It's time to get off the snide right Wilderness? Nothing tastes better than a little home cooking! Tonight, the Blue Jackets of Columbus come to town to do battle at the X. The Wild of course are coming off a 2 game road trip and have lost 3 straight, most recently in a OT loss to the St. Louis Blues.
The Columbus Blue Jackets broke a 4 game snide of their own last night at home against the Dallas Stars. Rumor has it both teams were stranded overnight in Columbus due to inclement weather, unable to leave for their respective destinations until this morning.
Listen, we all know something needs to change. The top line is absolutely on fire and pretty much unstoppable most shifts. The falloff from there is dramatic and sometimes scary. Perhaps its chemistry, perhaps its heart, perhaps they all just figure the 98 million dollar man on the top line has it covered. Whatever the case is Coach Yeo needs to get their butts in gear, and their is absolutely no time better than the present.
