The Blue Jackets then tied it on a power-play goal from Vanek 1:31 into the third period.

The Blue Jackets defeated the Washington Capitals 4-3 in overtime in Game 1, overcoming multiple deficits along the way. Blue Jackets center Nick Foligno also left the game in the third period when hit in the face by a slapshot from Capitals. The Blue Jackets ranked 25th on the power play this season - and 30th on the road. The CBJ can't expect to shutout Ovi, but if they can limit him to three goals or less in the series that would give the Jackets a real chance at winning this series. But, we lost a player early in the game. That's a critical moment.

How They Lose: While Columbus gets off to a good start, it fades in games and hasn't had very successful third periods in general. Maybe pass up on that hit. "We're trying to get that out of the game".

About five minutes into the second period, Columbus was granted a lifeline.

And another interesting nugget: the Jackets are now 3-1 in overtime of playoff games, but 1-11 in games that end in regulation. We're just doing it too often.

"He made a great play on the tying goal (by Jones) and scores a goal that a lot of people can't score in this league (in overtime)", Tortorella said. "There are always going to be bad penalties called because the game is so fast; but the referees do their best, so you just play the game, concentrate on playing".

Panarin, who didn't address the media after the game, beat Capitals defenseman Dmitry Orlov up the left wing wall on the rush after Orlov was trapped on the ice after a long shift, and swiftly beat Capitals goaltender Philipp Grubauer to the glove side with seemingly not much of an angle to do so.

Panarin finished with one goal and two assists, and Thomas Vanek added one goal and one assist.

I am taking the Capitals in game two.

Killorn's shot over the glove of goalie Kevin Kincaid's glove restored a two-goal lead before Kucherov, who led the Lightning with 100 points this season, ensured there would be no comeback. Unless Washington can find a way to slow him down, Panarin may well carry the Columbus offense to another victory in Game 2 on Sunday.

"I looked at it, and I'm going to let the league look at it", he said. "I don't think you can equate situations from the regular season with these games". "We'll sit down and re-evaluate all the goals, evaluate our team and where we're at and go from there". Bobrovsky bounced back from allowing a soft goal to Kuznetsov and stopped 10 of the other 11 shots he faced on the penalty kill. Ian Cole and Pierre-Luc Dubois got assists on the play.

NOTES: Trotz said Kempny, whose head hit the glass on Anderson's hit from behind, would be re-evaluated Friday. Wingels left the game and did not return. Foligno was back in the lineup after missing the past six games with injury, and Columbus D Markus Nutivaara returned after missing the final three of the regular season.

Kuznetsov left no doubt on his second goal in 29 seconds, firing a laser from the left faceoff circle past his fellow countryman at 18:21 with Washington still on the power play. Washington went to overtime for the seventh time in its past 14 playoff games.

On Friday, Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen called the play "a risky hit" by Wilson and termed Wennberg's injury as "upper body".
