Afternoon Line

I WILL ALWAYS BELIEVE IN THE BLUE JACKETS. I MISS ARTEM ANISIMOV. MARK MY WORDS, COLUMBUS WILL RISE ONE DAY. The Blue Jackets haven’t lost in regulation (note, this is known as “Blackhawking”) since February 24, 10 games ago! (Nine of those games, insanely, have gone into overtime or a shootout.) Sergei Bobrovsky is second in the league with a save percentage of .932!

Sure, they may be in last place in the Central Division, and Sports Club Stats may estimate their playoff chances at a meager 9.1 percent, and their possession numbers might be pretty atrocious — but this is a team on the move, I just know it. And have you seen the cluster**** (edited) that is the Western Conference? The eight teams battling for the bottom three playoff spots are separated by just five points in the standings. I believe. Nashville, on the other hand? They’re also one of those eight teams, but more importantly, they’re just trying to move on from this atrocity.
