Tonight I’m Gonna Rock You Tonight – March 7th

First Screen Viewing

Blue Jackets vs. Penguins – 6pm

Greg Wyshynski made a point the other day, and while I’m loathe to agree with him much, I have to admit I’ve been thinking about it. While it would be utterly hilarious if the Jackets were to plummet out of the playoff picture after their big going-for-it deadline, it would only serve to scare off GMs in the future from being aggressive. And you have to admit, if nothing else, when NHL GMs get aggressive it makes for excellent television. Then again, I also kind of love that Artemi Panarin has two goals in his last eight when they’ve needed him most, as he checks real estate listings for Miami Beach or Manhattan. Anyway, this isn’t make or break for the Jackets, but they currently don’t have a chair and a loss here puts them four points behind the Penguins with only 15 to go. And the Canes aren’t slowing down either, and should the Canadiens put one over the Sharks tonight as well they’ll be four points behind them as well. These two met right around the deadline in Columbus and the Pens thwacked them but good. Should be interesting.

Second Screen Viewing

Avalanche vs. Stars – 7:30

The Avs currently don’t have a chair either, and the Stars hold one of the wild card ones. But the Avs are right on their shoulders, so this one has some spice as well. Then again, the Avs just lost to the Ducks and needed overtime to get past the Wings at home, so they may be wheezing a bit here. The Stars meanwhile have won four of five, including somehow stopping the recent juggernaut of filth that is the St. Louis Blues. Will go a long way to sorting out the West’s picture.
