Thrashers-Bruins preview

Next for Thrashers

Who: vs. Bruins

When: 5 p.m. Sunday

TV; radio: None; 680

* The Thrashers go for their fifth straight victory in a non-televised game. It would be their longest since six straight wins March 6-16, 2009, the longest streak in franchise history.

* Entering Saturday, the Thrashers had the No. 3 power play in the NHL (23 of 94, 24.5 percent). The team’s penalty kill is 24th in the league (17 of 80, 78.8 percent) but has allowed only one goal in 16 chances over the past five games.

* Andrew Ladd leads the Thrashers in scoring with 24 points (eight goals, 16 assists).

* The Thrashers conclude a season-long six game homestand. Including the Bruins, four of the past five games were against teams currently in playoff positions.

* The Bruins, losers of three of their past four, are led by Nathan Horton and Milan Lucic (15 points).

Thrashers will teach the Atlanta Bruin bandwagoners that it’s time to put away the smelly old shirts and join the Boys of Blueland, much like they have done to the Wings and Habs wannabees.

This is about to be the best Thanksgiving of hockey ever!! Won’t be surprised to see attendance really soar after this rivalry weekend of college football is over.

I counted 112 Habs’ jerseys and 215 Wings’ jerseys in the dumpster outside Philips Arena. There is a change a coming, I can feel it. The wheels on the wagon need to be replaced, the bearings packed, the horses washed, because this wagon is going to start getting full! Mark my words!

why the heck is this game not on television? Come on. Lame. But anyway, Thrash are hot, gotta keep it going and take all the points on this homestand that we can. It will get tougher.
