Blue Jackets Vs. Penguins: Malkin Scores Again To Make Score 1-1

After sleepwalking through much of the first two periods of the game, the Pittsburgh Penguins finally had a breakthrough from a familiar source, as Evgeni Malkin's 37th goal of the season tied the game 1-1.

The Penguins trailed 1-0 after Rick Nash, who is most likely playing in his last game as a member of the Blue Jackets, scored a shorthanded goal at the 9:49 mark of the period.

After the first period did not see a single power play opportunity for either team, the Blue Jackets went 0-for-3 with a man advantage in the third, while the Penguins went 1-for-2.

The equalizing tally came with just 48 seconds remaining in the period, as Malkin was able to beat Sanford with a pass from Kunitz on a Columbus turnover.

The Penguins hold a 26-15 advantage in shots.
