My Jackets and Hawks need to pick it up and get off the snide. Critical, critical game.
I think they will win, they need to, they have too.

Sorry, but I am so hoping the Preds knock out the Hawks, with or without Joey.

Well, we lose this one and the fat lady can start singing. It just pisses me off to see the Leafs really playing well and giving the Caps fits, while our CBJ are making it look easy for the Pens. Not that the Leafs are a bad team, but what the hell is wrong with the CBJ?

Never mind, don't answer that.

Just ****ing win!!

CBJ have made solid starts and then made some critical errors.
Goaltender misplaying puck, d joining rush and forwards not recognizing or reacting.

The margins are thin - it can turn around but it needs to start today.

Don't worry, we just need to wait for some bounces to go our way. Would be nice if the players would be a little bit pro-active in trying to get good bounces but, hey, what do I know?

Need to respond tonight in a big way or bust

I still don't get riding Carlsson when he's cost us in both games. Bob clearly isn't on the same page with that pair. Anyway, I'm feeling good about this one. 4-1 Jackets with Bob number one star. Momentum swings and we don't lose again this round. Count on it.

If we can just win these next two, we'll ensure the series comes back to Columbus for a potential series ending game 6 for both teams... that would be huge.

Everyone has their flaws and while he's been good at balancing it for most of the year, by nature Torts is a stubborn guy To me this is that Stubborn Torts on display and I don't think it's proving helpful in this series.

I wonder if Nuti is injured or Quincey is banged up or something because I don't get it. Harrington and Carlsson have cost us 3 goals so far and provided nothing else. Quincey is a veteran. Bob knows Quincey and Nuti and what they are going to do, he is visibly off and I think that has something to do with it. I thought Quincey has played well since the trade, he clears the net, plays with an edge and popped in a couple goals. This will be the head scratcher all summer if we don't pull this out. But I feel the forwards have outplayed Pitt and we just need one to go in early so everyone can exhale and play with the lead. We play way different with a lead than we do from behind. This team can't play from behind

Just think about this for a minute.... the Columbus Blue Jackets have two more playoff goals than the 3-time cup champion Blackhawks.

I'd be much happier with Nuti and Quincey out there. Yes, Quincey is not as fast as we'd like, but he knows how to handle playoff pressure. Yes, Nuti can pinch in at the wrong times, but he's really good at starting the offense with one quick pass.

The 2002 Red Wings dropped the first two games, at home, against Vancouver, and went on to win the Stanley Cup that year. By no means are we the 2002 Wings, but it's not time to panic yet, as you would read in the Dispatch or read on the Union Blue Facebook page. We are in this, we are playing much better than the result would indicate, we just need Vezina Bob today and to score first and we will get on a roll! Hoping the rain holds off, heading to the plaza party for some loud mouth soup at 3. We can do this!

I just want them to play like a 100+ point team. Win or lose they need to play like they belong. Some players need to show up at some point this spring, so today would be the perfect day for it.

I think Bob and Foligno both show up today and we get a W.

We can bemoan the craptactic third line d pairing or the lack of top-end scoring all we want, but if Bob continues to play like garbage in the playoffs, forget about it, this team won't win. Like it or not, the Jackets are more dependent on their goalie than almost any team in the playoffs.

Betting lines show Jackets favorites for game (-125=bet 125 to win 100).

https://sports.bovada.lv/hockey

Losers of 8 of last 9. Outscored 29-16 in that span. A huge turnaround needs to happen. Today. Or it's so over.
