NHL Playoffs 2014: Pittsburgh Penguins score two goals in under one minute (GIF)


The Pittsburgh Penguins have made a couple of miraculous comebacks in their two wins this series against the Columbus Blue Jackets and they’re trying to make sure that the third win is a comfortable one. Craig Adams got the Pens rolling early with a shorthanded goal but the flood gates were only just opening.

Both Chris Kunitz and James Neal scored goals within a minute of each other to make it an early 3-0 lead for Pittsburgh.

We saw it at the end go Game 3 and it’s happening again in Game 4 — the Pens score in bunches. Columbus may still come back, as this series has been nothing if not topsy-turvy as it’s been demonstrated before a few times that no lead on either side is safe.
