Columbus Make Playoffs For 1st Time In Their History
Well, the Blue Jackets needed a point last night to guarantee themselves a spot in this year's NHL playoffs. How fitting it was that captain Rick Nash got the goal that tied Chicago and sent the game to OT. The Blue Jackets went on to win in the shootout, but it was Nash's game tying goal that clinched the needed point to get in the playoffs. Congratulations to the Blue Jackets and their fans - it took them a while but they will finally get a taste of the playoffs!
The fans sure are happy over at Light the Lamp, as they should be!
The Cannon has a game recap and a video tribute to Blue Jackets owner John McConnell, a fan favorite, who past away last year and unfortunately didn't get to see his franchise make the playoffs.
Full game recap from The Columbus Dispatch.
