NHL Playoffs 2014: Pittsburgh Penguins take 1-0 lead on Craig Adams goal (GIF)

The Pittsburgh Penguins came back from a two goal deficit in Game 3 against the Columbus Blue Jackets and were looking to get out to a lead in Game 4. While it took them a little while — like maybe five minutes — the Pens are now out to a huge lead over the Blue Jackets and it all started thanks to Craig Adams’ goal in the first period.

The flood gates opened thanks to this shot by Adams that completely beat Blue Jackets netminder Sergei Bobrovsky.


That goal by Adams was followed rather quickly by two others to make it an early 3-0 lead for Pittsburgh. This comes on the heels of their Game3 win in which they achieved a similar feat to win the game 4-3. Given how topsy-turvy this series has been, even though it’s 3-0 in the first, no lead appears to be safe.
