Video

It's Blues vs. Blue Jackets. You know what that means? Keep your head up, Rick Nash. (Side note: I picked this version for another reason too: Look at the soft goals Mason allowed. Jeebus.)

That'll do for today. Brad's got something special for later and, of course, we will have road music and the GDT. Should be fun.
