Following last night’s … ass kicking? Is there another word for what happened? … Columbus set a franchise record for goals scored and handed Montreal their worst ever defeat. Seriously.

We literally took Montreal, threw them in a dumpster, and set them on fire. That was fun.

SO. Tonight, looking to put that behind them (Nick Foligno echoed this immediately in his postgame comments), the Jackets face the Blues.

I am listing Bob to play until he doesn’t. He’s on fire this season.

Go Jackets.
