We have an opponent, and well, we know the enemy really well.
We played them six times this season, we beat them 8-2 the last time we played them in the Joe.
It’s the Detroit Red Wings.
The defending Stanley Cup Champs. What a way to enter our first playoff run!
The Jackets ended their season on a sour note, but our focus is now on the Wings and what we can do to beat them.
The Red Wings are one of the best hockey clubs in the NHL, they have built quite the franchise, and are a solid team.
I can’t think of a better situation to go into. The travel is perfect, no time change, short plane ride, and it couldn’t get much better.
It looks like Murray is going to be out for a while, Picard has been called up to take his place.
I can’t begin to tell you how proud I am of this hockey club.
So Jackets fans - there are tickets available to game 1 and game 2 in Detroit. Invade the Joe. Wear your BLUE, and cheer on your team as the puck drops on their first ever playoff game.
Me? I’ll be there for game 2.
Here’s our un-official schedule:
Thursday April 16th 7pm JLA in Detroit
Saturday April 18th 6pm JLA in Detroit
Tuesday April 21st 7pm NWA Columbus
Thursday April 23rd 7pm NWA Columbus
Saturday April 25th 6pm JLA Detroit
Monday April 27th TBD NWA Columbus
Wednesday April 29th TBD JLA Detroit
Let me know if you plan to attend any of the games whether in Detroit or in Columbus.
I’d also like to take this time and think about our old captain, Adam Foote. Thanks again for Umberger!
