The word needs to be spread around Columbus that the Jackets are in the race so more and more people will show up to these games so let's all get to work!
I'm enthusiastic, but lets be sure we are realistic about this.
Points back is a deceptive stat. We have more games than many ahead of us and some behind us. In reality, the CBJ are a bit further away. I think they still sit at a 5% chance to make the playoffs.
Not saying it isn't possible, but it will be more difficult than it seems. Something like 6 games over .500 is required from here on out. Sounds easy. History says it isn't.
