Well, for whatever it's worth, a couple of things about tonight's game:
1. Jeff Carter is back.
2. It's the last game in California the Blue Jackets have to play this season.
The Ducks have been a fairly hot team of late, with points in 10 of 12 games. Their top line is going again, and the Jackets will have their hands full with a depleted blue line. Marc Methot may be back tonight from the flu, but it's the flu, man. And it's Marc Methot.
At any rate, it's another 10 PM start for us, but at least it's Friday (you ain't got no job, you ain't got shit ta do!). Strap in and enjoy the ride!
