The Blue Jackets, on the other hand, will be trying to shake their own playoff demons. "You've got the chance to be the overtime hero, tight checking and they're fun". (I recommend this technique for the inevitable overtime in Game 4.) Things were apparently a little less tense in the Capitals' locker room. Josh Morrissey might be looking at a suspension for his cross-check to the neck of Eric Staal, while Wild coach Bruce Boudreau argued that the non-call on that play cost the Wild the game.

A classic "dirty" overtime goal, and this could be just the break the Caps needed to turn things around in the series after two frustrating losses at home.

For a change, it took more than one extra session to decide Tuesday's game.

The Blue Jackets now hold a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series with Game 4 scheduled for Thursday night in Ohio. He fits in well with the Blue Jackets system, especially with Boone Jenner, and will likely have a much smaller contract. And while the Blue Jackets' blueline has undoubtedly gotten better in front of Bobrovsky, the Pittsburgh Penguins were able to rattle the netminder enough last post-season that he only managed a SP better than.900 in one of five games. Was he the best player on the ice? No. The Blue Jackets netminder hasn't necessarily stolen the show and he's been far from infallible, allowing 10 goals on 133 shots through the first three games of the series.

The contract stipulated that he would have to pay a $1 million penalty if he talked about the rumor or the deal to remain quiet. The Enquirer never ran his story however, as the tabloid says it could not verify the authenticity of his claim.

Kovalchuk's contract will likely be the deal-breaker as he'll probably want a two or three year deal around $3-4M, which would be a steal for a player of his skill level if he had already proven he can still produce at the National Hockey League level. Grubauer, who outplayed Holtby down the stretch in the regular season, allowed four goals in each game.

"Obviously our decision to go with [Brugauer] was just the numbers he's put up over the last while", Trotz said. "Coming in here to Columbus, he's had a lot of games here and he feels pretty comfortable".

Braden Holtby got his first start of the series in goal for the Capitals after Philipp Grubauer's strong late-season play earned him the start for Games 1 and 2.

Sergei Bobrovsky, who made a combined 81 saves on 88 shots in the first two games, will start for Columbus.
