We'll likley have 40 SOG and we'll limit them to 3 SOG.
Boll will get into 3 fights (the last one he'll fight Dorsett out of sheer boredeom).
After seeing only 175 people in attendance, they will move the final 2 periods of the game to the Ice Haus to save some money.
San Jose plays 2 men down for the entire game. For the OT the Sharks pull their goalie, and as expected the Jackets can't get close to it.
We'll lose in a shoot out 1-0 oh and the sharks didn't even bother using a goalie in the shoot out, but the Jackets missed 3 shots.
At last night's game, an Oilers fan and his girlfriend were sitting next to me. When the Jackets pulled their goalie, he was explaining it to her "("This is the first time she's been to a hockey game," he told me). I replied by saying that, for most teams, having an extra player on the ice gives you a better chance to score, but I'm not sure that's the case with Columbus, because that sixth player is probably someone who can't score. I followed that up by saying the Jackets should always be allowed to have an extra skater.
Yep, I was pretty bitter at last night's game.

Please make time to visit the HF Sharks board just to enjoy the genius of their GDT!
Love how none of the Blue Jackets wanted to be hockey players, but instead wanted to be... A lumberjack.
Considering that the Sharks used to be co-owned by Gordon Gund, who's name used to be on the Gund Arena where the Cleveland Lumberjacks played, it is easy to see why they wouldn't want to be the Lumberjacks.
(and yes, I did get asked by an usher to kindly not sing the Lumberjack song at the top of my lungs at Lumberjacks games)
San Jose will be rested and I expect them to pounce early. Coupled with a Jacket team that lost a frustrating one yesterday and what should be a small and flat crowd (btw, I was impressed with the size of the crowd that came out last night), the Sharks take this one 4-1. In keeping with the theme of high-prcied forwards finally scoring, Dubinsky scores the lone goal.
