Blue Jackets vs. Predators: Shea Weber's own-goal gives Columbus a win


Kirk Irwin

The Blue Jackets might make the playoffs because Shea Weber scored on his own goalie.

Let that sink in for a moment.

With four minutes or so left in a tie game that Columbus absolutely had to win to reach the postseason, Nick Foligno threw the puck out in front of the net and Shea Weber's stick betrayed him.


The Jackets went on to win 3-1. If the Wild blow their lead against the Avalanche in the third period, you know the Jackets are a team of destiny.
