Sorry for the lack of a blog Tuesday folks. I had a social media training session to attend and had to finish the Nik Antropov feature story.
I have been on Twitter for some time -ajcthrashers. There is also a Thrashers fan page on Facebook now – ajc thrashers. Any updates that I post on Twitter will automatically update the Facebook page. Of course, I will still be updating the blog as a first priority. I’ll put minor news in the comments field and, if big enough, I will update the blog post itself. I can also update Twitter and Facebook from my cell phone now – which means if I get news while driving and away from the laptop, I can post it quicker.
I told you I’m being dragged into the next century!
I thought there was some interesting stuff in the Antropov feature. Seems people have been giving him “crap” all his career to shoot more.
Let me know if you have suggestions on the next profile.
Came across an interesting stat when doing the preview for Thursday’s game in Vancouver. Want proof the Thrashers play stronger as the game goes on? The team’s shots on goal increase each period – 237, 259, 276. Perhaps not coincidentally, their goals scored also increase each period – 20, 26, 41.
I’ll have to check into that to see if coach John Anderson and the players have an explanation.
It appears there was some line juggling at Thrashers practice in Calgary before tonight’s game. Slava Kozlov is now with Max Afinogenov and Antropov. Ilya Kovlachuk is skating with Todd White and Bryan Little. I know Anderson likes to shake up the lines, so they don’t get stale. I can’t see breaking up the Russian Trio for any length of time. There is too much chemistry. Look no further than the no-look, cross-ice pass from Max to Kovy for the game-tying goal against Florida. Just my thought.
I will check back later after completing some much needed chores around the house.
