Golden Bear, Columbus penguins show support for CBJ

Jack Nicklaus knows a few things about winning championships.

After winning the NCAA golf championship competing for Ohio State in 1961, "the Golden Bear" went on to a professional golf career that would include 18 major victories, the most of all time.

Now he hopes to see his hometown team bring home the Stanley Cup.

Nicklaus joins a list of CBJ supporters that already includes Urban Meyer, Nick Swisher, Derek Holland, the Cincinnati Reds and Brutus Buckeye as the Blue Jackets compete in the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the second time.

Also apparently on board? The penguins at the Columbus Zoo.

The series continues in Pittsburgh Saturday night before moving to Columbus for Game 3 Monday night.
