This has gotta be a win is right! Anyone else find themselves like me right now not being able to sleep thinking the night before a dreaded game? I found this happening the night before the win over the Caps following the loss to the Caps the night before. That, and I'm excited to visit home, and see 3 Devils games after seeing 2 in a row in Florida! This is what would usually be a freebie win.
I also know Columbus has some loyal fans, and I hate calling them a chump team, and all that, and hate to be insulting, but after that BS game we just had in Florida, and seeing Columbus win 2 straight i'm very angry.
Damn is that right? I gotta be missing a few? 6 wins 2 losses 1 tie 1 OT.
I can't even find a time we played them in 07/08. Or are my eyes just shot? Last game we won 3 to 0 in Columbus last March.
We've only played them 10 times? I know they've only been around 10 years, and we usually play them only once a year.
Last time they beat us if I'm correct was at home on December 11th 2005 2-3 in OT.
Last regulation loss to them was December 12th 2002 in Columbus 2-4.
Are we just worrying for nothing? I mean I been seeing the same mistakes the last 4 games. Even the 2 wins. Our 1st period against the Panthers was like our 2nd in Tampa Bay, and our 2nd, and 3rd at the Panthers was like our 3rd in Tampa only we won.
Even in our division championship seasons we usually played down to inferior teams (standings wise, hopefully lurkers do not start menstrating over the fact that we called their team inferior again). This is the first test, we are supposed to win these next three games.
