For me it was two specific events. First was the massive third period collapse against Nashville that lead to a 5-4 regulation loss that just left us all stunned. And then a few weeks later when the Blue Jackets beat us twice in one week I knew our goose was cooked...there was no way we were getting back on track with enough left in the tank to make it in.

So let's celebrate the official end to whatever waning hopes some of us may have had and let's get it all out there so hopefully we can forget all about it next year.
