Game 4 sure wasn’t fun. Neither was Game 3, come to think of it. Well hey, let’s look at the bright side: Game 5 is in Washington, where the Columbus Blue Jackets have literally never lost in the playoffs.
Instead of some kind of fancy stat breakdown showing what line sucked at 5-on-5 or further rehash the mess we watched last night, let’s move past it. Let’s look ahead. On to DC, as Bill Belichick might say.
We’ve watched four games of this series and it feels like we’ve seen almost everything. We know these teams and players. But it’s a best-of-three series now. Gut check time. Every possession carries monumental importance. Every shift is a battle. These are some of the biggest games in Blue Jackets history.
So naturally, I made a Bingo card. Let’s have some fun today. Leave your suggestions for spots in the comments. Personally, row N is looking pretty juicy for tomorrow.
