Ladies and gentlemen, this is prime content.

Pierre-Luc Dubois, Riley Nash, and Nathan Gerbe have done the internet a huge favor by giving their own rendition on a goal call as part of the "Play-By-Player" series from the Blue Jackets.

First, Dubois takes on his goal against the Los Angeles Kings on December 19th. His overtime winner gave the Blue Jackets a huge two points after Boone Jenner tied the game with under two minutes remaining in the third period. 

Next, Riley Nash calls his goal against the Vancouver Canucks on March 1st. His goal made it a 3-2 game and ignited a furious Blue Jackets comeback that culminated in Emil Bemstrom's go-ahead, power-play goal with 1:37 remaining in the the third period.

Finally, Nathan Gerbe tackles his goal against the Buffalo Sabres on February 1st. The Blue Jackets would tie the game in the third period thanks to Oliver Bjorkstrand, but would only take a point from the contest due to Jack Eichel doing, well, Jack Eichel things and scoring in overtime. 

Which player was your favorite? Do any have a future in the broadcasting booth?
