Columbus Blue Jackets defenceman Zach Werenski on a better day, during the regular National Hockey League season. Columbus would love to duplicate that start at home once again as they followed it up with a three-goal first period.

By contrast, the Penguins had all the answers.

Marc-Andre Fleury, meanwhile, has posted a 1.86 goals-against average. Instead of pylons, the Penguins center used Blue Jackets' defenders.

Guentzel netted a hat trick, including the overtime victor at 13:10 in a 5-4 victory, as the Penguins took a commanding 3-0 series lead over the Blue Jackets in the East Conference quarterfinals.

Just like in Game 3 when they rallied from a 3-1 deficit, the Penguins began roaring back.

A win in the series against the Penguins would be great, but ultimately a series loss is a series loss.

Maybe it was well-deserved after a couple bad breaks went against the Penguins. The Blue Jackets were lucky to get out of the last few minutes of the period without another score from the swarming Penguins.

Columbus got offense from its lower lines, building leads of 3-1, 4-2 and 4-3 before Jenner poked in a goal amid heavy traffic 5:37 into the third period for a 5-3 lead. In more than one series - ones with the Rangers and Capitals come to mind - the Penguins were verbally adamant about ending these series the first chance they had. He made a great save late in the third period on Ron Hainsey, but that was one of his only noteworthy positive contributions all night.

Right now, with the exception of the Canadiens leading the Rangers 2-1, every other Eastern Conference series is tied at one game apiece. Bobrovsky (27 of 31 on Tuesday) does not look at all like a man up to that task. Despite their impressive season the Blue Jackets will go out with little more than a whimper. Kyle Quincey took a stupid penalty up 3-0 and the Penguins' subsequent power-play goal almost turned the tide dramatically enough to actually shift the final outcome of the game. "I want them to be able to put that on and just jam with it so they can feel good about themselves, then we'll decide how we approach the rest of the series from there".

Finally, and probably most importantly, the Penguins are still the Penguins. They've got nothing to lose.

"We're all excited here tonight", Columbus winger Brandon Saad said.

"They play this crap for music after the game".

What will decide Tuesday night's game?

Quite the contrary, actually.

"I said to him, 'I'm proud to be your teammate".

Yes, a sweep would have been very nice, but don't sweat Columbus' victory.

Johnson scored first for the Blue Jackets at 11:46 of the opening period when he launched a wrister from the right point into traffic that bounced off Crosby's skate and into the net. It was barely enough.
