Game 57 / Check out the whole project here

Game Highlights:
- I love beating the Penguins, and not only because it's a great feeling winning over such a competitive team, but also because my best friend was raised in Pittsburgh and has a dog named Sid.
-The first period was intense. Both teams were battling every second and it showed early that the goalies were going to be the stars of the game.
-After regrouping at intermission the Jackets came out with full force. Ryan Murray scored a backhanded goal during a front of paint flurry was distracting the Pens. This was Murray's 3rd goal of the season.
-Unfortunately, about 5 mins later Bob was screened by our own defense and a weak shot made it to the back of the net.
-There were a number of breakaways and the Jackets even had 2 goals called off before the cannon could be heard. Even though there were no goals in the third, regulation was nothing short of an entertaining and strong game.
-Sedlak left with a lower body injury in the second period and didn't return
-OT started out uneasy for the CBJ. The Pens quickly took control of the puck and blocked the Jackets from changing shifts, which left starters Dubs, Atkinson, and Jones on the ice for a minute straight.
-After a moment to steady themselves at a stoppage of play, Jones made the move to steal the puck, pass it to Cam, who got it to Dubs. That's when Brandon said he "blacked out and made a goal." The building erupted.
-Speaking of which, the attendance at Nationwide Arena was 19,188 (the second-largest ever for a Blue Jackets regular-season game).
-Hartnell was out for the second game in a row.
