Make or break time. If the Jackets win their last two games against the Rangers and Senators, they're in.

Close it out the next game, while you have your foot on there throat. Tampa Bay is to good of a team to even give them a chance to get some momentum by returning to TB.

Congrats to the Blue Jackets!! They played as if they won 62 games in the regular season. After the first period of game 1, Columbus survived a power play early in the second and got momentum. They NEVER looked back.

Tampa played a step late...in fact, they looked timid. I can't blame our goalie as the defence around him was pathetic. Injuries to Hedman and Strahlman (our top defenders) didn't help.

Columbus won with precision passing....stick to stick. They played as one unit, whether on offense or defense.

There is much more I could say but, I'll leave it to others. A tip of the hat to the Blue Jackets and best of luck the rest of the way!!!

Bottom line....THIS IS WHY I LOVE THE STANLEY CUP PLAYOFFS!!! Ya never know what the hell can happen!!

Proud of our CBJ!! Tampa entered the playoffs as the favorite to win the Stanley Cup, and the Jackets didn't just win, they dominated, especially in this last game to close out the sweep!

Forgot to mention this....

I feel the acquisition of Duchene and Dzingel were huge for Columbus, as I mentioned earlier in this thread.

Misery does love company....The Islanders just swept Crosby and the Penguins.

Worth repeating....THIS IS WHY I LOVE THE STANLEY CUP PLAYOFFS!!

They'll play the winner of the Toronto vs. Boston series, Toronto leads that series 3-2 currently. Can't find the schedule for the second round yet.

Last year, Alex Ovechkin became the first Russian born captain to win the Stanley cup and third non- north american captain to do so.

Can you name the other two??? And team??

Also, can you name the two US born captains to win the cup....and their teams???

I'll give the answer Monday evening...

Let's not jump up and down too much since this is the only playoff series the Jackets have won in their 20 year existence. I live in Columbus and have never been a hockey fan but their fans are already delirious about the season so far. Reality should set in here shortly after they realize it takes 4 rounds of series wins to bring home the Cup.

Columbus gets Boston....

Bruins win 4-1 in game 7 over Toronto

The drought continues for Canada....now 26 years since the Habs last won in 1993, defeating the LA Kings with Gretsky.

Good luck Columbus...

There will be a new Stanley Cup Champion...

In double overtime, the Carolina Hurricanes win 4-3 and move on to face the Islanders. Helluva a game!!!

Also, first time that ALL division winners are out after the first round. Gotta love the playoffs!!!
