Dubinsky has played mostly against Sidney Crosby and the matchup will be easier in Games 3 and 4 as the Blue Jackets will have the last change. Coach Todd Richards could not play Dubinsky all the time against Sid the Kid as there were too many penalties and he could not manage it. "I've seen a more-focused Dubinsky," Richards said. "He's taken it to another level. This is the big stage. The big players want to be on the big stage. You want your opportunities in the big moments, and there are plenty of those this time of year."

Brandon Dubinsky tried to find the silver lining after Columbus blew a two-goal lead against Pittsburgh in Game 1.

"I liked the way our guys fought and played," Dubinsky said. "They made one more play than us. That's the way the playoffs go some times. We can't give them odd-man rushes. We gave them too many and they made us pay. But our guys know what to expect now, and they'll come ready to battle on Saturday." Columbus was a long shot to win this series going into the playoffs and they might have lost their best chance to get under the Penguins' skin by coughing up that lead. For his part, Dubinsky had an assist in the 4-3 loss.
