Pens win 4-3 after going down 3-1 early. Goals by Jokinen, Bennett, Niskanen, and Sutter with the game winner. Assists came from Malkin and Maatta, Niskanen and Martin, Malkin and Crosby, Bennett and Martin. Sutter has been playing well down the stretch and Maatta, a 19 year old rookie defenseman, has just been phenomenal all season. He'll get some consideration for rookie of the year but the Av's MacKinnon should get the Calder Trophy.
The Pens took some needless penalties and gave up a shorthanded goal. The Blue Jackets played like the belong in the postseason. The Pen's power play went 2 for 3.
