The Pittsburgh Penguins virtually owned the ice for the first  two periods of their game against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Sunday night.  Evgeni Malkin  got his first goal of the series @ 10:21 of the 1st period.  Brandon Sutter tallied 34 seconds into the second and Malkin added 2 more … for his hat trick. The Pens were ahead 4-0  at the end of 2nd period. Although Sidney Crosby has yet to score in the series he did get an assist on Evgeni’s second goal. It is not to say that Sidney does not do his part, as he partners very well with Malkin and appears to leave the scoring to him. It seemed as though Pittsburgh had the game sewn up by the end of the 2nd, but the Blue Jackets stormed back and Fedor Tyutin scored a short handed  @1021 of the third. Artem  Anisimov scored on a power play  and Nick Foligno put the Blues within one. It was all the Jackets in the third and … who knows … if only the clock beat them. The Columbus fans were gracious in that they gave their team a standing ovation for their effort. Just when you think you’ve seen the most nail-biting ending to a game … another cliff hanger appears!    Well … all four of my teams have made it to the second round. Perhaps I am some sort of a Guru!
