Veteran NHL defenseman Barret Jackman "totally should have had that" says woman in cheapest seats in building.

Despite his best efforts on the ice, Blues defenseman Barret Jackman had a hard time winning over all of the hockey expert fans in attendance last night.

St. Louis, Missouri - Despite being approximately 600 linear feet from the point where a puck skipped over the top of Blues defenseman Barret Jackman's stick blade and flipped over the blueline and out of the offensive zone, Stacy Berns of Fairview Heights, Illinois, stated with utmost certainty that the former Calder Trophy winner and veteran of over 550 NHL games, "totally should have had that," Friday night. The play resulted in Jackman recovering the puck, making an 80-foot pass onto the tape of a teammate and the Blues resuming their attack into the Nashville Predators' zone.

"See," said Berns, "He sucks. Jackman can't do anything."

Jackman, for his part, seemed unapologetic, saying, "That play happens constantly in hockey. Sometimes you get a bad hop and the puck jumps your stick. You just recover and start over. It happens to everyone."

Berns, despite paying only $10 for her seat deep in Section 337 from a ticket redistribution specialist not far from where she got off the Metrolink after her $4 ride from Swansea, Illinois, wasn't buying it. "You never see Alex Pietrangelo or Kevin Shattenkirk make a mistake like that.

Moments later, as a puck evaded Kevin Shattenkirk's stick deep in the offensive zone and quickly turned into an odd-man rush towards the Blues' zone, Berns yelled out, "You better not screw this up, Jackman!"

As Jackman broke up the two on one and chipped the puck safely out of his team's defensive zone, Berns stating exasperatedly, "Ohhh! Great pass, Jackman."

After the Blues overtime loss, Berns returned home via Metrolink, complaining about Barret Jackman's effort the entire ride. Jackman, after playing over 25 minutes in 34 shifts, including over three minutes in penalty killing situations and managing three shots on goal and finishing with an even rating, boarded a plane to go play Detroit's Red Wings tomorrow night.

"I don't know," said Jackman, "I guess I'll try to do better to make her happy tomorrow."
