NHL Predictions: Will the Blue Jackets win Game 3 vs

Columbus Blue Jackets winger Matt Calvert has been suspended one game for cross-checking Tom Kuhnhackl of the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference playoff series.

The Blue Jackets started out aggressively, and the early pursuit resulted in a goal just 11 seconds into the game, marking the first time Columbus held a lead over Pittsburgh after 120 minutes of hockey in the series.

San Jose Sharks right wing Joonas Donskoi, left, from Finland, scores the winning goal against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday, June 4, 2016, during overtime of Game 3 in the NHL Stanley Cup Finals in San Jose, Calif.

The Pittsburgh Penguins look to take a commanding 3-0 series lead as the series shifts to Columbus for the next two, beginning on Sunday evening. Columbus has scored more than three goals just once in its last 13 games.

Marc-Andre Fleury finished with 33 saves for the Penguins, and Sergei Bobrovsky had 42 saves for the Blue Jackets.

Game 2 was feistier and uglier than Game 1, though the same late-game drama stayed intact. "But if we can get a little bit in their head, and more importantly for us start to find the blueprint of what we need to do to be successful and keep getting better as a group, then we're happy".

Jakob Silfverberg and Rickard Rakell scored first-period goals and John Gibson made 35 saves in the Ducks' 29th consecutive victory over the Flames at Honda Center.

Zach Werenski is a budding superstar who has played well in the first two games of the series.

The caption the 19-year-old added to his snap was: "Playoff hockey", as if those words were explanation enough.

Calvert was given a two-minute penalty, but there was only 30 seconds left.

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

Central to numerous Blue Jackets' highest and lowest moments, the physical forward finished with two points, including the goal that forced overtime, and he tilted the ice in his team's favor.

"I don't have one (complaint) about the team", Tortorella said. The team also held a pregame moment of silence and put together a video tribute that aired in the arena during a first-period stoppage in play. Maybe, but of the two playoff wins they've accumulated, only one has come on home ice.
