Well, here you go.
Bobcat’s Post Game Notes, Game 10
Jackets lose, 7-1 against the New Jersey Devils.
-A matinee matchup with a division rival before we go out to Europe. Hopefully this bad stretch of hockey is just saving our energy for a back-to-back against the reigning, defending Stanley Cup champions in a foreign land. I don't know what to believe.
-First period has been a snoozefest for the first 15 minutes of time off the clock. We certainly haven’t been making Elvis’s life easy, but he’s held very firm so far.
-Fabian Zetterlund takes a one-timer that blows by Elvis for his first goal of the year. If there’s anyone to blame here, it’s Redbeard for duffing the puck in the neutral zone, and his subsequent lack of effort on defense.
-Out of every team that I expected to boo Johnny Hockey every time he touches the puck, I did not expect the Devils to be one of them. Still mad about not getting him, huh?
-The Prudential Center is so dead that the posts are louder than I’ve ever heard them before.
-…David Jiricek puts in the bare minimum effort to stop Nico Hischier, and Nico scores.
-SEVENTEEN SECONDS LATER, Ryan Graves takes a harmless slap shot that blows by him, and all I can do is laugh to numb the pain. I’m losing it, doc.
-A beautiful pass from Cole Sillinger to Yegor Chinakhov puts us back to within two. Normally I’d be yelling about Jäegermeister mixed with an energy drink right now, but with what the score looks like right now, it would be very off-color.
-Mathieu Olivier starts a scrum to at least try to show SOME life, but nothing comes of it.
-Laine gives up the puck, Tomas Tatar all alone, but Gavi comes back from behind and diffuses the situation like a pro. This is why I love him.
-Nyquist has his head so far up his *ss it’s coming out the top again. What is this defensive effort? This is why I want him gone at the deadline, if not earlier.
-John Marino trips up Boone Jenner and gets sent to the Box. Here’s where we give up a shorty.
-…We did even worse. We had two minutes where we had more men than the other team, and didn’t register a SINGLE shot on goal.
-Nathan Bastian slashes Elvis, and the ENTIRE team descends upon him to kick his *ss (and rightfully so). By the end, Bastian gets sent off for slashing, and… Elvis gets a roughing call? What? 4-on-4 time, but I don’t see why.
-John Marino takes away the puck from someone, Elvis gets a piece of the resulting shot, and it bounces in. If I wake up tomorrow and see in the news that Elvis murdered half the team, I would not be surprised in the slightest.
-It’s rather obvious that Elvis’s hand is hurting. We gotta get him out of there.
-Boone gets sent off for… something? and we give up a power play goal. 5-1 now. Time to shut her down.
-..not fun. Not fun at all.
