NHL playoff capsules: Pittsburgh Penguins beat Columbus Blue Jackets 5-4 in OT to take 3-0 series lead

Cam Atkinson struck first and then added a second goal five minutes later for the Blue Jackets to make it 2-1 in favor of Columbus.

The Pittsburgh Penguins captain reacted tepidly. They will need to focus on keeping the high energy all game and take advantage of any mistakes.

"Sid and the Kids" are growing up on the job.

"When they're in that offensive zone, they're as unsafe an offensive line as there is in the game for me", Sullivan said.

NEW YORK - Alexander Radulov had a goal and an assist to lead Montreal to a 3-1 victory over the New York Rangers on Sunday night, giving the Canadiens a 2-1 lead in the first-round playoff series.

With Dubinsky in the box for cross-checking, Guentzel got his second goal of the game 11:48 into the third period to give the Penguins the 4-3 lead.

"I wanted them - some guys with limited playoff experience, some of them with none - just to try to enjoy a win", Tortorella said. "But we've got a lot more work to do". I think we're just trying to read off each other.

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. He still has not played a lights-out game all series, which has to make the Penguins feel good despite the loss. "In these one-goal hockey games, we have to stick one in the net".

Sergei Bobrovsky made 27 saves for the Blue Jackets, and Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 29 shots for the Penguins. The Columbus goalie got most of the shot, but it dribbled in off of him anyway to give the Penguins life heading into the second intermission. Bobrovsky had 42 saves.

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) - Connor McDavid and Zack Kassian scored short-handed goals to help the Edmonton Oilers beat the San Jose Sharks, levelling their first-round series at one game apiece. Hockey players are a different breed of human.

The Blue Jackets wasted little time revving up their dormant offense after the puck dropped. Columbus' best chance to draw even came late in the second when Pittsburgh defenseman Brian Dumolin went off for holding.

It's been nearly two months since the trade deadline, when we didn't know if Fleury would even be a Penguin this postseason. Columbus holds off elimination for another day, just barely.

Sources told ESPN.com's Pierre LeBrun early Saturday that the league's Department of Player Safety would not be suspending Calvert for the incident, which took place with 35 seconds remaining in the game.

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. Boone Jenner and Scott Harrington received misconduct penalties after the final horn.

"We haven't won anything right now", coach Mike Sullivan said while meeting with reporters at the team hotel. The Pens responded less than two minutes later to climb back within one. He was the backbone all season for a Columbus team that relied on him to steal them games, and more often than not, that's what he did.
