Making the playoffs for the third time in franchise history is just the first step for the Columbus Blue Jackets.
There’s much more serious work ahead for Pittsburgh Penguins Cheap Jerseys coach John Tortorella and his team in the next few weeks: making a run at the Stanley Cup.
Lukas Sedlak and Brandon Dubinsky scored on penalty shots and the Blue Jackets returned to the playoffs for the first time since 2014 with a 4-1 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Sunday.
There was some laughter heard outside the Blue Jackets’ locker room before it opened and Tortorella said he wanted his players to enjoy the night. Then it’s back to work.
“It gives us an opportunity to talk about it,” Tortorella said of clinching. “We are in. To me, it’s the start of a road. You work that hard throughout the year, the amount of games you have to play; it gives you an opportunity to start your journey that you want to be on.”
The Cowboys are still alone leading the division, even if it is with a .500 record. Yet that is a slender thread to hang onto to hope to get into the postseason. They do have some games coming up that they should be able to win, but they also have at least one, against the New Orleans Saints, that Rg3 Cheap Jerseys looks to be a near certain loss now (and will likely drop them back to .500).
