Jackets Blow Lead, Drop Playoff Opener Against Pittsburgh
The Columbus Blue Jacketsâ€™ return to the playoffs didnâ€™t go as the team hoped.
The team at one point was ahead 3-1, but let Pittsburgh chip away and the Penguins took the lead for good with 8:18 left in the final period on a goal by Brandon Sutter.
“They did a good job tracking and putting us in positions, but we didn’t do a good enough job managing the puck and keeping the puck moving forward,” said head coach Todd Richards after the game.
Game two of the series is Saturday night in Pittsburgh, with games three and four in Columbus on Monday and Wednesday.
