Lightning's Kucherov suspended 1 game for boarding Blue Jackets' Nutivaara

Lightning's Kucherov suspended 1 game for boarding Blue Jackets' Nutivaara

The Lightning matched the NHL's record for regular-season wins (62) but have been one of the biggest disappointments early in the playoffs, losing their first two games to the Blue Jackets, who snuck in with the Eastern Conference's final wild-card spot.

The Blue Jackets can close out the series against the Presidents' Trophy-winning club in Game 4 in Columbus on Tuesday. "We haven't. So now we have some adversity and teams face it all the time and they face it in little pieces and this is a five-alarm fire", said Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper.

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Jordan Eberle scored for the third straight game, Robin Lehner stopped 25 shots and NY stunned Pittsburgh to take a 3-0 lead in its best-of-seven, first-round playoffs series.

Getting Tampa Bay at this low of a price is tempting considering that the Lightning won 30 games on the road in the regular season and now have their backs against the wall heading on the road for game three.

Duchene assisted on both of Columbus' goals during the first period and put the Blue Jackets ahead 3-0 on the power play when the center scored on the rebound at 1:28 of the second after Vasilevskiy had stopped his tip-in try.

Werenski made it 2-0 from the blue line after Duchene won a faceoff during a power play at 11:44 of the first.

Blue Jackets captain Nick Foligno: "The way we're playing is the way you need to play to win hockey games, throughout the group. So, even when we were down 3-0, I don't think we got away as far as how we have to play".

The Jets, who lost the first two games of the series on their home ice, pulled to within 2-1 in the best-of-seven Stanley Cup playoffs series.

Brock Nelson added his second goal of the playoffs and Leo Komarov scored the first postseason goal of his career for the Islanders, who have pushed the star-laden Penguins to the brink of elimination. The Lightning's three shots in the first period were the fewest allowed in a period by the Blue Jackets in a home playoff game.

Bobrovsky stopped a pair of quality chances late in the last five minutes before Atkinson scored an empty-netter with one minute left to seal the win. Kevin Hayes, Brandon Tanev and Dustin Byfuglien also scored, and Connor Hellebuyck made 25 saves.

Game 4 of the best-of-seven series is Tuesday night in St. Louis.

In Pittsburgh, Jordan Eberle scored for the third straight game, Robin Lehner stopped 25 shots and NY stunned the Penguins to take a 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference quarterfinal.
