Game Thread #8 - Blue Jackets vs. Blues

Damn, Nicole. Damn. There is vomit and dookie everywhere.

Alright, here's the deal. I currently believe I am now in the beginning throes of some sort of Devil Flu. As such, tonight's game thread intro--complete with Crank Yankers homage in the intro--is going to be incredibly short.

The Blues are in town.

They are good.

They are starting their less-good goaltender, however.

We are very injured.

We have three guys making their season debut in Columbus, including David Savard, Tim Erixon (making his Jackets' debut), and Jonathan Audy-Marchessault (making his NHL debut). Side perk of Devil Flu: my fever hallucinations make it now very easy to spell Audy-Marchessault without looking it up. Boom. Roasted.

Sergei Bobrovsky is in net.

Our defense is, how you say, slightly less experienced than it was two nights ago.

Did I mention the Blues are really good?

Why yes, Grandma, I WOULD like to go with you to the fireworks factory.

[shakes head]


Enjoy the game folks. Damn, Nicole.
