COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Jake Guentzel scored his third goal of the game at 13:10 of overtime, and the Pittsburgh Penguins took a commanding lead in their first-round Eastern Conference playoff series with a 5-4 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Sunday night.

The Penguins lead the best-of-seven series 3-0 with a chance for a sweep on Tuesday night in Nationwide Arena.

Brandon Dubinsky had tied the score at 4 with 4:49 left in the third period when he punched in a rebound on a hard shot by Blue Jackets teammate Jack Johnson.

Bryan Rust had two goals for the Penguins, who rallied from an early 3-1 deficit to take a 4-3 lead in the third period.

Evgeni Malkin contributed three assists, and Phil Kessel and Sidney Crosby had two assists each for the Penguins.

Cam Atkinson scored two first-period goals for the Blue Jackets. Zach Werenski also had a goal, and Nick Foligno added two assists.

Werenski returned to the game in the third period after he was hit in the face by a puck just before the Penguins scored to make it 3-3 in the second period.

Marc-Andre Fleury finished with 33 saves for the Penguins, and Sergei Bobrovsky had 42 saves for the Blue Jackets.

Trailing 3-1 after one period, the Penguins started the second as the aggressors and responded with two goals from Rust to tie the score at 3.

The first came on a Rust tip-in of a shot from inside the blue line by Brian Dumoulin at 5:21. Rust then tied the score at 13:25 when he took a cross-ice pass from Evgeni Malkin just to the left of the crease and the puck squirted under Bobrovsky's pads after it appeared he had made a stop.

On the play, Werenski went down between the circles when the puck appeared to hit him in the face. Play continued because Columbus failed to control the puck and the Penguins took advantage.

The Blue Jackets wasted little time revving up their dormant offense after the puck dropped. Atkinson scored his first goal 11 seconds into the game when he took a rebound off a shot from the left circle from Brandon Dubinsky and deposited the puck in the net.

The goal was the fastest in Blue Jackets playoff history.

The Penguins answered 3:06 later when Guentzel collected the puck after it bounced off the boards behind the net and beat Bobrovsky on the glove side to tie the score at 1 with his second goal of the series.

Atkinson came back less than two minutes later with his second goal of the game to put Columbus back on top 2-1. After a Penguins turnover, Atkinson skated in on Fleury, dragged the puck in front and fired a low backhander.

A little more than a minute later, Werenski made it 3-1 with a blast from the top of the left circle that found the top right corner of the net on the lone power play of the opening period.
