Lightning at. Thrashers 7PM - Back To Basics Edition



January 20th, 2011: 7:00PM @ Philips Arena

LIGHTNING (27-15-5) at THRASHERS (23-18-7)

TV: SUN (HD), FS-S (HD)

Last 10: Tampa Bay 6-4-0; Atlanta 4-5-1.

Season Series: This is the fifth of six meetings this season between the Southeast Division rivals. The Lightning have won each of the previous four matchups between the teams, who will wrap up their season series on Sunday.



Projected Lineups
Tampa Bay Lightning
Gagne-Stamkos-Downie
Malone-Lecavalier-St.Louis
Bergenheim-Moore-Purcel
Hall-Thompson-Tyrell

Hedman-Clark
Ohlund-Lundin
Jones-Kubina

Roloson
Ellis

Atlanta Thrashers
Ladd-Peverley-Bergfors
Cormier-Little-Stewart
Boulton-Burmistrov-Thorburn
Dawes-Stapleton-Antropov

Byfuglien-Enstrom
Hainsey-Meyer
Sopel-Oduya

Pavelec
Mannino


Big Story: Both teams are struggling to gain traction in a division that could be up for grabs. Last season, the Washington Capitals beat second-place Atlanta by an astounding 38 points to win their third straight Southeast Division crown. But so far this season, only nine points separate the first-place Lightning from the fourth-place Hurricanes. For Tampa Bay, a 5-4-0 record in the new year has been good enough to retain a one-point lead over the Caps for the division lead.

After enjoying a scorching November, Atlanta has failed to keep pace with the rest of the division, going 1-3-1 in their last five games.
"We knew we had the team to come back in these types of situations and we just stick with it and we finally got a break at the end," forward Bryan Little said. "Once we got that one goal, we thought we'd get another one."


Stat Pack: With one more goal, Little will pass Marc Savard for fifth on the Thrashers' all-time goal-scoring list. That feat would put him in the company of some accomplished scorers, including Ilya Kovalchuk, Dany Heatley and Marian Hossa.

Puck Drop: Despite the losing record against Tampa Bay in his first season as Thrashers coach, Ramsay is very familiar with the Lightning organization. He was an associate coach with the team from 2001-07, winning a Stanley Cup with the Lightning in 2004.



****ING WIN FOR ONCE!

Hopefully Kane is well enough. Maybe the new (kinda) guys will help out?

60 mins tonight or we lose. No other way.

GO THRASH

We really need to win this one. So, I'm expecting a loss. Something along the lines of:

Lightning - 4
Thrashers - 1

3 of the lightning goals will be on the PP.

We need a win.

I will be in attendance.

I want to see a good game.

I want to see two points collected.

I want to see Vinny Lecavelier cry.

Obviously this will be a test for our PK.

First weekday game in a while, would like to keep the 14k+ attendance streak going.

Man, it would be nice to beat the Lightning. It reminds me of when we used to play the Flyers.

Pavs has to be on his A game. Those top 6 in Tampa can rack up the goals. Shut them down and we should be ok.

I just hope we come out fast. Not a step behind the play, not in our own zone all the time, not exhausted by the 2nd period. Keep up the tempo.

That was the 4th line at the beginning of the year.

We could be invincible in the shootout...

Little/Stapleton/Dawes/Burmi

I like that as well, however, I guess this points to Kane being out.

Great top-line
Interested in seeing Cormier on the wing.
Burmi gets his security back
Gives Antro much needed rest only playing 8-10 mins.

The lines concern me a little! Keys to a win, have to stay out of the penalty box, have to have outstanding goaltending and have to play the full 60 minutes. Going to be a tough 2 pts. to get. Go Thrashers!

Upon further review...Not sure if I like the tiny framed scoring style of Dawes on the 4th line.
