Game 6/Calgary: MIA
I'll have to pass on tonight's Columbus Blue Jackets game - which is an intriguing one, seeing as the Flames are doing their darndest to avoid an early-season tailspin and probably aren't the happiest bunch after losing in Detroit last night.
As for the Blue Jackets, our boys are are still trying to find themselves while simultaneously working through a rough patch of injuries to Ethan Moreau, Kris Russell, Anton Stralman and Mike Commodore. And then there are the Scott Arniel media mind games, not ruling out putting replacement Kyle Wilson in on the second line in place of Derick Brassard. Don't forget that Steve Mason is really playing pretty well. (And I hope he holds up as his blue line is crumbling around him!)
As for me, I'll be at the Schott on a Date Night with Mrs. DBJ to see Roger Waters and his Bleeding Heart Band perform "The Wall" live. Anyone even close to my age will recognize that this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity...I never thought he was going to tour the show again. And to have it in Columbus - wow. How cool is that?
So carry on, everyone, and let me know how the game went in the comments.
(Actually, this post also recognizes that I completed my DBJ Wish List of NHL jerseys this week with a 1998-2006 Flames "flaming horse" jersey from eBay. Another win!)
