A Nashville Weekend

Hey Jacket fans- tonight and tomorrow our CBJ skaters will be going head to head against the Nashville Predators. Tonight's game will be in Tennessee, and tomorrow's at home in Nationwide. No word on if the two teams will share a cab back to Columbus tomorrow morning.

The team played on Tuesday at home against the Blues. I had tickets to the game that I bought during the Dec. 26 24-hour sale. Half price tickets weren't enough to fill the arena, however. That was a tad disappointing. An division game, against a team the Jackets should('ve) been able to handle, 2 new coaches facing off... And still a ton of empty seats. So it goes, Jacket fans. If you didn't know it already, the Jackets lost in a shootout following 3 consecutive goals by Blues shooters. Zherdev and Vyborny were able to get one past Legace in the shootout, but Modin was not so lucky. The team was without Fedorov and Nash and Westcott, who are still 0ut with injuries. Carter was back though, and was a force to be reckoned with. The man knows how to be in the right place at the right time.

Following the game, Yoder and I stopped by the Arena Pub to attend the the Jackets post-game show. This was a neat experience. For anyone who's up for it, the post game show is free and hardly crowded. Plenty of seating was available and it's really easy to ask questions of the panel. Yoder and I both asked questions on-air. In addition, Gilbert Brule showed up, complete with arm candy, to join the panel. He also signed autographs on his way out. If you're enough of a Jackets fan that you're reading this, you should definitely check it out.

Jackets in Nashville tonight, and they'll have their hands full. We need to steal some points from the division in order to chase a playoff spot, so let's get a win.

I've always found the post-game radio show fairly well put together. We've attended many times, and been on the air a few times as well.

I agree with your assessment, Tyler: if you're enough of a fan to be reading a CBJ blog you should probably head on over to the show. Definitely worth it.
