What else could go wrong? Every time we ask ourselves that question, we get a new answer. Steve Mason is hurt. Allen York is starting. Shawn Hunwick--he of the hastily signed ATO contract--will be your backup tonight. Hunwick just finished up at the University of Michigan. So, if you're scoring at home, our two goalies tonight were both in college one year ago.
Should be awesome!
The Wings get Johan Franzen back from injury tonight, and the Jackets have allowed 13 goals in the past two games. Oh, and also, this game is on national TV on the NBC Sports network, so everyone should get to see the domination tonight first-hand. Let's hope there are enough Jackets fans in the building to convince a national audience that this is, in fact, in Columbus.
Enjoy the game!
