Thrash living dangerously and it caught of with them, Bolts (Craig) finally score on their 5th PP, 1-0 for them. 90% of the 1st period played in the Thrasher end...crap another penalty on Hossa crashing a guy that boarded him earlier...end 1st, Bolts still have over a minute of PP left...We're in big trouble if they don't get it together.
Well everyone, Im leaving as I can't stand to watch this horrific display any longer. I feel like Im watching the 1999-2000 Thrashers all over again. Lehtonen looks horrid, Kovy and Hossa can't capitalize at all and Hartley isn't helping anything at all.
Maybe we can get things in order for the next game.
Damn these penalties are pissing me off! We are currently #1 in times shorthanded and our PK slipped to "normal Thrashers level."
Sutton (33), Holik (26), Slater (24) and Mellanby (24) are topping the penalty happy Thrashers. I say that DW needs to get rid of Sutton, before it's going into the important phase of the season. Slater is doing his best impression of Savard.
Now they have 5 days (11/17 vs. Dallas) to refocus and work on penalties taken & goaltending.
Just watching the replay...how on earth does Tampa get a penalty shot AND a 5 minute major on the same play...and at the same time Vinny LeGoon gets nothing for thugging Sutton up from behind right afterwards?
Those refs had better get a talking to from the NHL, they made a couple of dumb decisions which cost the Thrashers any shot at coming back.

Ummm...Cuz them's the rules.
A minor penalty for slashing, the non-offending team gets the penalty shot. For a major or a match penalty (which Sutton got) the non offending team is awarded the 5 minutes AND the penalty shot. Think before you swing like that again, Sutton.
our road trip crew had a great time despite the loss....we were louder than the whole arena sometimes!! Could y'all hear any cheering for the Thrashers on the TV? If so, that woulda been us...18 in a suite!! hahahaha
