The Cannon Cast Episode 7: Blue Jackets-Lightning Preview Edition

It’s time for the PLAYOFFS

The playoffs are here, so it’s time for a preview episode from the The Cannon Cast, the Columbus Blue Jackets podcast from The Cannon! The Blue Jackets will take on the high-flying Tampa Bay Lightning, in a matchup most view as bug vs. windshield. We have some thoughts about that.

In this episode, we talk about:

  • Can we be optimistic?
  • What should we be optimistic about?
  • Is mental toughness enough against this Lightning team?
  • What will the CBJ have to do to win?
  • How much to we love Alexandre Texier?
  • Does Brandon Dubinsky deserve a spot in this lineup?
  • How much of a success was this season?
  • What are our predictions?/ a lot more.

Our theme music is the song “Green Eyes,” by Angela Perley and the Howlin’ Moons off of their album “Homemade Vision.” They’re a Columbus band who recently announced their upcoming album will be called 4:30, so go check them out at
