Playoff Gamethread #1: Blue Jackets at Lightning

Let’s strike the Lightning first

Welcome to the postseason!

If you’re new to The Cannon or just not a gamethread regular, here are some ground rules:

  • Gamethreads move fast, so it’s better on everyone’s systems to not post any pictures or GIFs. Unless the Jackets score a goal, in which case cannon pictures are appropriate. But (and thanks to stinerman for reminding me) they better be pictures of UNION cannons, not Confederate ones.
  • Keep the profanity to a minimum. It makes some users uncomfortable and it adds little to the conversation. I’m not looking to snap you on the knuckles with a ruler for it, just...take it easy, ok?
  • Personal attacks/threats/harassment directed at other commenters will be met with warnings, then suspensions, then bans.
  • We welcome fans of all teams. But if you’re going to just troll the Jackets, then I’m just going to ban you outright to avoid any future headache.
  • I hope none of these warnings are necessary. Sadly they have been in the past.
  • If you see something objectionable, don’t reply to it and make it worse. Just flag it and move on.
  • When in doubt, consult the SBNation Community Guidelines. Basically, just don’t be an asshole./

Let’s all enjoy this, and let’s go Jackets!
