UPDATE (1:25 PM)-

**Here’s at the 8 rookies to record hat tricks in the Stanley Cup Playoffs since 1987-88: Jake Guentzel (2017), Flip Forsberg (2015), J-G Pageau (2013), Sean Couturier (2012), Jason Pominville (2006), Andy Delmore (2000), Teemu Selanne (1993), Pavel Bure (1992), Tony Hrkac (1988).

UPDATE (1:19 PM)-

**From the Pens room, defenseman Olli Mattaa and Trevor Daley both talked about feeling their timing was improving after missing time in the second half of the season with injures. Daley says his strength is coming back and spent some time in the weight room this morning.

UPDATE (1:14 PM)-

**This morning while speaking to the media, Columbus head coach John Tortorella won’t commit to a starting goalie for Game 4 which means he’s not entirely happy with starter Sergei Bobrovsky.

**Also from this morning, forward Brandon Dubinsky said he didn’t want to talk about the Penguins anymore. He also said that they need to “clamp down” on the Pens lines. Translation: look for Columbus to ramp up the physical play even more in Game 4.

UPDATE (1:11 PM)-

UPDATE (1:06 PM)-

**A big loss for Columbus as the team announced that D Zach Werenski will miss the remainder of the series with facial fractures.
