Blue Jackets stay alive in National Hockey League playoffs with win over Penguins

In Game 1, the Blue Jackets built a 16-3 shot advantage in the first, which ended scoreless.

The defending Stanley Cup champions are hoping a better start will help them finish off Columbus.

The Columbus Blue Jackets scored more goals in the first six minutes of Sunday's game than in their first two playoff games combined.

"Ugly" is a pretty good word to describe the Oilers' overall effort after grinding out two tough wins.

"We played with a lot of energy", Karlsson said. A short summer and busy season that included a World Cup appearance for numerous Penguins' stars means they've played a lot of hockey in the past year.

Patric Hornqvist, Ron Hainsey and Tom Kuhnhackl also scored for Pittsburgh.

Not that one sloppy night at the office can spoil all that, but Game 4 wasn't shimmering with many silver linings. "They earned the win, and we didn't have the desperation that we needed to win the game".

"We were in the game all night long". "Last game, we didn't play the game our way". "I think in the case of (Tuesday), it wasn't our best game".

Conor Sheary knows that being back on home ice should give the Penguins a boost. The Penguins' goal is to ensure that the Blue Jackets' comeback narrative evolves no further. Pittsburgh managed to rally and win Game 3 in overtime but couldn't quite get there in a 5-4 loss in Game 4 as Columbus extended its season.

The majority of the Blue Jackets' offense in Game 4 was driven by the team's gritty third line of Matt Calvert, William Karlsson and Josh Anderson.

There were some nervy moments - Pittsburgh twice cut it to a one goal deficit, including with 26 seconds to go and the net empty - but this time, on this night, the hometown boys answered the call.

Jenner gave the Blue Jackets some breathing room again with a tip-in from in front of the goal on a shot from Brandon Saad that made it 5-3.

"With any team, if they're fast you got to get on them quick", defenseman Jordie Benn said. Schultz, a member of the Flyers, is already out, and if Bouwmeester doesn't score in the Blues' run this season (they're up 3-0 on Minnesota in Round 1), they could both surpass Gill for No. 2 next season.

But back came the Penguins.

The Blue Jackets had seized a 3-0 lead before Hornqvist's power-play goal at 6:43 of the second.

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Guentzel became the first player to score five goals in his first four career playoff games since legendary Montreal Canadiens star Maurice "Rocket" Richard in 1944. Despite holding on by the skin of their teeth late in the second period, the Blue Jackets never faltered and never relinquished their lead. And if those don't have time to add up over the course of a series, they certainly do over the course of a post-season.
