The Thrashers practiced in Duluth Friday morning before leaving for Tampa Bay and a date with the Lightning Saturday.
The Thrashers are 1-2-2 against the Lightning this season, losing the last four games.
The good news: The Thrashers will enter the game tied for eighth in the Eastern Conference. They better news: They have two games in hand on the Rangers and three on the Canadiens, the teams that share their 66 points.
Everyone is here from the forwards and the lines remain the same as last night:
Orange: Bergfors-Antropov -Little
Light blue: Kane-Slater-Armstrong
Ron Hainsey, Johnny Oduya and Christoph Schubert did not practice. Coach John Anderson said no injuries, just maintenance days.
Anderson said Hedberg will start against Tampa on Saturday and did not rule out that he could start again on Sunday against Carolina.
The last piece of news: Niclas Bergfors has been credited with the Thrashers’ power-play goal in the second period Thursday. He had been originally credited with the goal, but following the game it was awarded to Nik Antropov. Another scoring change Friday gave the goal back to Bergfors.
