Game Thread #40 - Blue Jackets vs. Sharks

I remember back in February when the Blue Jackets showed up and humbled the Sharks. And, after Sunday's game, and with the way the Sharks are playing right now, I must admit that I'm a tiny bit terrified of what might happen tonight. The Sharks are coming off of a shoot-out loss that ended a seven-game winning streak. They're getting hot at the right time.

The Jackets may have already peaked and may be heading back down the other side of the mountain.

Bumps and bruises abound, with Dalton Prout being a game-time decision. Ryan Johansen and Nikita Nikitin are banged up, but playing tonight. Sergei Bobrovsky, of course, is in net.

Which team is going to show up tonight? I'll be watching with my hand over one eye in case it starts to get ugly.
