Long-suffering Duchene gives Blue Jackets playoff punch

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Matt Duchene is having a splendid time these days. It showed when he skated up to the glass to greet his wife, Ashley, and 3-month-old son Beau during warmups before the Columbus Blue Jackets won their third straight playoff game.

Nothing but smiles and "aaaws," a sweet moment for mom and dad shared with thousands of others via social media.

That night the 28-year-old Canadian center scored the first goal of the game for Columbus , a sweet backhander off a rebound to break a scoreless tie in the second period. The Blue Jackets went on to a 3-1 win in building a 3-0 series lead against the Tampa Bay Lightning, a team hardly anyone thought they could beat.
