GIF: Nick Foligno scores in overtime, Jackets even up series

After recovering from a 3-0 deficit and tying the game with just 22 seconds remaining in regulation, the Columbus Blue Jackets won Game Four early in overtime from a goal by Nick Foligno. They have now evened up the first round series against the Pittsburgh Penguins at two games a piece. 

Such a critical win in another resilient effort by the hockey club as they continue to surprise me this year. They will have all the momentum heading into Game Five.

Up 3-2 with less than a minute remaining, goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury made a costly mistake. The Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender went behind the net to play the puck and lost it.

It went straight to Brandon Dubinsky - the man hired to shadow Sidney Crosby - and he scored the tying goal with just 22 seconds remaining. The game is headed to overtime.

GIF: Los Angeles Kings mascot knocks down San Jose Sharks mascot, who loses his head as a result

Following Patrick Marleau's overtime winner yesterday night - which has given the Sharks a commanding 3-0 series lead - San Jose's mascot "SJ Sharkie" went walking around the ice with a sign saying "Beat LA". 

As a result, he was tackled to the ice by Los Angeles' mascot "Bailey". After hitting the ice, he lost his mask which was quickly recovered before anyone could see his face. See the video of the entire incident here.

The Kings vs. Sharks rivalry gets even more intense every day.

Top 20 most popular NHL players according to Google

Top 20 most popular NHL players according to Google

Best Tickets Blog gathered some compelling data recently after researching the most popular athletes according to their number of Google search queries over the past 12 months.

Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, and Floyd Maywether are one, two and three on the list. The first NHL athlete doesn't appear on the rankings until 31st (Sidney Crosby). Above is a list excluding all non-hockey athletes and showing you the most searched players from the National Hockey League. 

- Not too surprising seeing Sidney Crosby first on the list. 

- T.J. Oshie sits in third place solely because of his incredible shootout performance in the 2014 Sochi Olympics

- Phil Kessel and Tyler Seguin are both in the top twenty because Leafs fans have continuously debated their trade

Don't Miss: "Who's That NHL Player" Trivia

- Biggest surprise is definitely Mike Fisher at number 13. Not sure why he's so high on the list. Carrie Underwood maybe? 

- Four players from the Boston Bruins on this list (Rask, Chara, Iginla, Lucic). 

- Biggest snub is Steven Stamkos. The Lightning forward is a perennial fifty goal scorer when healthy, and arguably the most electrifying sniper in the game after Alexander Ovechkin. I can't believe he's not on here. Maybe because of a non-traditional hockey market: Tampa Bay. 

These statistics were brought to you by Best Tickets.

Phil Kessel tells Leafs fans to 'relax' on Twitter

Phil Kessel tells Leafs fans to 'relax' on Twitter

Toronto Maple Leafs forward Phil Kessel made an oopsie on Twitter yesterday, tweeting "Night fishing with friends doesn't get much better". 

23 minutes later, after getting his notifications tab destroyed by Leafs fans, he realized that playoff hockey in Toronto - which did not happen this year - would have actually been better. 

He replied by telling Leafs Nation to 'relax'. He has deleted both Tweets now. 

The blame's not all on him though for the Leafs missing the post-season. The 26 year old forward did have the sixth most points in the NHL this season, with 80 tallies in 82 games.

GIF: Granlund scores goal of the playoffs in overtime winner?

Mikael Granlund may have just scored the goal of the playoffs in Game Three between the Colorado Avalanche and Minnesota Wild quarter-final series.

In overtime, the Wild forward deked around the entire Colorado defense, somehow kept control of the puck, fell to the ice, and shot it into the net.

Pretty incredible for your first career playoff goal. The Avalanche now lead the series only by one game, 2-1. Granlund puts the Wild back within reach.
