Two-goal leads weren’t safe in the first three games of the NHL’s opening-round series between Pittsburgh and Columbus, so the Penguins decided to take a three-goal lead in Game 4 on Wednesday. T

That didn’t work, either.

The Blue Jackets trailed 3-0 midway through the first period before storming back for a 4-3 overtime win over the Pens. Boone Jenner and Ryan Johansen scored power-play goals to get the Jackets within 3-2 before Brandon Dubinsky notched the equalizer with just 24 seconds left in regulation. Nick Foligno ended it at 2:49 of OT to even the series at two games apiece.

Craig Adams, Chris Kunitz and James Neal scored in the first 11:10 for the Penguins, but Sidney Crosby failed to record a point while posting a -2.

The series returns to Pittsburgh for Game 5 on Saturday. Game 6 is Monday in Columbus.
