How the Blue Jackets upset the juggernaut Lightning in Game 1


“So, you’re telling me there’s a chance!? Yeah!!”

Don’t be surprised if that classic “Dumb and Dumber” soundbite becomes the Columbus Blue Jackets’ rallying cry following their dramatic, come-from-behind 4-3 victory in Game 1 against the mighty Tampa Bay Lightning.

The upset stopped everybody in their tracks during an action-packed opening night of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. It turns out the Lightning, a historically great squad, is not perfect. Sure, they may end up running the table in Games 2-5, but at least this series has life.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at what factored into the Jackets erasing a three-goal deficit – and then scoring a fourth goal – to beat the 62-win Lightning on Wednesday.
