Pens rally from 2-goal deficit, beat Blue Jackets
Pittsburgh Penguins
Pittsburgh trailed 3-1 early in the second period.
Pittsburgh, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Brandon Sutter scored the game winner 8:18 into the third period, as the Pittsburgh Penguins potted three unanswered goals en route to a 4-3 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series from CONSOL Energy Center.

The Blue Jackets built a 3-1 advantage under a minute into the second period, but Pittsburgh, which finished tied for the NHL's top power-play unit in the regular season, netted a pair of power-play goals 45 seconds apart to tie the game less than 2 1/2 minutes into the middle stanza.

Sutter supplied the winner with a wrister from the right circle, while Marc-Andre Fleury made nine of his 31 saves over the final 20 minutes to help the Pens draw first blood in this best-of-seven set.  continue>>
