Linesman Barton leaves Jackets-Capitals game with injury”

The Columbus Blue Jackets return home to Nationwide Arena looking for a third straight win in the first round of their National Hockey League playoff series with the Washington Capitals. The game-winner was reviewed for offside, but the call was upheld.

Right winger Josh Anderson started the barrage when he controlled the puck along the far boards and slipped a cross-ice pass to left winger Matt Calvert at center ice.

Calvert was just onside when Josh Anderson brought the puck into the zone. The Blue Jackets will have two straight home games starting on Tuesday, Apr 17. The Blue Jackets stunned the Metropolitan Division-champion Capitals with back-to-back overtime wins.

The two-time Vezina Trophy-winning goaltender continued his playoff reputation rehab tour by keeping his team in the game.

Cam Atkinson scored twice, Anderson had a goal at even strength and Zack Werenski added one on the power play for the Blue Jackets, who have the odds on their side.

The Capitals were highly favored to win the series, despite their recent playoff troubles.

Golden Knights 3, Kings 2: James Neal scored the tiebreaking goal with 5:37 to play, and Vegas rallied from a third-period deficit to move to the brink of the expansion franchise's first playoff series victory with a victory over Los Angeles. John Carlson and Nicklas Backstrom gave Washington two assists each while Philipp Grubauer gave up four goals on 22 shots before Braden Holtby stopped 7-8 shots in relief.

Over is 5-0 in Capitals last 5 overall and Capitals are 5-0 in their last 5 road games and Capitals are 4-0 in their last 4 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of greater than.600.

Bobrovsky did everything he could to protect that lead over the final 20 minutes of regulation, but was eventually beaten by T.J. Oshie with 3:35 left to play.

Bobrovsky also sprawled out in the third to keep this puck from trickling over the line, one of the many highlights he produced on Sunday.

Wild 6, Jets 2: Mikael Granlund and Zach Parise scored power-play goals in the first period for the spark Minnesota was missing on the road, and the Wild used a four-goal second period to roar back against Winnipeg in the Western Conference series. Surprisingly, he wasn't mentioned in the three stars of the game. They will have two games at home, giving them the chance to get the series sweep on their home ice.
