Blue Jackets take 3-0 series lead over Lightning

Columbus Blue Jackes v Tampa Bay Lightning- Game One

Matt Duchene, who struggled offensively following a late-season trade from Ottawa, led the Columbus attack on Friday with a goal and three assists.

Columbus also got goals from Cam Atkinson, Zach Werenski, Riley Nash and Artemi Panarin. "We're going to need him, because there's going to be another push in Game 4". "So, even when we were down 3-0, I don't think we got away as far as how we have to play".

The Tampa Bay Lightning are already down 2-0 in their first round playoff series, and their star player could be facing discipline from the league. Everyone keeps expecting the Blue Jackets (+120) to see the bottom drop out, but it hasn't happened in two games. Plus, they've been a team that has struggled to win at home.

Game 4 is Tuesday, where Columbus can finish off its first playoff series with a potential sweep over the Lightning.

The NHL's leading scorer with 128 points, Kucherov was suspended one game on Saturday for a hard hit on Markus Nutivaara late in Friday's 5-1 home loss.

Ondrej Palat finally got the Lightning's first goal of the game in the third period. "We respect the team and know how good they are, but we're just going about our business", said Columbus coach John Tortorella, who led the Lightning to their lone Stanley Cup championship in 2004.

Cooper says he hopes Hedman can play. Columbus has scored four power-play goals in the series.

Brock Nelson added his second goal of the playoffs, Leo Komarov scored the first postseason goal of his career and Anders Lee also scored for NY, which has pushed the star-laden Penguins to the brink of elimination.

The Blue Jackets were 2-8 at home in three previous postseason appearances.

Sergei Bobrovsky made 30 saves including 16 in the third period as Tampa pushed to tie the game.

After a scoreless first period, the Blue Jackets struck 1:44 into the second when Duchene was in the right place to score off a rebounded.

It didn't last. Eberle tied it 28 seconds later and Nelson's wrist shot put NY in front to stay just 1:02 after Eberle's third playoff goal in as many games.@Sports roundup body:Komarov's third-period goal gave the Islanders more than enough breathing room, and Anders Lee put the Penguins away with an empty-net goal with 1:28 remaining.

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

Brandon Tanev and Dustin Byfuglien also scored for the Jets, who got 26 saves from Connor Hellebuyck.
