Welp. That last game? It's stink still lingers.
First of all, my apologies for the lateness and shortness of this preview. Couldn't be helped. Sometimes real life and jobs get in the way.
At any rate, the Jackets get a couple more guys back as Calvert and Skille draw in. Some other moves with Michael Chaput going to Springfield and Adam Cracknell moving to center on the fourth line. Interesting. Also, Kevin Connauton gets his first start as a Blue Jacket.
I don't know what to say about this. After Tuesday, anyone telling you they have any barometer on this team right now is just kidding themselves. One school of thought says they'll come out buzzing, looking to make amends. One other school of thought says they're a fragile team that can be broken early if they give up a quick goal.
Who the hell knows?
