Sunday Night Check In
Wife and I were victimized by the rather freakish snowstorm that hit certain parts of the midwest last night and early today. So, our rather simple 7:50 AM flight from St. Louis to Chicago, then Chicago to Columbus, turned into an 11:45 flight from St. Louis to Chicago, followed by a flight from Chicago to Cleveland, followed by a drive from Cleveland to Columbus. Lovely day . . .
Of course, got home to be greeted by a rare stinker by the CBJ. Time for the boys to take a day off, get their focus back. Tonight we had plenty of energy, just no execution, and some really catastrophic mistakes, particularly in our own zone. Steve made some great saves, but also some bad decisions. With Nashville winning as well, and Anaheim currently beating Colorado, things are tightening up. We are still in the driver’s seat, and the other teams have their challenges in the final half dozen as well.
We are 3-1-2 for the first half of the Dirty Dozen, so that ain’t half bad. 8 of 12 possible points — a .750 clip. Just need to get back to basics.
Exhaustion has set in, so will defer the game review and playoff status posts until tomorrow. Thanks to all the CBJ fans who represented well in St. Louis. Go Jackets!
