Former UNO star Jake Guentzel scores first playoff goal for Penguins

Jake Guentzel scored 16 goals in the regular season for the Pittsburgh Penguins, but the playoffs are a different monster, right?

Maybe not.

With Pittsburgh and Columbus tied at one, the former Mavs star put his squad ahead with a breakaway goal.

Guentzel had two shots on goal in the Penguins' 3-1 victory over the Blue Jackets on Wednesday, but couldn't find the back of the net.

Friday was a different story. He took a pass from Sidney Crosby and sent the puck beyond goalie Sergei Bobrovsky.

Watch the video below to see Guentzel's goal.
