PITTSBURGH — Columbus coach Todd Richards insists his upstart team isn’t in the playoffs “just to go to school.”
Maybe, but the Pittsburgh Penguins provided a pretty valuable lesson in perseverance during a 4-3 victory in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals on Wednesday night.
Down two after 21 minutes of slow and sometimes sloppy hockey, the Metropolitan Division champions responded by scoring the final three goals, including Brandon Sutter’s go-ahead wrist shot 8:18 into the third period.
“I think we expected a tight game,” Sutter said after the third playoff goal of his career. “They got up and we stuck with it. It was a good win.”
One that came with more than a few tense moments. Beau Bennett and Matt Niskanen scored power-play goals 45 seconds apart in the second period, erasing Pittsburgh’s two-goal deficit.

Game 2 is Saturday night.
