Pittsburgh Penguins Matt Cullen clears a rebound behind goalie Marc Andre Fleury before Columbus Blue Jackets Oliver Bjorkstrand can get his stick on it during the period in Game 2 of an NHL first-round hockey

Following a hearing with NHL Player Safety, Columbus Blue Jackets forward Matt Calvert has been suspended one playoff game for his hit on Pittsburgh Penguins' forward Tom Kuhnhackl during Friday's Game 2, the department announced on Saturday.

Crosby had a goal and two assists and Marc-Andre Fleury made 39 saves in Game 2. Bryan Rust scored two second-period goals, while Jake Guentzel tallied a goal in the third period and then again in overtime to finish off a hat trick and the come-from-behind victory. St. Louis opened the scoring with another goal scored by Joel Edmundson (?!) on a power-play shot from the point.

After getting the winning goal in overtime in Game 2, Alexander Radulov put the Canadiens up 3-0 Sunday night, giving him two goals and three assists in the last two games. His status for Tuesday's game is unknown.

On a team with Crosby and Malkin, you could do worse than picking Rust or Guentzel. "It's 3-2 and we've got lots of time".

Columbus is a big, strong, deep team that surprised many in the season.

His club-record 102nd playoff appearance looked an terrible lot like his 101st, when he held the Blue Jackets in check during an early push then waited for NHL's best offense to find its footing.

Trailing by two goals after one period, the Penguins started the second as the aggressors and responded with a pair from Rust to tie the score at 3.

People waiting in the Ramousah garage heard the blast, and said they feared revenge attacks by pro-government forces. The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the explosion appeared to have been caused by a bomb.

The Pittsburgh Penguins were banged up in mid-March and needed a spark. He played in four regular-season games for the Blue Jackets. Sheary sent the puck out front to the bottom of the left circle for Guentzel, who kicked the puck from his skate to his stick and fed Crosby near the right post at 8:31 of the first.

Joe Thornton's return to game action Sunday was cause to celebrate for Sharks fans. "We've got to come to work tomorrow, try to get better and make sure we come out with same excitement we have in the first three games, and just try to sustain it for 60 minutes".

Montreal 3, N.Y. Rangers 1: Alexander Radulov had a goal and an assist to lead the Canadiens over the Rangers in NY, giving Montreal a 2-1 lead in the first-round playoff series.

Play continued, as it is allowed to by the rule book, and with the Blue Jackets down a man, the Penguins took advantage of the pseudo-powerplay and tied the game with a goal.

"When you're playing a goalie like (Sergei) Bobrovsky you have to get your shots off quick", Guentzel said. Although he was given a two-minute minor penalty for cross-checking, expect a suspension coming his way.

The momentum lasted all of 51 seconds, or as along as it took for Crosby and Guentzel to break in 2-on-1.
