Blue Jackets beat Penguins 5-4 to avoid sweep

Early in the second period, the Blue Jackets went up 3-0, only to see the Penguins enter the final frame down a single goal.

The Columbus Blue Jackets staved off elimination in the NHL's Stanley Cup playoffs on Tuesday with a 5-4 victory over the defending champion Pittsburgh Penguins. Carey Price stopped 30 of 32 shots for the Canadiens, who received their lone goal from Torey Mitchell. He had played 907 career regular season games before registering his first goal, point and game played in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, which may seem like a long time (and it is), but it's still far from the all-time record. He's so fast and so big and was certainly was a big part of [the Game 4 win]. "It definitely calms you when you're a defenseman back there in front of the net and you hear Flower hootin' and hollerin' after we're getting peppered with five or six shots". "They earned the win, and we didn't have the desperation that we needed to win the game". The Blue Jackets averaged 44.3 per game in the first three contests. They're really skilled and really good.

"You've got to make sure that you learn quick and you forget quick and you move on". Calvert sat in the press box Sunday night, serving a one-game penalty for breaking a stick over the back of Pittsburgh's Tom Kuhnhackl and then decking him after the game was out of reach Friday night.

SAN JOSE, Calif. - San Jose's victory in Game 4 followed consecutive shutout losses and tied the Western Conference quarterfinal vs. Edmonton at two wins apiece.

Karlsson also said that his line took it upon themselves to take the lead when other Blue Jackets forward lines have struggled to score.

The Penguins now lead 3-1 in the best-of-seven series, which returns to Pittsburgh for Game 5 on Thursday night. "We kind've got away from it and gave them too many scoring chances".

Joe Pavelski finished the night with two goals and an assist for San Jose. "That's what we wanted".

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.

While Alexander Radulov has two goals and four assists in the series, captain Max Pacioretty, who had 35 goals and 67 points in the regular season, has only one assist in the first four games for the Canadiens.

Jake Guentzel got the Penguins within 5-4 with 27 seconds left before the Jackets hung on.

Kim Kardashian West on Kanye's hospitalization: 'This is being a wife'
Kim Kardashian was reported by his side during his stay at the hospital, but she was overcoming her own dramatic experience. Superstar musicians Kanye West and John Legend recently collaborated on a project that had nothing to do with music.

Taking that final step has been a hard process during the Crosby era in Pittsburgh. "It's about the mindset". It's not a wait-and-see approach.

"We've got to be ready to dictate the terms from the very first puck drop". That didn't look like a team that was down 3-zip in a series.

"They've got a lot of confidence right now", Chicago defenseman Duncan Keith said.

Not that anyone actually expected a sweep, but the Penguins can't afford to allow the Blue Jackets back into this series. Seven of the first 26 games have featured a blown lead of two goals or more, 11 have gone to overtime and winning goals have come from some of the unlikeliest of sources.

The high-flying Oilers have been held to just five goals through four games with only two coming at even strength. "But we've got a lot more work to do". He's going to create some stuff out there with the puck.
