National surveys show consumers’ mood is brightening, and it’s not just holiday cheer. The more positive outlook has a lot to do with the steep drop in gasoline prices since last summer. 2015 holds the promise of more price relief not only at the gas pump but also at grocery stores.
Jackets Blow Two Goal Lead, Fall In Game Three
A two-goal lead has been a dangerous thing in the Pittsburgh Penguins’ Stanley Cup first-round series against the Columbus Blue Jackets. For the third time in as many games, the winning team has stormed back from a two-goal deficit.
The Jackets led 3-1 until Brandon Sutter, Lee Stempniak and Jussi Jokinen scored during a 2:13 span early in the third period to lead the Pens to a 4-3 triumph at Columbus. Stempniak and Maata tallied 63 seconds apart to put the Penguins ahead with 11:54 remaining.
Goals by Boone Jenner and Jack Johnson gave the Blue Jackets a 2-0 lead just 3:18 into the game, but Columbus fired just 17 shots the rest of the way as the Pens grabbed a 2-1 series lead.
Game 4 is Wednesday in Columbus.
