Not to point out the obvious, but I’m sure the mods would prefer that this conversation take place over at 1st Ohio Battery. That said, SWEEP THE GOD DAMNED MF’N LEG!!!! NO MERCY!! YOU HAVE THE MOUNTAIN DOWN; DON’T GIVE HIM A MOMENT TO CATCH YOU AND CRUSH YOUR SKULL!!
LET’S GET IT FELLAS!
I think it was the loudest sporting event I have ever been to. USC Vs OSU about a decade ago was really loud, but this was incredible. My ears are still ringing. It seemed the entire crowd stayed after it was over and cheered for at least 10 minutes.
Columbus really came out and supported the Jackets. Great atmosphere from start to finish.
Agreed. I loved every second of this game, especially the beginning and end. Everyone was just loving it.
How firm thy friendship..
CBJ fans are going to be incensed over the league overturning Atkinson’s PP goal (Would they do that for any other team?), but I think the bigger moment may be Bread not cashing in on a wide-open break to the net. Stamkos scored shortly after that to make it 2-1. I’ve got a horrible feeling that that might be the turning point in the entire series.
Nice 1st period, iffy overturn of goal. I do like that they look at it quick then make a call. None of this drag it out for five minutes stuff we see in football. It kinda took some wind out of CBJ, or so it appeared.
God > Family > Buckeyes football
That puck was clearly beyond the blue line. I saw it for a second and could see that. It was a good call.
The juice is worth the squeeze
If we're talking about the goal called off for offsides then yeah I agree. I hated it at the time but they made the right call.
Well, it is apparent that you would be a perfect fit for the NHL review booth. See something, make the call, and stick with it. CBJ won, and JT had the first, doesn't really matter now.
I cant tell if you're being snarky or complimenting me. The replay clearly showed white between the puck and blue line. There was no way they could uphold the goal. In the end it didnt matter but you were right about it taking wind out of the sail temporarily. Bring on Toronto/Boston!!
All good Bucks, legitimately having people make calls and stick with them, in a timely fashion is something the sports world needs, desperately. Was refreshing to see. Also correct on the call, white line was evident. Agreed, bring on Toronto/Boston!
CBJ needs to keep that energy, keep pushing the puck.
Won the first period, let’s keep it rolling!

12-0 and a chance to go 13-0
In another universe ttun still sucks...

For those needing a check of the score, about midway through the 2nd.
You’d think by looking at that Tampa was leading.
Edit: now I see that they are being roasted in the comments.
Yeah I should have specified CBJ was ahead...I went there to check the fan reactions, they are not happy.

Dude is killing it between the pipes
Tampa beat the Blue Jackets 17-3 over the course of the 3 regular season games they played, now they are on the brink of being swept. Sports is funny sometimes.
Ah, dang it...TB goal, now 3-2 with just under 7 in the second.
Fight to the finish
CBJ have missed a ton of opportunities to increase their lead tonight. You can’t do that.
Both teams throwing some serious shots on every rush...great action.
Skates and sticks are en fuego.
They CANNOT play this style of game and win. It’s that simple.
Tampa playing with more intensity at the moment. We need to get the momentum back.
Kill this penalty!
Looked like a penalty shot should have been called there...
The league isn’t going to let the Jackets win this.
Eat that Tampa!
To steal a phrase from a t-shirt line, it is Ohio Against the World. The f’n league is going to do everything to screw you, so you have to win this your damn selves.
“Megadeth >>> Metallica” - Alum 2019. I couldn’t agree more.
Incredible action, and we have 20 minutes to go.
4-3, Jackets...buckle up.
What a period! Wow.
I'm not a big hockey fan but it seems like there is more upsets in hockey then basketball in playoffs. Both play series and not 1 game and it probably shouldn't happen more.
Is this correct and why?
I think it’s probably the goal keeper. You get a goal keeper standing on his head and he can change an entire series. Think it’s more difficult to scheme against than a hot shooter/scorer in basketball.
But know that I’m not a hockey expert. That’s just what I’ve heard.
Come on heart, hold on throughout the third period!
LETS EFFING GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Last 20 will be intense!
Finish it Jackets!
A 2-goal lead would be nice. Just sayin’.
Would be nice for my blood pressure for sure.
Guys; you can’t survive against what is essentially a 20-minute power play. Change the momentum!
Yeah this is making me mental.
10 more minutes. Let's get this
That's a Buckeye touchdown!
Gotta swing momentum.
Edge of the seat time...
That's where I sat for the first 50 minutes, haha. The last 10 all I could do was pace the floor.
What a game.
I can feel my neck pulsating. Way too nerve wracking, I need a Blue Jacket goal.
Goallllllll, BlueJackets !!! They just might do this
There is nothing like playoff hockey.
Champipple all around!!!!
Just woke up the whole neighborhood!
I love my home town. Great crowd at NWA
Holy. Fucking. Shit.
Where's Al Michaels to call the last few minutes!
AKA the Horseshoe, the Shoe, and the House That Harley Built
It's going to happen! Sweep!
I may root for a different team, but I know had badly they wanted this.
One of the all time, decisive upsets...this was no fluke.
Congratulations to the Columbus Blue Jackets.
This is unbelievable! What a way to close out a series!
This is awesome! Take them out Jackets!
The Blue Jackets have broken this open. Get out the brooms!
The great state of Ohio is victorious! The brooms are out!
4-0 sweep YES!
I love the hand shake line at the end of the series. Such a classy tradition.
Sweet! I've said this before but I've been a Wings fan my whole life. But I find it VERY hard to not be a Jackets fan anymore. I try my best to keep my faith and pride, but this series might have just changed that.
CBJ are going to be a tough out moving forward!! This team is hitting on all cylinders at the right time!! I love playoff hockey!!
You need to be humble or you will get humbled. - Jocko Willink
Man I never watch hockey and that was awesome.
Congrats to the CBJ and their fans. Tough pill to swallow as a TB fan but CBJ were the better team. I will be firmly on the wagon the rest of the way. Hoping this isn't just a blip.
Stay golden, Ponyboy.

I mean....wow. What a game, what a series. I am so. Fucking. AMPED!
What a game, what a series.
Just keep keeping the family in the correct seats! :)
Haha you got it! And I did enforce that again tonight!
Hell of a team effort!
Special thanks to Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper for not ever understanding they were in a dogfight after the first period of game 1. Dude just kept dropping soundbites like it was fluky and never seemed to want to give the CBJ any respect. CBJ outworked them, outhustled them, out-toughed them and certainly outcoached them...
He is just a terrible coach. I hope he is fired tomorrow. Never has grasped the importance of playoff hockey.
He just signed a big extension. I think you;re stuck with him.
Rumor is they have an out. No terms were ever announced. He got skull dragged by Torts
An inability to understand the importance of a crucial situation? Wasting an obscene amount of talent? Must come with the name (sorry, Coop).
NWA went bonkers tonight. That was fun.
This is definitely where I parked my car.
I still can’t believe what I just saw. What an amazing series!
I can't wait to see some locker room videos of Tort. All kindsa bleeped out.
Awesome. Just effin' awesome.
Just for old time’s sake...
What a series for the CBJ and the city to come out and support so strongly. There was a topic that was posted here with the person wanted to fire everyone associated for the CBJ and ranting about the team. Its weird that that topic was deleted because I can't find it.
Love this team, loved this game!

The only good thing about The Game is winning it - Urban Meyer
CBJ!!!! Absolutely unreal. Those not following the Jackets are missing out, yesterday was just complete, pure gratification
John Cooper, Jon Cooper. Anybody notice this? Slightly different spellings but the name now has the connotation of a coach who wins a lot of games but is cursed by the reputations, "He can't win the Big One".
