So true! I'm listening on a work computer with no real speakers and had to click back 3 times to make sure I heard that douchebag announcer. He went looking for Duclair, and there's no other way to call that.
...bitch. There, I said it.
If Marchand doesn’t care about his team enough to pass on a cheap shot, why should the league officials fret about suspending him for a critical Game 4?
Best line in the article, and also 100% correct.
Very impressive win. Eliminate the first 10 minutes of mental lapses and this is an absolute blowout!
When I was a kid rooting for a low scoring team and they had an offensive explosion, I'd always say "I hope they didn't waste all of it in one game". I'm kinda feeling that way tonight. Good win over a very tough Boston team, now it's time to validate it.
It's definitely worth a few of our guys who have yet to reach their potential, but as is stated, defenseman is not the most glaring need for the CBJ. In about one year, we're going to need a solid first line winger. At the same time, this team as it is now is quite a few pieces away from seriously contending for a Stanley Cup, and another offensive-minded D is certainly on that list.
I LOVE this!! Rutherford should mind his own damn business and Torts had every right to verbally let him have it. All that's left now is figuring out how to make this a Pay-per-view cage match.
Would we be getting motivated Rick Nash or quitter Rick Nash? Our most recent experience with him wasn't the best.
Maybe he wants to see the Jackets' current players improve, or see the front office make some moves to add more talent. This team still has plenty of holes, and first round exits will continue if those holes aren't plugged.
The power play has definitely come together at the right time, starting about a month ago. Now if we can avoid giving the Caps so many opportunities, we should be able to take our first ever series.
Not to mention they decided to put Holtby in the game and he lost. The "feels" are definitely on the side of the CBJ.
I didn't realize until just now that Bob had 54 saves...that is incredible!!! He's been the best player on the ice, and that's exactly what we need!
Beautiful! This game had me on the edge of my seat at every turn. I'd prefer to go up by a couple of goals and cruise, but this team just doesn't play like that, and I'll take it. I wish I could go to either of these next two games, but alas I am working both nights. I'm still hoping we close it out on Thursday and we'll figure out my availability later. Let's Go Jackets!!
I'm hoping Wennberg's status was an added effort to get Wilson a suspension.
Pretty amazing considering the Wilson and Anderson hits were the opposite ends of the spectrum. I'm not gonna start screaming "conspiracy" yet, but this looks bad on the NHL.
I'm not a huge fan of McElligot, but you could feel the true excitement in that call, as opposed to the forced excitement he usually has. Oh, and Panarin is super smooth!
Well, I'm late to the party, but we got who I wanted all along. I get that we'll have to beat Shittsburgh eventually, but we might as well enter that contest with as much momentum as possible.
Damn right this game meant nothing. Of course, winning it meant another date with the Pens, which is something I didn't want. And when I saw the number of healthy scratches and Bob not in goal, I just wanted to see a competitive game. On to Washington!
We really need Dubi to hit the reset button and have a great series. I'm excited as hell for this series to start!
I was really torn heading into this game tonight as far as how I wanted the games to shake out and who I wanted to face in the first round. Ultimately, I think this was the best possible matchup for us. If we advance and end up taking on the Pens, we'll have a lot more confidence. Let's Go Jackets!!!
Yeah that first wildcard spot isn't looking all that bad right now. But I also look at it this way...it's important for us to win tomorrow night. If we win tomorrow, that could really boost the confidence of the troops heading into a first round matchup with the Pens. So let's win both games to end the season and assure ourselves home ice. Plus, we've been really good at home this year.
You're right, but FLA has to win every game just to have a shot. Let's just win one and we're in. I'd love for it to be against Shittsburgh so we can feel a little better about them in the first round, assuming we will play them.
This comeback was a whole lot more fun than the last one, given the final result and all. I was never really nervous about losing this one, even given the incredibly high stakes. Its gonna be a tense 5 days!
LOVE Seth! He's a sklliful and graceful D who is willing to deliver a solid hit when necessary. He's also a poke-check master. We haven't had a D who could score consistently in a while, if ever. Keep it coming, Seth!
I never doubted Cam's contract and I felt he was completely worth it. His effort alone is worthy, but since about 2 months after the deal his production has risen significantly. He's no longer just a little guy who shows a ton of effort. Love Cam!!
