Nick Foligno predicted his overtime winner on Wednesday.

"Nick's exact words were: 'I'm going to go out and score the OT goal. I haven't done a whole lot until now. But I'm going to find a way to score. I hope you don’t mind,'" teammate Brandon Dubinsky said. Foligno lived up to that pledge, scoring just 2:49 minutes into overtime. It was his first playoff point in two games.

Nick Foligno played hero for the Blue Jackets Wednesday as his overtime winner sealed a 4-3 victory over the Penguins.

In one of the best games of the young postseason, Columbus fell behind 3-0 in the first period of this contest only to tie it in the final minute before Foligno capped things off. Ryan Johansen, Brandon Dubinsky and Boone Jenner all scored goals for the Jackets, who have now drawn even with Pittsburgh in the series through four games.

Foligno was cleared after Game 2 on Saturday and will likely play alongside R.J. Umberger and Artem Anisimov as the series against the Penguins moves to Columbus Monday. He had 18 goals, 39 points and 210 hits this season so his presence in the lineup will provide a boost to the Blue Jackets.

Nick Foligno (knee) skated after practice on Saturday and could be good to go for Game 3.

Nick Foligno's lower-body injury is related to his knee.

Nick Foligno (lower body) may not be ready for the start of the playoffs.

He has been sidelined since Apr. 3 with a lower-body injury. In 70 games this season, Foligno has 18 goals and 39 points, along with 96 penalty minutes and 210 hits. His physical style would certainly benefit the team come postseason time.
Apr 12 - 10:56 AM

The Columbus Blue Jackets will be missing forward Nick Foligno (lower body) for the rest of their regular season.

Foligno's season came to a premature end on Thursday when he was injured during the closing minutes of a 2-0 win at Philadelphia. Foligno banged knees with Flyers forward Scott Hartnell. Foligno finished his shift and immediately headed down the tunnel behind the Jackets’ bench. He might not emerge until the postseason, coach Todd Richards said. "He saw the doctor (yesterday) and I haven’t gotten the full results yet, but more than likely it’s going to be an injury that will keep him out through the regular season," Richards said. "He could return (for the playoffs)." Foligno, a puck hound who plays both wings, has a career-high 18 goals in 70 games and had a shot at scoring 20 goals for the first time in his seven-year NHL career. He leads the Jackets with 96 penalty minutes.

Mar 21 - 9:42 PM

Nick Foligno's empty net goal on Saturday was the 200th point of his NHL career.

Mar 2 - 6:50 AM
