So things went awry with DBJ watching CBJ game 8: Vancouver

Columbus 3 - Vancouver 1
3-5-0, 6 pts, 4th in Metropolitan Division, 10th in Eastern Conference
So...well...my family's weekend road trip to South Bend for the Notre Dame-Southern Cal game went a little longer than expected.  And with the babies vocally rejecting the idea of a five-plus hour car ride home, I listened to the XM Spa Channel instead of the Blue Jackets-Canucks game.  Thus, I don't have much to say about the game.

The Blue Jackets beat the Vancouver Canucks, 3-1, in regulation.  Marian Gaborik scored first.  R.J. Umberger scored second.  Ryan Johansen slid the dagger in with an empty netter at the end of the game.

I'm very, very pleased to see that Umberger got a goal.  It's clear that he's been trying hard, what with five fruitless shots last night against Washington.  I'll give the guy grief when he deserves it, and I'll be happy to offer the attaboy when he deserves it.  Today apparently was a good day.

Is it even worth a haiku?  Sure, why not.

The road proved too long
Umby scored a flippin' goal
And I missed it.  Sigh.
