Not a lot of time to post today, so let me just say this: If we can't beat the Columbus Blue Jackets, then what's left? WHAT'S LEFT?
This is officially an important game. Brad Winchester cannot be the best Oiler again tonight; it's time for our millionaires to put down their ruby-studded walking canes and octopus-and-melon-ceviche amuse bouches and earn their keep with some goddamned top-shelf hockey. We can't lose to the Blue Jackets. We just... can't.
It's also time for MacT to settle down the lines and let these guys find some confidence. Hemsky and Sykora can make out all they want on the power play. Even strength, it should be 94-10-83 all the way.
We know this team is solid, and we know they can win. Hopefully, tonight marks the beginning of a major reversal of fortune.
Once We Had Hope, Now We Have ... E?
