Columbus secured Playoffs spot

Thanks God! Its over! That, probably, was the first thing that came in mind to the Columbus fans yesterday after the final whistle of the end of regulation. Tied the game with Chicago has brought so desired one point to guarantee the 2009 playoffs spot. The Blue Jackets, who entered the NHL in 2000-01, were the only active team that hadn't made the playoffs. This unpleasant fact is the history now thanks to Rick Nash late goal that tied the game with 5:30 left in regulation to force overtime. "The biggest goal in the history of the franchise," Hitchcock, Columbus coach, said after the game. It was the 39th goal of the season for Blue Jackets captain and the biggest (and probably, the only) star of the club. This blog would like to congratulate Columbus Blue Jackets fans and Rick Nash admires in particular for wrapping up their first playoff spot. "To get that one point was huge ... after being down 2-0. To get the win was even more important," said Nash at his interview to the media.

  1. Rick is the best two-way forward in NHL, isn't he?
