Don’t Stop Believin’ – JACKETS WIN



If you had told me the Jackets would pull out a win with Mike Commodore, Jake Voracek, Marc Methot, and all-world Stevie Mason out of the lineup, AND a rookie goaltender making his first ever start in the NHL; I probably would have tried to give you a golden shower then light you on fire.


Danny Boy stops the infamous Claude Lemieux
The Jackets jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead on a Sharks turnover right to Willy and then Juice sprung Nash for a breakaway goal that made Nabokov just look stupid.We all knew the Sharks would come out hard after the first, and indeed they did. At some point Shelley and Boll finally faced off…

If you didn’t think the Sharks would score in the last 5 minutes to tie the game, you shouldn’t be a Jackets fan. Unlike the previous 3 games, the Jackets were able to rally and hold off the Sharks in regulation…OVERTIME

Joe Thorton almost ended it about 30 seconds into OT but RJ Umberger took it the other way and was able to get a shot off.

Only Jason Chimera would have missed this one
-Jackets were 0 for 1 on the power play, its okay because it’s supposed to be bad
-The PK’ers held the Sharks to 1 for 5 on the power play, not bad, I can actually handle that stat
-Mason on the IR, he can play Tuesday but won’t, LaCosta back in net
