1a. With 2 points from the win, the Jackets jumped ahead of Detroit into 6th place in the Western Conference.
2. Where did all of this truculence come from? It was like both teams were just itching to pound on someone last night. Is there bad blood from the last game? Did Edmonton realize that their smaller, faster lineup wasn't going to get past the big boys in Ohio, so they tried to fight their way out? Odd, odd stuff.
2a. Blunden-Stortini - Not so good.
2b. Sestito-Strudwick - Much better. The Game Ops staff even got into it, offering a little "Spirit of Radio" by Rush in the background.
