Columbus loses top defenseman for rest of playoffs

Columbus loses top defenseman for rest of playoffs

The Blue Jackets announced the decision Monday, one day after the 19-year-old rookie took a puck to the face on a shot by Pittsburgh's Phil Kessel that opened a gash on his right cheek in the second period.

To be fair, the Columbus Blue Jackets, Sergei Bobrovsky in particular, were practically stealing money given how they conducted themselves for the first three games of the series.

Thanks to a pair of Maple Leafs goals late in the second period the two teams went into the break tied at three. Talk about clutch. With his overtime victor, Guentzel became the first Pittsburgh rookie to score a hat trick in the playoffs.

The Blue Jackets, down 3-0 in the best-of-seven series, will host the Penguins in Game 4 on Tuesday. The Minnesota Wild, who had a 12-game winning streak this season, are down 0-3 to the surprising St. Louis Blues while Cup favorites Chicago and Washington have been plunged into challenging first-round series of their own. The Rangers managed just 21 shots on goal in Game 3 and had 21 giveaways, including 10 in the first period. Ryan McDonagh kept the puck in the zone and sent a nice pass to Nash near the front of the net and he slipped a backhand past Price at 4:28 for his second of the series.

Considering that this will likely be one game, this move is for the best. Outside of his performance in Game 3, he made things easy on Pittsburgh's offense, which has scored 12 goals in the series, averaging four goals a game.

What will decide Tuesday night's game?

The Pittsburgh Penguins played an impressive game three on Sunday, coming back from a 3-1 deficit to eventually win the game in overtime with a score of 5-4.

Shoot, the Columbus Blue Jackets were right there on the ice and they missed it.

"You earn your bounces", Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby said.

Hornqvist scored a power-play goal at 6:43 to make it 3-1, and Hainsey, a veteran of 907 regular-season games, got his first goal in his fourth playoff game, using a screen by Bryan Rust to score from a low angle at 16:24. We're beginning to learn just how good this kid is at finishing them, even at the end of high-pressure postseason games.

Bad breaks or not, the Penguins just didn't look like they were ready to play in the first six minutes and fell behind 3-1.

But the Blue Jackets will get forward Matt Calvert back for Game 4 (7:30 p.m. EDT, CNBC).

It's been nearly two months since the trade deadline, when we didn't know if Fleury would even be a Penguin this postseason.
