PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Penguins say they have to ramp up the intensity as their first round playoff series against Columbus heads to Game 5 on Saturday night.
The Blue Jackets tied the series at two games each with a 4-3 overtime victory on Wednesday night. Columbus rallied from a three-goal deficit, marking the fourth straight game a team came back from at least two goals down to win.
Pittsburgh coach Dan Bylsma called out his team after the loss, saying he needs to see the club play at a higher level.
Star center Sidney Crosby agreed. The NHL’s leading scorer during the regular season has yet to score a goal in the playoffs. Crosby says he would like to start producing more scoring chances, and the goals will likely follow.
