Craig Adams, Chris Kunitz, James Neal scored in a 5:01 span in 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.

Stars 4, Ducks 2 • In Dallas, Cody Eakin and Alex Goligoski scored 1:22 apart on Dallas’ first two shots in the third period and the Stars beat top-seeded Anaheim in Game 4 to tie the series 2-2.

Game 5 is Friday night in Anaheim, and Game 6 is Sunday in Dallas.

Even without captain Ryan Getzlaf, a surprise late scratch with an upper-body injury, and healthy scratch Teemu Selane, the Ducks jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first period on goals by Bryan Allen and Patrick Maroon.

Blackhawks 4, Blues 3 (OT) • In Chicago, Patrick Kane scored his second goal of the game at 11:17 of overtime, and Chicago evened its first-round playoff series at two games apiece.

Kane carried the puck down the left side and beat Ryan Miller with a well-placed wrist shot for his 32nd career postseason goal.
