Columbus loses top defenseman for rest of playoffs

Columbus loses top defenseman for rest of playoffs”

Columbus' Josh Anderson, right, tries to control the puck as Pittsburgh's Olli Maatta defends during the second period Sunday in Columbus, Ohio. It was later revealed he suffered facial fractures in the blow.

The Blue Jackets got a goal from Karlsson 27 seconds into the third that seemed to pump them up again.

At 5:21, Rust got his second goal of the series when he tipped Brian Dumoulin's shot through Bobrovsky's pads.

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.

In round one, they didn't want to go back to MSG for a game six - so they dismantled the Rangers 6-3 on home ice. Shoot, the Columbus Blue Jackets were right there on the ice and they missed it. He now leads the league with four postseason goals - one more than the Wild have managed in three games against the St. Louis Blues.

Here's to hoping this series doesn't get past Game 5, and that the Caps and Leafs keep wearing each other out in total track meets.

Guentzel earned the first playoff hat trick for a Pittsburgh rookie.

Jake Guentzel speaks with a soft voice and is generously listed at 5-foot-10 and 167 pounds, but the 22-year-old rookie has provided loud performances while standing tall in each contest of the Pittsburgh Penguins' opening-round set versus the Columbus Blue Jackets. Assuming the swelling goes down, he should be good to go for Game 4.

Trump attacks "unfair" Canadian dairy industry
Schumer, Gillibrand and Sen. "Can we renegotiate and get a better NAFTA deal?" "The whole thing is ridiculous". New York's senators are pushing to change a Canadian trade policy they say is hurting dairy farmers.

"They've all been good games".

Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist, coming off a playoff career-high 54 saves in Game 2, stopped 26 shots in this one. "Unfortunately we didn't get it done, and now we're in a situation where it's do or die", Dubinsky said.

The Oilers have found a new playoff hero in their first postseason trip since 2006. The young legs of the Maple Leafs are giving the slower-footed Capitals defensemen some fits, and I don't expect that to change as the series heads to Toronto tonight (semi-bold prediction: Toronto 4, Washington 3).

"His play speaks for itself", coach Todd McLellan said.

"The most important part of it is, we bent a little bit but we end up scoring. He's been tremendous for us".

Nash gave the Rangers a 2-1 lead early in the second. San Jose's quartet of 25-goal scorers in the regular season - Joe Pavelski, Brent Burns, Patrick Marleau and Logan Couture - have none so far in the playoffs.

ST. LOUIS - Blues forward Paul Stastny skated for the first time in a month on Tuesday after missing the last 13 games with a lower-body injury. "Then, we can decide how we approach the rest of the series from there".
