National Hockey League roundup: Blackhawks, Blue Jackets on edge of elimination

National Hockey League roundup: Blackhawks, Blue Jackets on edge of elimination

The Penguins let a chance to sweep the Blue Jackets slip through their fingers with a 5-4 loss in Game 4 of the teams' opening-round playoff series Tuesday at Nationwide Arena.

"We'll try to figure out how to go about our business and manage the series", coach John Tortorella said. "That's the way we've won all year".

Game 5 is Thursday night in Montreal before the series returns to Madison Square Garden on Saturday. "Get our home fans behind us", Sheary said. "We know it's the most hard game".

The Penguins weren't able to finish off their Metropolitan Division rivals on the road.

Patric Hornqvist, Ron Hainsey and Tom Kuhnhackl also scored for Pittsburgh.

NYC wants Uber to add just the tip
That said, other respondents still tip what they want regardless of suggested tip amounts or the presence of a "no tip" option. He said he hopes the tipping option could spread to other cities or states through similar regulations if it takes hold in NY .

"I know our team is capable of playing a much better game, a much more complete game on both sides of the puck", Penguins head coach Mike Sullivan said.

Sergei Bobrovsky, an issue this series for the Blue Jackets with an.897 save percentage through three games, was slightly better in denying 27of 31.

"We've played good hockey, and it's unfortunate we've put ourselves in this situation", Blue Jackets captain Nick Foligno said Monday. "If you feel too good about yourself after a win, it carries into the next game and could be risky". Obviously scoring big goals but doing a lot of other things during the game - the penalty kill portion of it, the forecheck, the momentum. "I think last night - and our numbers show it - we gave up nearly double the amount of chances off the rush, and a lot of that has to do with the decisions that we make with the puck or our lack of attention to details as far as getting on the right side of people in the 50-50 battles or in those critical areas of the rink". The Penguins insisted they needed to stay in the moment.

The Blue Jackets will look to win another game on Thursday in Pittsburgh and keep their playoff hopes alive.

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.

NBA Playoffs 2017: Spurs vs. Grizzlies Game 2 live stream
The Memphis Grizzlies are planning to be without Tony Allen for their first round playoff series against the San Antonio Spurs. That's the way that they like to play. "We went over it (in game planning), we expected it, but we didn't respond well to it.

After getting saved by the bell, Columbus made it 4-2 at 27 seconds of the third period.

Rangers 2, Canadiens 1: Rick Nash and Jesper Fast scored and Henrik Lundqvist made 23 saves as NY evened its first-round playoff series with Montreal at two games apiece.

The Rangers, who gave up the tying goal with 18 seconds left in the third period of Game 2 before losing in overtime, stopped Montreal in the final minutes in this one. Jenner gave the Blue Jackets some breathing room again with a tip-in on a shot from Saad that made it 5-3. But you know they're close games, and sometimes you get the bounces, sometimes you don't. Eventually, they figured, the desperation of the playoffs would bring that, especially against a Penguins team that plays an offensive brand of hockey.

Pittsburgh then closed within one at 16:24 of the second when Hainsey scored his first goal of the series on a shot from the boards that went between the legs of teammate Bryan Rust and found its way past Bobrovsky.
