Live from Philips Arena: Thrashers vs. Lightning

We are settled in high above the ice about an hour before game time.

A couple of notes from last night’s game:

* Max Afinogenov extended his point streak to five games with his goal in the final seconds Saturday. He has nine points in the run – six goals and three assists.

*Rich Peverley had an assist to up his team leading total to 24 points – eight goals, 16 assists – in 19 games.

* The Thrashers hold a 28-19-10 edge in the all-time series against Tampa Bay. They are 18-6-5 at Philips Arena.

The gates are open and the crowd is starting to filter in.

Let’s get this blog posted. Perhaps I can answer some questions for the puck drops.

Chris thanks for the play by play. Is it just me or do kane, kozlov, and even Bolton seem to drop futuer back down the wall to help clear out pucks then kovy does?

On a seperate note, I am getting tired of falling behind, making a come back, only to fall short by a goal pattern.

Thanks for the tech input guys. As for the Chicken bit, it could have been either movie, but I was thinking the scene on the mound where Hector says his GF put a curse on his glove.

I feel Kovy is an offensive minded offensive player. If they would move the defensive zone a little closer to the offensive zone, then we could say Kovy is a offensive minded defensive player in the offensive zone.

I don’t get why this team is so up and down in its effort. No sustained sense of urgency, especially at home, at least until halfway through the third.

Someone on the team needs to fire his teamates up, don’t care who….

Kozzy and Antro get the assists. Kozzy got him the puck in front of the net and he snapped a wrister high to the stick side of Nit.
