Zach Werenski nailed in face with puck, posts pic on Twitter

Cam Atkinson had two goals for Columbus, and Zach Werenski and Dubinsky also scored.

With the Penguins in control of the puck in the offensive zone, officials did not blow the whistle, which according to the rule book is at their discretion.

Game 3: Blackhawks at Predators, 9:30 p.m. ET, CNBC (Predators lead 2-0) - It's easy to focus on Chicago's sudden inability to score in 120 minutes to open the playoffs, armed with the likes of Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews and more.

Werenski, being the tough hockey player that he is, returned to the game in the third period with a full visor to protect the nasty gash beneath his swollen right eye and his plugged right nostril.

He tweeted a photo of his face after the game that showed his eye almost swollen shut.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not teasing Columbus for the Blue Jackets' use of awesome music to hype the crowd - it's fantastic. Guentzel is the first Pittsburgh rookie to get a playoff hat trick.

Radulov, who got the overtime victor in Game 2 on Friday night after Tomas Plekanec tied it with 18 seconds left in regulation, has two goals and three assists in the past two games.

Atkinson got his second goal at 5:02 of the first when he picked Sidney Crosby's pocket at the right circle and beat Fleury with a backhand. The Canadiens defeated the Rangers 3-1.

"He's been unbelievable, a big reason why we got these three wins, and it gives us a lot of confidence", Schwartz said of Allen. "He's making some big, timely saves, which gives us a lot of momentum".

Crosby played keep-away with three Blue Jackets players behind the net before passing the puck to a perfectly positioned Guentzel in front during overtime on Sunday night.

His one-handed dangle in the third period of a 3-1 Game 3 win over the Rangers is an early contender for goal of the postseason.

The 22-year-old rookie capped his hat trick by slipping it past Sergei Bobrovsky at 13:10 of the extra period for a 5-4 win and a 3-0 advantage for Pittsburgh in the playoff series. Malkin, who missed the last three weeks of the regular season with a shoulder injury, has six points (2 G, 4 A) in three games.

Brandon Dubinsky had tied the score at 4 with 4:49 left in the third period when he punched in a rebound on a hard shot by Blue Jackets teammate Jack Johnson.
