Blue Jackets force Games 5, 6 in playoffs

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Two-goal leads weren't safe in the first three games of the NHL's opening-round series between Pittsburgh and Columbus, so the Penguins decided to take a three-goal lead in game 4 on Wednesday. That didn't work, either.

The Blue Jackets trailed 3-0 midway through the first period before storming back for a 4-3 overtime win over the Pens.

Boone Jenner and Ryan Johansen scored power-play goals to get the Jackets within 3-2 before Brandon Dubinsky notched the equalizer with just 24 seconds left in regulation. Nick Foligno ended it at 2:49 of OT to even the series at two games apiece.

The series returns to Pittsburgh for Game 5 on Saturday.  Game 6 will be at Nationwide Arena on Monday.
