Jussi Jokinen scored the go-ahead goal in the third period and the Pittsburgh Penguins topped the Columbus Blue Jackets 3-1 on Saturday night to take a 3-2 lead in their Eastern Conference playoff series.
It hasn't been easy for the Penguins, a team considered by many a Stanley Cup contender. Columbus, which began the series searching for its first playoff win in franchise history, twice rallied to stun the heavily favored Penguins.
Boone Jenner scored the lone goal for Columbus, which played its first Game 5 in franchise history.
