Columbus Blue Jackets' Nick Foligno Sinks Pittsburgh in OT

Down in the series 2-1 and trailing in Game 4 by a goal with under a minute to play... it looked as the Columbus Blue Jackets' magic had run out.

But then Penguins keeper Marc-Andre Fluery goofed, and CBJ's Brandon Dubinsky was there to capitalize to send the game into overtime.

What happened in overtime? History, my friends.

Loved watching it on the FSOhio broadcast, but man, the NBC announcer's last few lines gave me chills.

"In Pittsburgh, the thing is called 'Buckle up for the playoffs.' They'd better buckle up now, because Columbus is coming down the highway with a whole lotta speed."

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

Was thinking the same thing, the lines before what you quoted were great to, awesome call

Outside of Shelley, there is nothing good about the FSO broadcasts to me. Rimer and Davidge are morons.

Rims and Davidge are cartoon characters.  If you go in with that thought then it's somewhat enjoyable.

Yeah I've started to take that approach, since neither of them actually know anything about hockey. Every time Rimer brags about the CBJ having X amount of hits, I just shake my head and sigh.

Davidge...isn't awful (?) when he does the intermission film breakdown.  But as long as you're not expecting a great broadcast from those two, you can get some chuckles in listening to them.

That was Pierre McGuire, the guy that does ice-level reporting for NBC. Hockey fans are pretty divided on him, as he's rarely ever critical about a team, and usually gushes about every single franchise, but I personally like him. The dude is a hockey encyclopedia, he could probably name the Junior/College/European team that every NHLer played for prior to their NHL career.

Awesome moment for our franchise and our city. That goal was a thing of beauty, and great block (or puck in the face) by Umberger to set it up too. I couldn't help but yell and wake up the whole house but what a sweet moment!

Between this, Urb, Thad & the Ohio Roller Rink Girls, we are in the golden age of Columbus sports. Happier than hell to be living in it, right meow.

This cat is not so thrilled but he's in the minority (and he's at least not clawing at your furnitures anymore)...

My first ever hockey experience and what a game to pick. One of the most fun experiences of my life. That place went off when the last two goals were scored. Consider me a hockey fan. 

How firm thy friendship..

That game literally sold a thousand season tickets for next season. Just a great moment for the team, the fans, and the city.

I'm glad they are doing well. Regardless of the outcome for this series, I think finally getting to the playoffs and winning a few games will do wonders for the franchise.

...and Michigan still sucks.

If Fleury continues with those last two gaffes....Lord help him on Monday.  NWA might not let up.  All Game.

MAF should have saved that shot - partial screen at best. 

So happy for the Jackets
