Keys to the Game
Atlanta MUST play a complete 60 minute game as they did against Tampa the other night. When this team puts together a complete 60 minute effort, they're one of the toughest teams in the league. However, this team's been playing pregnant lately, as they always seem to miss a period or two.

It begins at the blue line. Getting a solid effort from all three lines is a priority. The onus comes upon the third pairing, as Sopel and Oduya must be solid as the shutdown pair. Sopel's positioning has to be spot on all game since he's not the most fleet of foot. On the top pair, Toby needs to keep throwing shots on net. Some of this team's best scoring opportunities have come on Toby's shots. Byfuglien also has to snap his scoreless streak.

At forward, the loss of Jim Slater is really hurting the team. He brings a ton of energy up front as well as being one of the best faceoff winners in the NHL. I never thought I'd live to see the day where missing Jim Slater actually hurt this team, but they really need him to come back. The vet presence of Freddy Modin is also sorely missed, as he has one of the highest shooting percentages on the team.

Win One For THe Flipper!

Loving the "Atlanter" below Filubs. Well done Oneel.

Let's just get back to discussing the hockey.

Thrashers win 6-1.
Ron Hainsey scores 6 goals.



Edit: Game time on nhl.com says 7pm for me.

1/22: Rangers at Thrashers, 7:00PM



7:00PM, Philips Arena|680 AM/93.7 FM

Quote:
A quiet and quick practice today in Duluth.

* Andrew Ladd did not practice due to illness.

* Chris Thorburn did not practice. He was giving another another day off to rest an undisclosed injury.

* Evander Kane (mid-body), Jim Slater (IR, concussion) and Chris Mason (IR, knee) also did not skate.

* Fredrik Modin (mid-body) did skate as he makes his way back to a return to the lineup.

* With so many forwards out, defenseman Zach Bogosian skated as a forward.

* Goaltender Ondrej Pavelec will soon be sporting new equipment (once it gets broken in). He has new pads, blocker and glove that are a dark blue.

* Not that they mean much, but here are the practice lines:

Dawes-Peverley-Bergfors

Cormier-Little-Stewart

Boulton-Burmistrov-Modin

Bogosian-Stapleton-Antropov

The team (and community) looks to bounce back after losing 5 of their last 6 and any trust they had in the ownership group. They take on the New York Rangers, who are in similarly not-good straits after 2 wins in their last 6. The last matchup with the Broadway Blueshirts was a 6-4 win in October.


Just... win. **** ASG and win.

Oh and I'll be at this one. Didn't realize it was radio only, so I guess I got lucky there (I like to avoid streaming if necessary)

pretty smart if you ask me, get all of the NYR fans now living in ATL to the game...might as well get somebody in the building, since all of the former ATL fans thatve previously spent tens of thousands supporting the team wont come any more.

Yeah, and then the mod goes on to talk about how this is going to be the second time the NHL has failed in Atlanta. Sad when mods don't even to bother to learn the true story.

Perhaps you can tell us the true story? What is the reason there is no TV broadcast? I am completely out of the loop when it comes to Atlanta.

do you not realize it is very common to not have all 82 games televised? we have about 70 on local tv, usually it is games against western conference teams, so it is a little odd that a Rags game isnt on.

we arent the only team like that, around 10 teams dont have all 82 on local tv

Just one of the 12 or so games that aren't televised this year.

I'm going to have to disagree with you on this one. When a game is not televised locally, it is usually because it is a national broadcast (NBC/TSN/CBC). There are very few NHL teams who don't have some type of TV broadcast for all 82 games.

Just out of curiosity, what are the 10 teams you are referring to?
