Matt Calvert’s Night

from Aaron Portzline of Puck-Rakers at the Columbus Dispatch,

Matt Calvert stood at his locker stall after the game, a Civil War-style kepi on his head, a bandage across his forehead and a growing welt around his right eye -- as if he just walked off the set of Glory.

Calvert wore something else, too: a smile.

The Blue Jackets’ third-line speedster left Friday’s 4-2 win over the New York Rangers midway through the second period after he was struck in the face by a slap shot, opening a nasty cut over his right eyebrow.

He returned to a rousing ovation from a crowd of 14,541 in Nationwide Arena early in the third period, then scored the game-winning short-handed goal – the Jackets’ first shorty this season – with 11:45 remaining to give the Blue Jackets' a signature win.

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.
