4/23 Dark Evening Update: Blue Jackets, Reds, Life

Today was a tough one for me, I won’t go into full details, but I finally finished my exams for the University of Cincinnati, and next year I’ll be a Senior, wow this is crazy.

Let’s go to sports, shall we, and man what a crazy night for the Ohio teams.

Cincinnati Reds

: This team is starting to click just a bit, not trying to get too caught up on it. The Reds win their second straight tonight over the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-2, and will go for 3 out of 4 in the series tomorrow afternoon at 12:35pm

Alfredo Simon struggled in the first inning, but hanged in there and gave the club 6 2/3 innings of solid pitching as he continues to be a major help for the pitching staff as he improves to 3-1 on the season.

I’ll have a recap on the game later on here, so stay tuned.

Columbus Blue Jackets: Wow wow and wow. This series has been a classic so far. The Penguins got in front 3-0 in the first period of Game 4 and it looked like the young Jackets will fold, that wasn’t the case to be. A late first period goal, gave them momentum as they trailed 3-1 after one.

In the second period, Ryan Johansen got a power play goal, to cut the Pens lead to 3-2 and you just felt that they are in good position to possibly tying the game up.

With 23 seconds left in the 3rd period, Brandon Dubinsky scored the tying the goal and Nationwide Arena went nuts, goodness I wish I was there.

Then, Nick Folingo scored the game winning goal, three minutes into the first overtime to give the Jackets a 4-3 classic game 4 win to tie the series at 2, and now it’s a best of three series.

Man, I’m starting to like Hockey a lot, these playoffs have been classic and I can’t wait for Game 5, which will be on Saturday at 7pm on FSN Ohio as it will be back at Pittsburgh.

The loyal Blue Jackets fans should enjoy this moment, they have come a long way and now they have a team that is capable of making a run for the cup!
