Am I ever glad I made a spur-of-the-moment decision to watch this one in person instead of on the couch. Because I got to see the CBJ gut it out and win one against a better team, which is one of those things we haven’t seen a whole lot of in seven years here in Jacketland. They made it look easy early on, but gradually let the Canucks take more control, and I was waiting for the inevitable — Vancouver to score the tying goal and then go ahead — but it didn’t come. Good show.
Also, BTW: jersey sale on right now at the Blue Line. The new Reebok replicas with Jackets’ player names & numbers are $135 right now, which is almost $50 off. They don’t know for sure how long the sale will go on. Thankfully for me, tomorrow is payday, and I work close enough to run down at lunchtime 🙂
