Pens Blow Three Goal Lead, Lose In Columbus
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Brandon Dubinsky scored with 22.5 seconds left in regulation to force overtime and Nick Foligno's wrist shot just inside the blue line 2:49 into the extra session gave the Columbus Blue Jackets a 4-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday night. The Blue Jackets overcame a 3-0 deficit for their first home playoff victory in the franchise's 13 seasons, sending the series back to Pittsburgh for Game 5 on Saturday night tied 2-2. Craig Adams, Chris Kunitz, James Neal scored in a span of 5:01 of the first period to stake the Penguins to a 3-0 lead. But Ryan Johansen and Dubinsky each had a goal and an assist and Boone Jenner also scored for Columbus, making only its second postseason trip.

Cooke Crackdown
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The NHL has cracked down hard on Matt Cooke, suspending the Minnesota Wild left wing for seven games for his knee-to-knee hit that injured Colorado Avalanche defenseman Tyson Barrie on Monday. If the term of the ban isn't finished during the playoffs, Cooke must complete it at the beginning of the next regular season. This is Cooke's sixth career suspension for various player safety violations, bringing his total of games banned to 34, including playoffs.

Reds Top Pirates
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Alfredo Simon pitched into the seventh inning despite erratic control, Jay Bruce drove in a run for a fifth consecutive game and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-2 Wednesday night. Simon (3-1) worked 6 2-3 innings and allowed two runs on four hits and five walks while striking out four. Simon has pitched at least six innings in each of his four starts this season as a replacement for the injured Mat Latos. Simon pitched exclusively in relief the previous two years. Bruce had two hits and knocked in the final run of the decisive three-run fifth inning against Charlie Morton (0-3) that gave the Reds a 4-2 lead. Billy Hamilton also had two hits for Cincinnati, which has won seven of 10 games since a 3-7 start. Jonathan Broxton pitched a scoreless ninth inning, despite allowing two hits, for his third save.
