WATCH LIVE: Pittsburgh Penguins at Columbus Blue Jackets (Game 3)

The Pittsburgh Penguins seemed well on their way to taking a 2-0 series lead on Saturday when Columbus turned the tables.

With the Penguins winning 3-1 midway through the second period, they had four forwards on the ice during a power play and Blue Jackets forward Matt Calvert took advantage of the situation by scoring a shorthanded goal.

That sparked the Blue Jackets, who went on to record their franchise’s first playoff victory. With the series tied, Pittsburgh remains the heavy favorite, but questions about the team’s approach to the postseason have been raised.

After years of coming up short in the playoffs, the criticisms about the Penguins will only intensify if they lose again tonight.
