Game 38/Ottawa: My Take

The Columbus Blue Jackets closed out 2010 with an overtime win over the Ottawa Senators, 4-3, at Nationwide Arena.
  • Friday night.
  • Big home crowd - 17,652 attendees.
  • Wearing 3rd jerseys.
  • Steve Mason in goal.
  • Jackets win.
  • 2 points in the standings.
Can any more jinxes go down in one night?

NEXT UP: Sunday night in Nashville.  I don't care what the Preds' record - overall or recent - is.  It's a big game for the CBJ.

  1. Considering it was our 2nd game in as many nights (with a late night flight in the middle) I was fairly impressed. Even though we lost some steam in the 3rd, it was nice to see the guys smiling on the bench for most of the game. Having fun while winning is a big part of getting a team's mindset right. And I realize it's been awhile since I've mentioned this but last year Phoenix had 48 points through 38 games. That puts us only 5 points behind their pace for 4th place from last season. Not too bad considering the recent stumbles.
