This is Geoff Sanderson as a Swift Current Bronco. He was an original Blue Jacket at the turn of the century and had a nice NHL career as a scorer. The Oilers could use a scorer but have been unable to add one in time for tonight’s game.
Tonight’s huge game.
The Blue Jackets and the Oilers are in a life and death struggle for the playoffs. A win tonight for the Oilers (in regulation) will put them safely inside the top 8 in the western conference, and a regulation loss means Saturday’s game against the Wild would be vital.
These games are huge because of the deadline, the closeness of the standings in the west and the jobs that are on the line in our town.
