According to Thrashers coach John Anderson the MRI exam on Zach Bogosian’s thumb was negative. Bogosian and Anderson both told me his status for tonight’s game against the Sabres is a “game-time decision.” However, Bogosian’s name was not listed among the defensive pairings. That could change as Bogosian took part in the morning skate, but we shall see.
The line combinations for tonight:
Slava Kozlov and Eric Boulton are the scratches.
Johan Hedberg back in goal. He will face Ryan Miller (thanks to a Twitter follower @jeffgarrow for running into Miller downtown).
Clarke MacArthur admitted to being nervous about facing his old team tonight. He said he didn’t have time to catch up with any former mates last night, but hoped to do so tonight – after a Thrashers win.
That’s all the news from today’s skate.
I’m working on a big feature on Hedberg, so look for that in the next week or so.
