Hopefully we can put the ugliness of Wednesday's game behind us and move onto the next game. We already know Scooter will not be playing tonight, so Jason Krog has been called up to fill in tonight. Havelid will be back in the lineup tonight as well, but Vish is a GTD. No word (As of 11 am EST) on who's between the pipes tonight, but considering that Hi Bob has been going with the hot hand, I'd guess the Moose gets the start tonight (and I would not be surprised if he starts tomorrow night as well).
The Bolts have always given the Boys From Blueland a bit of trouble down there (Thrashers have a 6-10-3 mark at the SPTF), and tonight won't be any different. Holmqvist has been on a tear this month, going 6-1-0 with a GAA of 2.67 in seven starts.
While the team stepped up Wednesday coming back from a 2 goal deficit, there will be a deficit in leadership tonight with Scooter suspended. Kozzie, Bobby, and Hoss will have to fill that leadership void tonight. They'll need to step it up tonight, and those are the three I'm calling out for tonight's game.

Hopefully the team can build a little momentum here. Our PP vs the NHL's worst PK!
Perfect time for Kozzie step in and contribute. I think that he didn't scored much, since his hattrick. Let's see what Jason Krog can do in the NHL.
