NHL sets time for Game 5 of CBJ-Pittsburgh series

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Saturday night’s Game Five of the Pittsburgh Penguins – Columbus Blue Jackets Stanley Cup Playoffs first-round series will start at 7 p.m. E.T.

That announcement came Wednesday from the NHL. The series is being played under a 2-2-1-1-1 format, meaning Game Five is in Pittsburgh. It will be broadcast by FOX Sports Ohio.

Game Six will be Monday night back in Columbus at a time to be determined, and Game Seven would be April 30 at Pittsburgh if necessary.  

The teams split the first two games of the series in Pittsburgh last week and the two games in Columbus this week.
