Pens Blow Two-Goal Lead, Lose Game Two
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Matt Calvert banged home a rebound 1:10 into the second overtime and the Columbus Blue Jackets earned the first playoff victory in franchise history with a 4-3 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday night. Pittsburgh's Marc-Andre Fleury stuffed the initial shot by Cam Atkinson but Calvert stood all alone at the left post and wristed a shot into the open net to even the Eastern Conference quarterfinals at one game each. Game 3 is Monday in Columbus. Jack Johnson tied the game with 6:01 left in regulation for the Blue Jackets. Ryan Johansen also scored the first playoff goal of his career for Columbus. Sergei Bobrovsky overcame a shaky start to finish with 39 saves.

Blues Rally Late, Beat Blackhawks in OT
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Defenseman Barret Jackman scored on a drive through traffic, giving the St. Louis Blues their second straight 4-3 overtime victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday for a 2-0 series lead against the defending Stanley Cup champions. St. Louis rallied after Chicago defenseman Brent Seabrook received a five-minute major and game misconduct penalty for a vicious elbow to the head on Blues captain David Backes, who had to be helped off the ice, went straight to the locker room and did not return for overtime. Vladimir Tarasenko forced overtime with his second goal of the series, beating Corey Crawford with a wrist shot that banged off the right post and in with 6.4 seconds to go. Kevin Shattenkirk had a goal and two assists for the Blues.

Braun Leads Brewers over Pirates
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Ryan Braun hit two homers, including a two-run shot with two outs in the ninth inning that sent the Milwaukee Brewers over the Pittsburgh Pirates 8-7 Saturday night. Braun has five home runs this season after being suspended for the final 65 games last year in the Biogenesis drug scandal. The other three homers came in one game on April 8 at Philadelphia. The go-ahead drive came off Pirates closer Jason Grilli (0-1), his second blown save in six opportunities. Jean Segura's two-out single kept the inning going for Braun, who had three hits and three RBIs. Jonathan Lucroy hit three doubles and drove in two runs for the Brewers. Mark Reynolds hit his fourth homer. Ike Davis doubled, singled and walked a day after the Pirates got him in a trade with the Mets. Jim Henderson (2-0) pitched a scoreless eighth and Francisco Rodriguez got his sixth save.

NBA Playoffs Underway
Indiana, Toronto and the Los Angeles Clippers all gave it away Saturday, a day when road teams enjoyed a slew of opening-day success. The Pacers lost to Atlanta 101-93, Toronto fell to Brooklyn 94-87 and the Clippers were topped by Golden State 109-105. The Pacers became the third No. 1 seed in the last decade to lose Game 1 of the playoffs — and history suggests Indiana is now in some trouble. Dallas lost its playoff opener to Golden State in 2007, San Antonio fell to eighth-seeded Memphis to open the 2011 playoffs, and both wound up being eliminated in those respective series. According to STATS, the only season where road teams won more than three games to open a playoff season was 1966. Visiting clubs won the first five games of that postseason.
