Game Preview #8 - A New Day Dawns
Thought it's hard to imagine John Tortorella has been able to do much of anything with the team yet, can the turn-around begin tonight?
"I want to see us play with some arrogance."
What other intro could I possibly write for this?
The Jackets are still winless, but things have definitely changed. Whether that will be for the better, no one really can say. We don't have any lineup information at this point, beyond that Sergei Bobrovsky is back in net tonight.
Minnesota is off to a solid start, with their loss in Anaheim the other night their only regulation blemish. Tonight marks just their second home game, as well.
Finally, this marks the first CBJ/Wild game since the 2009-10 season in which Todd Richards was not on either bench.
