So the Blue Jackets won a playoff game…

"For serious," Columbus defeated Pittsburgh 4-3 in double overtime, tying the teams' first-round series at one--and the Blue Jackets rallied from a 3-1 deficit en route to their first playoff win:

Matt Calvert had 2 goals, David Savard had 2 assists, as Don Cherry pointed out, Brandon Dubinsky had 9 shots and 8 hits, and both goaltenders were stellar--Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 41 of 44 and Sergei Bobrovsky(!) stopped 39 of 42 in his victory.

My buddy. Die hard jacket fan.  Was telling me how stressful watching that game was.  Said a game 7 would require him to be on life support of some kind.  Told him welcme to playoff hockey.  Welcome to the stress train.
