Fedor Tyutin (undisclosed) wasn't on the ice for Columbus' optional Tuesday morning skate.

Tyutin probably won't play in Game 4 on Wednesday. He also missed Monday's contest due to the ailment.
Apr 22 - 2:39 PM

Jack Johnson tied an NHL record for defensemen by scoring a goal in three straight contests to start the playoffs.

Johnson is already approaching his regular season goal total of five in 82 games. He'll slow down of course, but he's been one of the Blue Jackets' top offensive contributors so far.
Apr 22 - 12:09 PM

Cam Atkinson found the back of the net in Game 3 of Columbus' first round series against Pittsburgh.

It was Atkinson's first career playoff goal. He broke out in the regular season with 21 goals and 40 points in 79 games.
Apr 22 - 9:44 AM

Brandon Dubinsky had two assists in Columbus' 4-3 loss on Monday.

That gives Dubinsky four points in three playoff games in 2014. He had 16 goals and 50 points in 76 contests this season.
Apr 22 - 9:42 AM

Columbus outhit Pittsburgh 65-32 in Game 3 on Monday.

Blake Comeau led the attack for the Blue Jackets with eight hits in the contest. It didn't end up turning the tide in this match as Pittsburgh still won 4-3, but Penguins coach Dan Bylsma acknowledged the disparity. "I don't want to say it's not a concern," Bylsma said. "They're a physical group and they come after you. But tonight I feel like we had the puck an awful lot in the offensive zone. If that's them coming after us and hitting us there, so be it."
Apr 22 - 9:40 AM

Boone Jenner scored his first career playoff goal on Monday.

Jenner is now on a five-game point streak that dates back to the regular season. The 20-year-old rookie has three points in three postseason contests.
Apr 22 - 9:37 AM

The Columbus Blue Jackets coughed up a 3-1 lead in the span of 2:13 minutes on Monday.

The Penguins scored three goals in that 2:13-minute span early in the third period en route to a 4-3 victory. Oddly enough, in all three games of this series, the team that has taken a 3-1 lead has gone on to lose the contest. "You don't want to have a 3-1 lead," Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards joked. Regardless of the trend, this loss was particularly brutal for Columbus. The team had a real opportunity to put the pressure on Pittsburgh after tying the series in Game 2. Instead, the Penguins have regained home ice advantage and the series lead.
Apr 22 - 9:35 AM

Jack Johnson scored his third goal of the postseason Monday, however the Blue Jackets dropped a 4-3 decision to Pittsburgh in Game 3 of their opening round playoff series.

The maligned blueliner has been a bright spot for the Jackets this postseason by scoring a goal in each of the team's three playoff contests. Cam Atkinson and Boone Jenner also scored for Columbus in the defeat, which dropped them into a 2-1 series hole.
Apr 21 - 9:59 PM

Sergei Bobrovsky mishandled a golden opportunity for the Blue Jackets to take a 2-1 lead as they dropped a 4-3 decision to Pittsburgh in Game 3 of their opening round playoff series.

Bobrovsky looked sharp for the better part of two periods on this night, but stumbled down the stretch. Despite blocking 37 of 41 shots in the game, he allowed all four goals on the Penguins' final 16 shots. He'll get a chance to redeem himself in Game 4 of the series Wednesday.
Apr 21 - 9:56 PM

Fedor Tyutin (undisclosed) is unlikely to play in Game 3 Monday.

Tyutin was injured during the first period on Saturday and never returned. Look for either Nick Schultz or Dalton Prout to take his place in the lineup.
Apr 21 - 7:01 AM

Brandon Dubinsky has 17 hits in the first two games of the series against Pittsburgh.

Dubinsky has played mostly against Sidney Crosby and the matchup will be easier in Games 3 and 4 as the Blue Jackets will have the last change. Coach Todd Richards could not play Dubinsky all the time against Sid the Kid as there were too many penalties and he could not manage it. "I've seen a more-focused Dubinsky," Richards said. "He's taken it to another level. This is the big stage. The big players want to be on the big stage. You want your opportunities in the big moments, and there are plenty of those this time of year."
Apr 21 - 6:59 AM

Nick Foligno (knee) has been cleared to play in Game 3.

Foligno was cleared after Game 2 on Saturday and will likely play alongside R.J. Umberger and Artem Anisimov as the series against the Penguins moves to Columbus Monday. He had 18 goals, 39 points and 210 hits this season so his presence in the lineup will provide a boost to the Blue Jackets.
Apr 21 - 6:56 AM

Nick Foligno (knee) skated after practice on Saturday and could be good to go for Game 3.

Foligno has been out of action since April 3 and the Blue Jackets miss his presence as he had 18 goals, 39 points, 96 penalty minutes and 210 hits this season in 70 games.
Apr 20 - 10:30 AM

R.J. Umberger replaced Jared Boll in the Columbus lineup on Saturday.

Umberger had been out with an upper body injury as he missed Game 1. Umberger was minus-one with nary a point in 15:39 minutes of action on Saturday.
Apr 20 - 10:23 AM

Ryan Johansen picked up his first two points in his playoff career on Saturday.

Johansen had a goal and an assist as he continued his outstanding play that started during the regular season. The 21-year-old ended the regular season with 33 goals and 63 points. The Penguins are going to have to find a way to shut him down or the Blue Jackets will continue to give them fits in the first round of the playoffs. The series is tied at one apiece with the teams headed to Columbus for Games 3 and 4.
