Penguins beat Blue Jackets in OT, Canadiens defeat Rangers

But if they aren't fixed immediately (and they nearly cost Columbus what initially looked like an easy win Tuesday), they will be the nail in the Blue Jackets' anticipated coffin.

The Penguins are now just one game away from being done with the Columbus Blue Jackets and their repeated attempts at committing assault and battery instead of playing hockey, before moving on to the next round of the playoffs.

Or were you mesmerized, like just about everyone else watching the Penguins-Blue Jackets game Sunday night?

What the Blue Jackets probably didn't expect, however, was to have the Penguins bungle a few defensive-zone decisions, leading to more than a few scoring chances. Guentzel scored a shorthanded goal late, but Sullivan wasn't exactly complimentary of the trio postgame. Phil Kessel was credited with three assists.

The Blue Jackets led 3-2 entering the third and scored just 27 seconds into the period. A two-goal deficit in Game 3, even though the Penguins insisted they liked their game.

John Tortorella's team couldn't cash in its solid stretches of play with goals, and Bobrovsky, who will likely win the Vezina Trophy, turned back into the sieve he has always been in the postseason.

The Penguins scored a short-handed goal with the goalie pulled with 26.4 seconds left when Guentzel put a rebound past Bobrovsky for his fifth goal of the series.

Marc-Andre Fleury also held down the score in net.

But back came the Penguins. The Canadiens defeated the Rangers 3-1. He scored his first career goal with his first career shot on the first career shift with the Pittsburgh Penguins and finished the night with a pair of goals.

There may be various price targets for a stock. (NASDAQ: TSLA ) have set a consensus target of $251.916 on shares. American automaker Tesla is making plans for an additional two or three more factories in the years ahead.

Columbus, with good reason, expects him to be a difference-maker for a lot of years.

The Blue Jackets are down 3-0 in the best-of-seven series.

Johnson scored first for the Blue Jackets at 11:46 of the opening period when he launched a wrister from the right point into traffic that bounced off Sidney Crosby's skate and into the net.

Werenski dropped to the ice instantly and began bleeding profusely.

That opportunity will come in Game 5, scheduled for Thursday night at 7:08 at PPG Paints Arena. Veteran D Kyle Quincey, a midseason pickup in a trade with the New Jersey Devils, took Werenski's place. Add in the players like Sheary, Guentzel, and Bryan Rust alongside them and you've got a winning combination.

The defending champion Penguins will go for the sweep in Columbus on Tuesday night.

Game 1 wasn't close for the Blue Jackets.

NOTES: Tortorella scratched veteran winger Scott Hartnell on his 35th birthday, replacing him in the lineup with Lukas Sedlak, who returned from an injury.
