Without their home arenas and in-arena entertainment staff, NHL clubs have brought their goal-horn sound effects along with them into the bubble. In the case of the Columbus Blue Jackets, that means their offensive-to-all-things-living cannon blasts, which we heard during Sunday night’s game against Toronto.
Known Leafs-slayer Cam Atkinson cracked the shutout in the third period with this quick goal. (Cody Ceci, woof.)
Somewhat muffled in the aftermath was the sound of the Columbus cannon, which you can hear better here, if you want to:

This is, obviously, terrible news, though we are comforted that the sound seems to be much quieter than it would be back at Nationwide Arena.
Meanwhile, the Washington Capitals will not have their player-specific goal songs when they play Monday and beyond, so we’ll have to make do with a generic team-level song. That’s fine by me, as I don’t understand the music the kids these days are listening to. What’s wrong with a little Toad the Wet Sprocket anyway?!
