The Blue Jackets meet the Sabres tonight. Here’s what I know at this moment:
We lost to them on a very last game of the season in the spring on Fan Appreciation night. I was full of that bravado…the “I’m a die-hard fan and bullet-proof” kind when I made a bet with Tim over at SabreNoise. I had to get a sharpie tattoo if the CBJ lost…and they did and I certainly did not. I have no excuse. I just didn’t want to. I finally paid up (with interest) over the summer at Cannon Fest, with Matt Wagner and Rick Gethin inking the Sabre logo on my Union Blue shoulder.
The Sabres have a losing streak going on. They’re looking to end that tonight. Tim certainly isn’t fearful of his team losing to our Beloved Union Blue, as the numbers and slow start will follow the CBJ everywhere. But, he better be afraid. Carter is out, but Wiz is back. Tuesday night, the whole team decided to come back. He should worry.
The CBJ need to take advantage of the defense issues with the Sabres and continue the solid forechecking and smart puck-management they showed against Detroit on Tuesday.
