Nice one tonight by the Jackets. For once they didn’t give up an early goal. And in fact, they managed to jump out to a 3-0 lead over the hated Preds. Granted, when Nashville made it 3-1 and then 3-2 in fairly quick succession, I started getting that old familiar sinking feeling. But Mason and the defense gutted it out for the regulation win. Can’t beat a close win over a big rival.
The only downside tonight was that my HD cable box is on the fritz, so I was forced to watch this game in sad old regular definition like it was 1990 or something. Sheesh.
With the win tonight, the Jackets are…still in fourteenth place. Doh!
Kings in town on Thursday. LA’s been a surprising team this year, with a lot of young talent taking a step forward (sigh), so it shan’t be easy to turn this into a two game winning streak for the Jackets. But hope springs eternal, right? Maybe my cable box will even be working by then.
