Werenski Bloodied as Penguins Score Tying Goal

The worst kind of double-whammy occurred for the Columbus Blue Jackets in the second period of today's Game 3 vs. the Pittsburgh Penguins at First Nationwide Arena. Zach Werenski was bloodied after taking a shot to the face, and the Penguins scored to tie the game on the play (see full video above).

Play was not whistled down because the Blue Jackets never possessed the puck while Werenski was down on the ice, and Bryan Rust ended up tallying the tying goal for the Penguins.

Werenski would return to action with a full face shield and a seriously blackened eye.

The Penguins currently lead 4-3 in the third on the strength of Jake Guentzel's second goal of the game at 11:48 of the third period.

UPDATE: Columbus tied it on a Brandon Dubinsky goal at 15:11 of the third. You guys might want to switch this game on if you haven't already.
