Video: Blue Jackets’ Prospal beats the Red Wings in style

Is Vinny Prospal a fan of Robert Griffin III?

Who knows, but the underrated Columbus Blue Jackets took a page out of the Washington Redskins quarterback’s celebratory playbook and threw in a little spin-o-rama when he scored this game-winning goal against the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday:

That gave Columbus a 3-2 win against Detroit. Prospal now has six goals and nine points on the season, with three points in his last three games.

The 38-year-old forward is making $2.5 million this season on a one-year deal.
