agree 100% he looked amazing especially on that backhand attempt i thought he would score there..

wow great comeback.. i said it before the 3rd period started "I believe they will come back. This team never gives up anymore"

great finish especially Lehtonen he made some huge saves in the 3rd and OT

Definitely -- I hope Slater is alright. We really missed him on the PK, though Stuart and Reasoner filled in nicely for him, considering the absence of Perrin and Slater.

I think we've found our replacement for Christensen. Connoley should get a game for that elbow. But he won't.

I saw a glimpse of that in the OT...I see the skillset is definitely there. Hopefully they can work on his D

Sucks about Slater--- hope he bounces back Monday.

Man, Buffalo fans must be pissed.

What a finish


Suprised Kozlov didn't do his usual move.. no longer 100% this season in shootouts. Good to see Sterling get a chance and make the most of it...

Lethonen made some huge saves in the closing few minutes of the 3rd period, that was great.

What killed me was all the booing I heard. If it was just fans being fans, booing when something goes against their team (right or wrong); that's cool. I have no problem with that, there's a good reason why they're called fans; just shortened from fanatic.

But if their booing because they actually believed the plays should have been called the other way: like Reasoner's goal or the Connolly penalty (which he got lucky by not being given a major for that). Well, the only word that comes to mind is ********.

Hell, I'm a homer when it comes to the Thrashers (we all are really). But at least I'm honest about the outcome of plays, even if I hate what happened. Booing just seems like sour grapes, don't do it myself and don't see the reason for it. But to each his/her own I guess, even if it makes little or no sense.

They're Buffalo fans. What do you expect?

What got me about the shootout is that Peverley did almost the same move and went to the same area as Kozlov did, knowing Lalime made the save once before. And really, Kozlov followed Little's lead. It didn't make any sense.

Sterling was smart, as he went the opposite way and tricked Lalime, making him think he was going low, then lifting it high. Good goal for Sterling.

I'm not big on labeling a fan base like that, not fair to all the good fans just because some are a-holes. Every team everywhere has a mix of both.

But then again, I'm human; prone to some un-rational generalizations (especially in the name of fandom). Probably a bit sour from when I went to a Sabres-Thrashers game a few years back, and most of the Sabres fans there were horribly obnoxious. And even that is being very kind. Couldn't even blame that one on youth, all of those guys were at least in their 30s (some likely in their 40s). Usually I don't give a crap if other fans are a bit mouthy, kinda adds a little spice when you go to a game. But this was really over the top.

I didn't realize the Sabres were such a dirty--err gritty-- team.

I for one absolutely loved it when Perrin flattened Connolly. He deserved far worse, and hopefully he'll get it from the NHL.

Truthfully, the Thrashers are a team playing for themselves right now, and playing for pride. Winning the game is not the only way to have pride. Standing up to goonery like Connolly's elbow to Slater's head is another way to have pride for yourselves. Perrin did that, and if it had cost us the game, I would still have loved it.

Just watched the game (I babysat my brothers kids). Wow! To comeback like that without our best player, on the road, is just awesome.

Keep it going. We have 2 back to backs next week.

Oh, for the love of... Slater was the one who took a run at Connolly!

Connolly looked up and saw him coming at the last second, and put his arm up to protect his head (which is pretty darn understandable for a guy with a multiple concussion history), and Slater skated at full speed into Connolly's arm.

Yeah, Connolly's not supposed to get his arms up, and he got the two minutes he deserved. But "goonery"? On a play that consisted of Connolly trying to protect himself from a hit? Get real.

This is hockey, and Slater was about to put a clean hit on him.

You can't just throw an elbow in someone's face because you don't want to take a hit. It was a clear intent to injure, and should have gotten him 5 minutes and a game misconduct. Hopefully he hears from the league about that hit on Monday.

Yeah, you're right. Slater could have really hurt Connolly's elbow with his head. I expect to see the NHL suspend Slater, once he recovers from his concussion.

Connolly is absolutely not supposed to throw an elbow at a guy's head. Period.

Disagree. To me it looked like a clear intent to protect his (oft-concussed) head from an oncoming collision.

Yeah, he's not supposed to get his elbows up, and yeah it's a penalty. Two minutes, which he deserved.

But "goonery"? Misconducts? Suspensions? Are you guys serious?

It was split-second instinctive reaction. See hit coming, protect head. There was no time to pre-meditate any intent to injure.

Aside from which, Connolly isn't a dirty player, and hasn't been his whole career.

Call up someone else.


My prediction: We win 4-1. Lehtonen goalies and makes like 30 saves. Little with 1, Peverley with 2, Slater with 1.

Slater has been playing very good as of late. He has always been a great 4th liner. He might be the best 4th liner in the NHL he is the type of player that can get you 10+ goals on the 4th line.
shoot out winner brett sterling man what a good game, people were chirping me when they scored 3 in a row, man i couldnt help it when they won, i thought i was gonna get knocked out lol, i just noticed how bad colby armstrong is, hes so lazy and weak on the puck, awesome nite though!!!

I'm going to laugh if this excuse is used by Pronger (for example) from now on. "No, it's not my fault, HE skated into ME!" Do you realize how dumb that sounds?

I disagree that it's "goonery" -- it's a natural reaction that you, I, or anyone else would have done in a situation like that. But to say he deserved only two minutes is lacking in objectivity. Pronger has been suspended for that, and less. I won't go so far as to say I expect a suspension, but I will say Connolly deserved at least five minutes.

I see a lot of opinions on the Slater hit. I do not think it was with an intent to injure. Slater was going for a hit, and an elbow came up. 2 minutes. Nothing more. I hate it for Slater, but I have seen a lot worse elbows then the one he received. Connolly probably made a reactive move to protect himself. It was wrong, but he was not trying to injure.

I like how Perrin responded at the start of the third. That is why this team is winning. Standing up for each other.

It was nice to see, but would have been much nicer had the response been immediate instead of delayed. Still, sticking up for each other is indeed one reason why this team has made such a startling recovery since the beginning of the year.

Don't get too used to winning, folks. We've got a 5 game winning streak. We all know what happens now.

Also, Perrin has played like a madman since being waived. THIS is the Perrin I remember from last year.
