Special Mini's Thrash Thrashers

The Good -

- Gerbe keying the early offense and being a pest
- Ennis keeps it rolling
- Nieds with two goals in a game? Planet ending?
- Lots of guys had a lot of jump tonight and it showed up on the scoresheet.
- O from the D -- Myers with three assists, Weber with a pair, Butler and Sekera one each. Myers was the best defenseman on the ice tonight.
- Mills on the breakaway and the penalty shot.
- Boyes was a two-way tank with a goal and saving at least two chances against.
- Connolly saved a goal, set the table on the first one and finished it off. He's getting better. Not to mentioned, he cranked one off the pipe on the 5-on-3
- Mancari with three points? In a game Nieds gets two... who'd a thought?
- Pominville's goal and solid two-way game... great little feed on the Connolly goal too.


The Bad -

- Montador cutting his hand. Last thing he needs is to have a problem with the stick.

The Ugly -

- Thrasher D was just a shambles. Bogosian had all sorts of problems.
- Classically, will they have anything left for tomorrow?

Thrashing the Thrashers

G:

Best offensive game of the season! (8 goals!)
Nieds with a pair!
3 point night for Mancari! (G, 2A)
Power Play strikes for three!
Great to see Hasek again.

B:

A few bad penalties.
The first Atlanta goal didn't seem to completely cross the line to me.

U:

Byfuglien whaling on Myers after Nieds scored his second.
Montardo getting his finger crushed by the door to the bench.
Bogosian swinging his stick at Ennis right before he scored.

The deceptively great: Tomorrow's late afternoon opponent still has a period (or more) left to play tonight and about 600 miles to travel.

A weird -- 8 goals for and Leo-Monty each wind up -1.
13 Sabres with at least one point, 7 had more than one....

No wonder why Atlanta's trying to dump Bogosian. He's clearly not even the same player he was 2 years ago, let alone a better one.

Good:

Complete effort by all the team, there was just about 10 minutes in the 2nd that they we're outplayed.
Mancari and Myers with 3 points
Weber with 5 points in his last 3.
Connolly create the 1st goal by dumping, pressing, hitting and passing, saved one and finally scored one on a pretty nice play.
Gerbe was pesty tonight, a goal, always under the nose of every Thrashers.

Bad: As usual i hate pointing bad on a great win but Miller 2 goals allowed we're lazy ones, bad angle cover, at least the team gave him 8.

I don't like the fact that Vanek is often getting caught on too long shifts, he often take a penalty for hooking because he is too tired to skate.

Ugly: Big Buff looked more like someone got bite by Buffy than anything
Atlanta defensive coverage
Craig Ramsey's nose

I'd take him here. Ruff could probably straighten him out and they'd have a wicked 2nd pairing RD behind Myers....

Gerbe's gonna be a stud.

Nieds, goals are coming in bunches, keep driving to the net.

Miller stopped them on 2 or 3 breakaways, 1 penalty shot, after giving up the softy to Coburn.

B

Hotlanta's defense

Harry Neale messing up Bogosian's name all night

Good:
- They brought tons of offense and didn't sacrifice too many bad defensive plays for it.
- Everyone had some jam in their game. They didn't win a ton of board battles, but at least they tried.
- Connolly had a great all-around game.
- A full team contribution on the scoresheet. It's always good to see both star players and grinders get points.

Bad:
- I hated Leopold tonight.
- Offsides, icing, cough puck up, offsides, icing, offsides, cough puck up, offsides... The flow of the game for a while was cringe worthy.
- Drop passes... Yuck. Stop it.

Ugly:
- Vanek is Ice... ****ing... Cold... I hope this doesn't last too long.
- Understandably, a lot of the Thrashers players were in horrible moods. This game might have crushed their playoff hopes.

Hamilton in the post-game presser asking Ruff about the goals against : "He'd want both of those back."

But both point out the breakaway and PS saves, plus the toughies in the slot.

------------------------------------------

Ruff - "The most energy I've felt in this building in a while..."


Praise for Poms burying the first chance.

I mean in the goal scoring department. He's been getting tons of good scoring chances lately, but he's been hitting tons of posts, crossbars, and shooting inches wide. Sort of reminds me of the beginning of the season for him.

Oh, right. Snakebitten no doubt. His game is at an all time high lately though so it looks like it's not getting to him IMO

He was a little snake-bit tonight.

I wouldn't call him "ice-cold."

I'd be worried if he wasn't working and generating chances, but he's creating plenty of chances. As long as he keeps doing what he's doing, they'll go in.
