A little traveling music for the Thrashers … and me.
The Thrashers leave today for road games at Carolina and Florida, and so do I. Yes, that’s right. The plan is to cover the Thrashers on the road for the rest of the [relevant] season. So look for blogs while the team is on the road as well as game stories and notebooks.
The Thrashers play the next four games against teams that currently trail them in the standings. Carolina (35 points), Florida (46), Toronto (41) and Tampa Bay (46). Three are road games against Southeast Division teams.
