That's the section I sat in last game. Its in the right hand(face the ice) corner on the side the Oilers attack twice.

edit: Sorry I was in 226 not 236. HA101 is correct it is between center and the blue line.

Whatever happened to game day half price singles? I could buy seasons tickets in Columbus for these prices..

throw in a flat of beer and I'm all over this deal..

http://bluejackets.nhl.com/?navid=nav-teamnav-clb

or this (who can believe this ****?, these are essentially free seats, I think if you add up the freebies they're paying fans to come down to Nationwide)

http://bluejackets.nhl.com/club/page.htm?id=48158



Tonight considered a "premium game"..

What, no standing room! No belly bar!

jebus this is another sellout.

Not all that impressed in playing Dubby tonight. This is a huge game why not try and get the win tonight with gabby and play Dubby tommorow with less pressure?

I figure the coaching staff has the mentality that we're looking to play the odds and win both games, not throw all the eggs in one basket and let Dubby try and stone a team with the one in front of him looking sluggish on a back-to-back.

Dubby hasn't show the ability to win games this season by himself and Bulin has.

Atleast that's my rationale for it.

This is a game that they absolutely should and need to win, Columbus just came off of a SOW last night in a game that they had to work hard just to tie up at the end of regulation so they should be gassed tonight.
Also, the Oilers have owned the Jackets over the years so all signs are pointing to a comfortable Oilers win.

Not so fast my friends..... This Oilers team has a habit of disappointing when they are expected to do well and exceed expectations when they are expected to flounder so i'll say that the trend continue tonight.
4-3 Jackets. Prove me wrong boys.

I know what they are trying to do but I would go for the win, I think that's what we need worse right now. You have to think 1 game at a time thinking more than that doesn't work in hockey!

Haha Sanford again, they have absolutely no confidence in Mason. Guess they shouldn't but seriously they are just going to lean on Sanford until he's burnt out?

2-1 Columbus. It seems that every time people on HF predict a blowout for us it ends up being a low scoring loss.

Hmm.. I seem to remember a certain Chicago game where almost everybody predicted a blowout loss for Edmonton and the final score was 9-2 Edmonton.

That being said, the Oilers win but close. 3-2.

This could be a huge disappointment.

But i don't think so, we're great at home, CBJ just played last night, they probably didn't sleep well last night because of the wind and it's Columbus.

Arniel's job relies on scraping out every point after the brutal start so I doubt he's much of a gambling man right now.

Dorsett is freaking lucky Hall is out with an injury or he'd get a good revenge beat down.

Good point with the wind. Travel may have been bad for this game. Flights in wind like this could be turbulent, especially over such a short distance. If they bused Highway 2 had some closures today.

Granted there were extenuating circumstances but...

Sanford 4-2-2 1.76 GAA 0.937 SV%
Mason 3-12-1 3.63 GAA 0.875 SV%

Who would you start?

Mason completely sucked in Edmonton last year.

Why the hate for Dubnyk? They have to play him (I'd like to see him get 30-35 games) and when better than tonight?

Have you not heard Khabbi is our MVP and the most important part of the team moving forward in the rebuild.

If you look up and down their line up... its pretty good. If Huselius is back in, too.. then I wouldn't expect this to be an easy night. They have plenty of depth which is new for them, maybe just a bit of growing pains. I suppose they could use another good D and some reliability in nets, though. Maybe the kids can victimize the G-unit.

I can never understand flying to and from Calgary. By the time somebody is at International airport and checked in I'd have driven all the way to Red Deer. I'd be on Deerfoot trail passing the Calgary international as the plane touches down.
