COLUMBUS, Ohio If losing to a divisional rival on the road in overtime can provide a sense of satisfaction, then consider the Penguins in a pretty good frame of mind after their 2-1 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets at Nationwide Arena on Friday.

Brandon Dubinsky scored the game-winner 1:04 into the extra period.

In the previous 60 minutes, however, the Penguins played on very even terms with the Blue Jackets. And consider this: The Penguins were playing without two injured defensemen, two top-nine wingers and had played a grueling game against the Jets 24 hours earlier, all while the Blue Jackets rested.
