NHL roundup: Columbus evens series with Pittsburgh

– Brandon Dubinsky scored with 22.5 seconds left in regulation to force overtime and Nick Foligno’s wrist shot just inside the blue line 2:49 into the extra session gave Columbus a 4-3 victory over Pittsburgh.

The Blue Jackets overcame a 3-0 deficit for their first home playoff victory in the franchise’s 13 seasons, sending the series back to Pittsburgh for Game 5 on Saturday night tied at 2.

Craig Adams, Chris Kunitz, James Neal scored in a span of 5:01 of the first period to stake the Penguins to a 3-0 lead. But Ryan Johansen and Dubinsky each had a goal and an assist, and Boone Jenner also scored for Columbus.

It was the fourth time in the series that the team that scored first – and also went on to hold a 3-1 lead – lost.

STARS 4, DUCKS 2: In Dallas, Cody Eakin and Alex Goligoski scored on Dallas’ first two shots in the third period and the Stars evened the best-of-seven series at 2.

Even without captain Ryan Getzlaf, a surprise late scratch with an upper-body injury, and healthy scratch Teemu Selane, the Ducks jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first period.

Game 5 is Friday night in Anaheim, and Game 6 is Sunday in Dallas.
