History Made! Columbus Wins First Playoff Victory

The Columbus Blue Jackets have won their first Stanley Cup playoff game in franchise history.

Matt Calvert scored his second goal of the game 1:10 into double overtime to give the Blue Jackets the franchise's first Stanley Cup Playoff victory, a 4-3 win against the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference First Round series at Consol Energy Center.

"You always dream about being the hero in overtime," Calvert said. "We battled for it and it didn't come easy. We were down a couple goals at different times. The penalty kill was great when it had to be and it's just a great feeling right now."

Here's the full game recap.
