Columbus, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Nick Foligno's tally at 2:49 of overtime gave the Columbus Blue Jackets their first home playoff win in franchise history, a 4-3 triumph over the Pittsburgh Penguins which evened this Eastern Conference quarterfinal at two games apiece. Foligno carried the puck up the left wing through the neutral zone, in a 1-on-1 with Pens defenseman Matt Niskanen, then released the puck below the circle, where it dropped from the glove hand of Marc-Andre Fleury and slid home. Fleury was also responsible for a miscue leading to the hosts' tying goal with 22.5 seconds remaining in regulation. He headed behind his net to play a Jack Johnson dump-in, but the puck hopped over his stick and found Ryan Johansen, who dished into the slot for a successful shot by Brandon Dubinsky. Fleury ended up with 42 saves in the crushing setback, while counterpart Sergei Bobrovsky clocked in with 22 stops after giving up the game's first three scores in a span of just over five minutes in the first period. Johansen and Boone Jenner notched the other goals for the Blue Jackets, who had gone 0-3 in Ohio's capital in the postseason before Wednesday's triumph. Craig Adams, Chris Kunitz and James Neal tallied for the Penguins, who can steal momentum back home in Game 5 on Saturday.

Final Score: Dallas 4, Anaheim 2

Dallas, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - The Dallas Stars took care of business at American Airlines Center, winning two straight games on home ice against the Anaheim Ducks to even their Western Conference quarterfinal series at two games apiece. Vernon Fiddler had a goal and an assist as the Stars scored four unanswered goals to claim a 4-2 victory in Game 4 on Wednesday. Jamie Benn, Cody Eakin and Alex Goligoski also lit the lamp for Dallas, which had dropped Games 1 and 2 in Anaheim. Kari Lehtonen stopped 21-of-23 shots. Bryan Allen and Patrick Maroon scored for the Ducks. Frederik Andersen turned aside 21- of-25 shots before being pulled in the third period for Jonas Hiller. Anaheim forward Teemu Selanne, who is playing his final NHL season, was a healthy scratch for Game 4. The Ducks, who lost defenseman Stephane Robidas to a fractured right leg in Game 3, were also without the services of center Ryan Getzlaf, who is listed as day-to-day with an upper-body injury. Game 5 is set for Friday at Anaheim.
