Well, it was a hell of a run. The Blue Jackets season is over, after losing 4-3 in Game 6 to the Penguins last night. Down 4-0, the Blue Jackets rallied with three goals in a 4:52 span, but that was it. Pittsburgh wins the series 4-2. Five of the six games ended in a score of 4-3. I adopted the Blue Jackets as a team to follow this season. I really enjoyed this team, and even took my family to our first game at Nationwide Arena. Props to the Blue Jackets for their cooperation is getting players and personnel on the show this season.

The Pacers cut the deficit to 8, but that was it. Game 6 is Thursday.
What has happened to Roy Hibbert? He played 12-minutes, 0 points, 0 rebounds, 4 turnovers.
