NHL on NBCSN: Bjugstad, McCann filling much-needed roles for Penguins

Source | 5 days ago.

Pittsburgh Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford has had to make a lot of trades over the past two years (probably more than he has wanted to make), and not all of them have worked out as planned. Two of the biggest moves involved Derick Brassard in an effort to address some of the depth the team lost following its Stanley Cup win in 2017. The first of those trades came just before the 2018 trade deadline when the Penguins, Ottawa Senators, and Vegas Golden Knights completed a massive and convoluted three-team trade to send Brassard to Pittsburgh, seemingly giving them the third-line center they needed to make another run at the Stanley Cup.

Penguins' Murray offers up two candidates for save of the year

There's nothing a goalie can do that is more spectacular than a desperation paddle save. The odds of saving a shot with a few inches of composite material are very low, so when they happen, they're something to marvel at. It was Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Matt Murray's paddle on Saturday night in a pivotal game against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Blue Jackets employee hilariously reacts to cannon firing

Since being acquired by the Columbus Blue Jackets back in 2007, the replica WWII cannon inside the walls of Nationwide Arena has become quite the attraction. Fired whenever the team takes to the ice at the start of the game, scores or wins, it's a unique aspect of attending games in Ohio and fits nicely with the organization's Civil War theme. FOX Sports Ohio always has a camera on the cannon during broadcasts that they cut to when it goes off.

Pens head to Columbus in search of season sweep

The Pittsburgh Penguins can sweep the four-game season series Saturday when they visit the Columbus Blue Jackets. In fact, the Penguins have won eight in a row against the Blue Jackets and are 9-0-1 in the teams' past 10 meetings after they won the front half of home-and-home series Thursday 3-0. Pittsburgh moved four points ahead of Columbus with that win as both teams try to ensure a postseason appearance.

Blue Jackets go back to Bobrovsky for huge game against Penguins

Source | 8 days ago.

But the announcement that the Columbus Blue Jackets are starting Sergei Bobrovsky against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday is a pretty big deal because when these two teams met just two nights ago in Pittsburgh, the Blue Jackets not only opted to not start their top goalie, they did not even dress him as the backup. He was not an option at all for what was to that point the biggest game of the season. It was such an eye-opening move because Bobrovsky has struggled horribly against the Penguins over the past couple of years, and the decision to go with backup Joonas Korpisalo seemed to indicate that maybe the team didn't have faith in their starter in this particular matchup.

Columbus' Boone Jenner was sent to the penalty box for slashing just 20 seconds into Saturday night's game, giving Pittsburgh an early power-play chance and sucking some of the energy out of a sold-out Nationwide Arena. But the Blue Jackets killed the penalty, and Jenner emerged from the box and scored 11 seconds later to reset the tone of a game they desperately needed to win to stay in the crowded mix for a wildcard playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Cam Atkinson scored twice and Oliver Bjorkstand got the back-breaker in the third period as Columbus snapped an eight-game losing streak against the Penguins with a 4-1 victory Saturday night.
