They looked set to give this game away on a number of occasions, but the Jackets pulled out the season opening road win in dramatic fashion, Rick Nash scoring the game winner late in OT. Way to start the season, especially for a club that has historically struggled so much on the road.
I was back and forth between this game and the St. Lawrence-Michigan tilt on the internet (bad guys won), so I didn’t get a comprehensive look at the Jackets, but the kids seemed to do pretty well tonight. Kris Russell was especially noticeable.
On to Phoenix tomorrow!
