Guentzel's hat trick puts Blue Jackets on brink of elimination
Through the first three games of round one it isn't out of the question, and, without sounding like Captain Obvious, a quick disposal of the Blue Jackets would be extremely beneficial for the Penguins.

The Oilers have found a new playoff hero in their first postseason trip since 2006. "They earned the win, and we didn't have the desperation that we needed to win the game". The Pens have scored a total of 13 goals from seven different players.
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.
