we wanted to".

While the Capitals and Blackhawks are battling to get out of round one, the Pens are just beginning to elevate their game.

If you haven't been paying attention to St. Louis's first-round matchup against Minnesota, here it is, summed up in four words: Jake Allen is good. "It's going to be exciting".

"When they're in that offensive zone, they're as unsafe an offensive line as there is in the game for me", Sullivan said. With just two goals on 72 shots, Columbus' offense has gone dry.

"We've got to find a way to get to the net more", Foligno said. Assuming the swelling goes down, he should be good to go for Game 4. But we can be way better than we were. I don't think we got puck possession, but I've still seen on plays like that refs blow it dead right away. "I don't want to talk about it", the 2013 Vezina Trophy victor said of the gaffe, per the Columbus Dispatch. "I just want to be an effective player when I am coming back in and not hurting anybody by coming back prematurely". Zaitsev didn't skate Friday.

We'll see if the National Hockey League does the right thing here, but I for one am not expecting much from them.

The first time I laid eyes on this line I almost fell out of my chair and onto the sportsbook floor. Despite that switch, the three-time Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks have been in this spot before and won't panic. The Presidents Trophy winning Washington Capitals are in a battle with the Toronto Maple Leafs, with both games needing overtime.

Edmonton center Connor McDavid, the NHL's leading scorer in the regular season, had one assist in his playoff debut to extend his points streak to 15 games. They are the shifts right after an opposing goal is scored that are so crucial to try to reclaim momentum.
