Pittsburgh blocked 23 shots before they even got to Fleury.
Brandon Saad scored the Blue Jackets' lone goal and Sergei Bobrovsky turned back 28 shots. From Matt Calvert breaking his stick over Tom Kuhnhackl and dropping him in the last half-minute of regulation, to Scott Harrington and Boone Jenner going after Evgeni Malkin at the end of the game, and now the Columbus-Dispatch giving out crying Crosby masks for Game 3, the Blue Jackets-Penguins series is hitting another level.
The Montreal Canadiens did not start their first-round Stanley Cup playoff series on a high note, as they were blanked 2-0 by the New York Rangers at the Bell Centre on Wednesday.
Radulov jammed the puck in from the edge of the crease after a feed from Max Pacioretty. That represents how much the Rangers have been outscored during their five-game home playoff losing streak, which began with Game 2 of the 2015 Eastern Conference final against Tampa Bay.
Game 3 is Sunday night in NY.
The score would stay that way deep into the first overtime period, when Radulov was able to put the puck past Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist in a scramble in front of the net to send the series back to NY tied 1-1. Tomas Plekanec redirected Radulov's feed past goalie Henrik Lundqvist to force overtime. The Canadiens jumped out to a 2-1 lead in the first period thanks to goals from Jeff Petry and Paul Byron.
The Blues have opened their playoff schedule with back-to-back road wins, earning a 2-1 win at Minnesota on Jaden Schwartz's goal with 2:27 remaining.

After the shock and having emptied the tank defending, there was little left to generate enough chances against Price in overtime: eight shots on goal for the Rangers as opposed to 13 for the Habs.
The Rangers are saying all the right things, no other feeling they can convey other than looking at this as a clean slate and a positive that they're in their own building with a chance to take the lead in the series.
"We had stretches where they came really hard and made it tough for us", said goaltender Henrik Lundqvist, who stopped 54 shots - a personal-best for a post-season game.
For a team that couldn't buy a goal in a 2-0 loss in the series opener, finally getting some offence was huge. After Mats Zuccarello gave the Rangers the lead, Julien tightened his bench, with the fourth line seeing significantly reduced ice time.
