Your weekly dose of Metropolitan action!

Happy New Year, ladies and gentlemen! We now have the answer to when the Blue Jackets will finally lose, it lasted a surprising 16 games, falling one short of our beloved Penguins NHL record. The streak ended via thrashing from a Metropolitan foe - the Washington Capitals. The Jackets are actually now on a losing streak, thanks to the New York Rangers epic comeback on Saturday night. Let's see if the Jackets can go on an extended losing streak to even out that winning streak.

***Game of the week! Definitely not the best match-up of the week, but I will be in attendance at Amalie Arena this Friday, so that makes my cut for game of the week! That is the night that the Tampa Bay Lightning will be retiring Martin St. Louis' #26 - the first number to get retired for that franchise. I will certainly looking forward to that, along with the return of the Penguins from their bye week.
