    +++ Murray making the key save when we needed it.

    +++ Schultz/JJ/Pets: MONSTER game by all 3. Especially Pets/JJ.

    Look... our backs are against the wall and they win. That's huge. That is HUUUUGE. It's 1 game. All other teams won. We need to keep focus and moving forward. Keep focus and moving forward.

    The team has been really focused on defense after Dumo/Letang went down. You have to keep at it.

    + Simon. Incredible game. Anyone who isn't a believer should (re)watch every shift he took this game.
    - Murray Glove Hand Derp Club. This is what happens when a team targets 90% of their shots on his so-called weakness. Despite fairly good (actual) puck possession, the Jackets got very few shots actually on goal.

    That last goal was absolutely meaningless, but it made me so happy.

    That was a great team win. I can point out great performances (ZAR, McCann, Crosby, Hornqvist, Murray...I can go on) and bad performances (Riikola, Ruhwedel, Kessel overall had another dud), but what matters to me is that this team played like a team and won like that team. That's way more important than anything else.

    Told you they'd pull this one out.

    I don't think that EN should be unassisted, boys.

    lmao we're missing our only 2 good D-men, lose 2 more guys to dirty-ish plays, and beat a team that just sold out everything in a desperate bid to win their first playoff series. pretty funny.

    Hey, after being annoyed for a week that was a gutsy defensive effort.

    Let’s knock Columbus out as our mini-Cup.

    I remember those Dic Tarnstrom days when we sucked but went on a crazy run to end the season. Let's do that, let's go on a crazy run because we have nothing to lose at this point so why not? just go for it.

    Huge win on the road for the pens. I’m really liking the play of both McCann and Pettersson. Hopefully Rust and Chad aren’t hurt too bad, and with all of the moves CBJ has made it would be great if they miss the playoffs. Countdown to Gudbranson watch Friday night.

    I'm shocked. I thought for sure this would be a horrendous loss.

    Outside of a Great 20 minutes, a bad 20 minutes, and decent 20 minutes... they looked surprisingly good with the usual glaring issues.

    Man where has this Jack Johnson been all year? If Dumo and Letang come back, and he can keep up this level of play that'd be huge.

    Really nice job of bouncing back after the Philly game. Huge win on the road against the Blue Jackets. Johnson was pretty solid in his first return back there. Good win with a depleted d-corps.

    Hopefully Rust isn't hurt seriously and out long.

    Feels weird.

    McCann (and Bjugstad, who I still think will find his game here) for a wholly ineffective Brassard and Sheahan is a move so good it might actually negate the Gudbranson trade.

    Big W without Letang/Dumoulin/Maatta/Rust

    Hopefully Rust injury isn't long term.
