First! For the first time First!

Make it 15 in a row or whatever it is. Thrashers coming of of a big win. These are not the same Thrashers we've pounded in the past.

I think they will play Kalinski as the fourth line center instead of Cote in the lineup

Hopefully the new backup dominates the Thrash like the old backup. At least we have two lines for this one.

Lets keep the streak going against these guys. I seriously need a win to pick up my spirits too. Took a boot to the face yesterday in rugby and my cheekbone looks like it's trying to reach the roof. Would be nice to see our power play turn up, our defense to stop the puck actually getting to the net, For carter to put home some goal, for richie to set up some goals, for a giroux 5 point night, For JVR to bag his first ever hat-trick, For carcillo to throw a huge open ice hit, followed by destroying any thrasher in a fight, for pronger to be a +3 with 0 penalty minutes, for boosh to let up less than 2 goals.

Phew make it happen guys

Atlanta had a crazy game last night; they're going to come out flying.

Good luck. Heres to hoping that we can FINALLY beat you guys.

(Oh and get your attendance jokes in now. With the UGA game down the block it's going to be even worse than usual.)

Thanks MSE, great job as always.

These guys are gonna play hard. We have to bring our A game, no messing around.

I'm missing Niitty. He knew how to stop these guys!

Go Flyers!
I'm thinking Carter will get a goal.

Wait, can the new Mike Richards and the old Mike Richards even be in the same building at the same time without tearing a whole in the time/space continuum?


Please win guys!

Kalinski is given #38 which is a bit odd, because he had #37 in camp, did he not? Bartulis was originally #38.

One would think that Richards would explode, on impact.
