The Pittsburgh Penguins host the Columbus Blue Jackets at the Consol Energy Centre in game five.

Columbus picked up their first ever home win in the postseason with a 4-3 overtime decision versus Pittsburgh. The win couldn't have come at a better time with the Penguins threatening to take a 3-1 series lead after jumping out to a 3-1 lead after 20 minutes before the Blue Jackets chipped away and eventually tied it up with a mere 24 ticks remaining in regulation when Marc-Andre Fleury misplayed a puck behind his net.

Things began nicely for Pittsburgh who received first period goals from Chris Kunitz, James Neal and Craig Adams. Fleury faced a lot of rubber with a 42 save performance that was overshadowed by his late miscue. Nick Foligno won it in the extra session with his goal at the 2:49 mark that was made possible by Brandon Dubinsky's tally in the final half minute off a feed from Ryan Johansen. Johansen also scored with Boone Jenner supplying the other goal to make Sergei Bobrovsky's 22 stops hold up.

This was a possible series changing win for the Blue Jackets and a bitter defeat for the Penguins who had a 3-1 series lead staring them right in the face. Pittsburgh has the veterans to overcome such a disappointment and are great at home but do appear vulnerable at times. I'll be looking hard at this one as I wait for a line but I'm leaning over right now...
