Columbus Blue Jackets vs Montreal Canadiens - Bell Center 7:30 pm - CBC RDS TSN HABS
versus these guys
The Blue Jackets name was selected because the name pays homage to Ohio’s contributions to American history and the great pride and patriotism exhibited by its citizens, especially during the Civil War as both the state of Ohio and the city of Columbus were significantly influential on the Union Army. Ohio contributed more of its population to the Union Army than any other state, while many of the Blue Coats worn by the Union soldiers were manufactured in Columbus.
As your regulars have said, great GDT! I'm a more "mature" fan of the Jackets, so I grew up admiring the play of the great Habs teams of the '50s and '60s and it will be a real thrill, now that we're in the Eastern Conference, to watch my home team compete on Montreal ice regularly. Here's to the beginning of a great rivalry, filled with clean, hard, exciting hockey!
