|You pass it to me there and I'll shoot it blind...|
The ageless Jagr scored one he partially whiffed on, and Brandon Saad scored on a blind, backhand that he hit very hard it seemed out of pure frustration. That set the stage for a fun overtime, and then the shootout, where Barkov was the only scorer. Nonetheless, a good outcome for the CBJ by salvaging a late point.
The Jackets also ended up taking 6 of a possible 10 points in a five games in seven nights stretch, which is also very good. I thought the Jackets were playing their system well last night, and overall looked pretty good. They get a day off, and then they face the Bolts again in Nationwide, which ought to be a pretty fun game.
Our young, mobile defense continues to grow, and Torts continues to roll the forward lines to the extent practicable. Matt Calvert's absence is notable.
The grind continues, but the Jackets keep picking up points. That is a good way to go!
