Fleury makes late start, Penguins rush by Blue Jackets 3-1

Goalie Matt Murray a late scratch for Penguins' playoff opener

"You need so many things to go right", Crosby said of capturing the Cup any year, much less twice in a row. We just keep going. We've had a good, singular mindset here so far. "But that doesn't affect what we're trying to do".

Though Fleury starting isn't exactly the best-case scenario for the Penguins, one has to imagine it's a massive relief that it's even a scenario at all. The Penguins barely noticed, let alone retaliated.

A laser light show and a moment of silence for late Steelers chairman Dan Rooney set the stage for an electric atmosphere at PPG Paints Arena, but the opening two minutes of activity failed to produce a shot on goal for either team.

India, Australia to boost collaboration in skill development
After the talks, PM Modi said, "Our bilateral mechanisms on counter-terrorism and transnational crimes are functioning well". Mr Turnbull has also invited India's team to train in Australia before the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.

Columbus coach John Tortorella fueled that notion. The Penguins responded by blocking 23. He told police he'd drive himself to the hospital when the game was over, which he did at 10:17 p.m. that night.

"There's a sense of desperation in everything that we do in the playoffs", Cole said. "They're pretty fast and they have a lot of skill". But still, we hope he got that screwdriver-inflicted gash checked out. "If the blocked shots happen, that's great". Behind those goals, along with Marc-Andre Fleury's strong goaltending - who stopped 39 of 40 shots - the Penguins took the game.

Game 3 is Sunday night in Columbus. Fleury has been terrific in two games, stopping 70 of 72.

When Dean Brown asked if he was planning to scratch any veterans, Boucher responded by saying, "Most of our players are veterans". It was a hard lesson to learn, but head coach Guy Boucher hopes it will be a lasting one for the Ottawa Senators.

The Pittsburgh Penguins didn't even make it onto the ice for the puck drop in Game 1 before the injury bug that has hurt the team all season struck once again. Pittsburgh Penguins' Sidney Crosby (87) collides with Columbus Blue Jackets' Scott Hartnell (43) during the first period of Game 1 of an NHL first-round hockey playoff series in Pittsburgh, Wednesday, April 12, 2017. Knowing he can have an experience fall back plan in Fleury must be a relief. Cam Atkinson leads Columbus with 35 goals, Nick Foligno has 25 assists and Brandon Saad has 210 shots on goal. Guentzel crashed the crease to pivot the puck from Sheary over to Crosby for the finish.

Two-and-a-half minutes later, Kessel netted a power-play goal, which gave the Penguins a 2-0 advantage over the Blue Jackets.

Murray out started Fleury 49-38 in the regular season and a posted a 2.41 goals against average and.923 save percentage to Fleury's 3/02 GAA and.909 save percentage. The Penguins are 4-0 in their last 4 Conference Quarterfinals games, 50-20 in their last 70 games playing on 1 days rest and 57-18 in their last 75 home games.

Wikileaks Is a 'Hostile Intelligence Service' Aided by Russia — CIA Director
Pompeo's speech on Thursday follows a series of damaging leaks of highly sensitive CIA and National Security Agency material. During his presidential campaign, Trump repeatedly cited WikiLeaks' release of stolen emails.

That time arrived Wednesday night against Columbus. Sullivan did not offer a timetable for a return for the 22-year-old Murray. "You start the series on the road".
