Michael Chaput and Cam Atkinson both had a goal and assist for Columbus (3-0). Chaput stuffed in a loose puck late in the second period after Atkinson drove the net and put a shot off the right post.

Atkinson scored into an empty net.

Pittsburgh (0-2) again played without stars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. Thomas Greiss went the distance and made 26 saves.
