- Sharks beat the Capitals
- Coyotes beat the Thrashers
- Predators beat the Canucks
- Rangers beat the Kings in overtime
All told, Columbus lost a single percentage point of their playoff chances and are now down to 9.2%.
TONIGHT: I've been noticing that, as the days go on, the relative value of other teams' games drop and the value of CBJ wins increases that much more. So this whole, "You control your own destiny" notion is ringing true for the Blue Jackets. Let's look at the docket:
- Blue Jackets over the Blackhawks
- Ducks over the Wild
- Sabres over the Blues
No other game has the capacity to affect the CBJ more than 0.3%.
Simply put: WE. NEED. THIS. GAME. Time is running short, both on the playoff run but especially leading up to the February 28 NHL Trade Deadline.
