I’m a veritable broken record on the subject of the injustice of a team clawing its way from a deficit to a perfectly respectable tie, and then losing in the shootout. But I guess no one cares anymore.
Jackets showed some good, some bad last night. A point on the road on the second night of a back-to-back isn’t terrible. But one point out of a possible six in three games against Division opponents isn’t anything to write home about.
This team is a work in progress. I have the feeling this season is going to continue to be a bit of a rollercoaster.
However, with OSU now out of national championship contention (jeez, was that game ever painful to watch!), the Jackets have a better chance to pick up some more bandwagon fans now. So at the very least, let’s have some strong home games next week.
