Ladies and gentlemen, for the 100th this season, let's get fired up for the Columbus Blue Jackets!
The Blue Jackets are boring and so hard to hate. They are just a bland, boring team that is so irrelevant. As Gallagher pointed out in the Game Time paper edition—paper publications aren't dead yet!—the BJs have been awful for years and have ... Rick Nash.
Earlier this season we had soccergate, quite possibly the most pointless controversy every. The Blues and the Wings have years upon years of heated games. The Blues and BJs? A soccer game. Guh.
If you remember, that was the game the Blues lost 8-1 and T.J. Oshie's ankle got a really bad break. Oshie is back that's kind of a big deal.
There's not really much to say here. The Blues need a win because, let's face it, they need to beat teams they should beat. Sure the Blues are only two points ahead of the BJs, but that's enough to show that the Blues are the better team.
It's a Saturday night. It's cold and there's snow in the forecast. Bundle up on the couch, get drunk and watch some pucks.
This is your GDT. Break shit.
