Every season, around half-way through, we look for VERSUS to make some amendments to their schedule. This is because of a game not looking as good as it would have at the start of the season, for whatever reason. St. Louis-Columbus is that matchup this year. With all due respect to Bethany and all the Blue Jacket fans, while your team is solid, it looks as if you got the short end of the stick, and it’s the NHL fans loss, as most of them will head to a potential playoff birth for the Jackets without having seen them.
What have the folks at VERSUS chosen in it’s place? Well, it’ll be a much better tilt between Alex Ovechkin and the Southeast Division-leading Washington Capitals taking on Zach Parise and the potentially Atlantic Division-leading (with a win tonight) New Jersey Devils. While again I feel sorry for the Blue Jackets and their great fans and their great arena, this a better choice.
Originally, the schedule for that week was St. Louis-Detroit on Monday night, Feb. 2, and Blues-Blue Jackets Tuesday night, Feb. 3. Did anyone really wanna see the Blues two nights in a row?
