Bizarro Game Day Matchup 28: Video Predators at Video Blue Jackets

The Video Blue Jackets have been offensively firing on all cylinders. They came into this tilt with the Video Predators having scored 14 goals in their last two fake games.

I was running a bit behind this morning, so I didn't take the time to do a complete overhaul of the Fake Preds' lineups. I made some cursory changes to the Fake Jackets' lineup, but not much. Without Video Juice, I went back to the old lineups of 22-7-61 / 18-17-19 up front, which means I didn't take the time to do the overhaul that Scott Arniel appears to have done. Hope that's OK with all of you...

Columbus scored early, and despite a pretty grinding second period, never really had to sweat this one. As always, video after the jump followed by some game notes. Enjoy!

Final: Blue Jackets 5, Predators 1 - Game Notes:

  • Three Stars: 3. James Wisniewski, 2. Ryan Johansen, 1. Mark Letestu
  • Much like their real-life counterparts, not much offense for the Predators. It wasn't my best overall defensive effort, but they just couldn't get many good chances on Video Curtis Sanford.
  • Back-to-back games with point goals for Video Wiz. Seriously, can some of that happen in real life? Wiz got his first goal of the season against the Real Preds. Just sayin'.
  • I believe I hit roughly 476 posts in this game. Who knows what the score could have been??

Enjoy the game!
