  1. January 17, 2009: Nashville Predators

    Wow, this was one of the most impressive games the Thrashers played all year! Putting two games back to back from Saturdays performance, the Thrashers are looking better. Hopefully they can continue to improve.

    To start off the game, in the first period, at 2:07 E. Perrin (ATL) scored his 4th goal on the season on the breakaway to give the Thrashers the early lead at 1-0. Then at 6:48, C. Armstrong (ATL) scored his 13th goal of the season at even strength from Z. Bogosian (ATL), ...
  2. My Quest to be a Mike Piazza Collector

    I have never been much of an individual player collector before, but the new super collector status has sparked my curiousity. Why Mike Piazza, well I am a NY Mets fan to begin with.

In my hands were a number of Roy and Brodeur base and inserts cards, all of which were on my want list!

    It took me a good 2 hours to ticked them all off of my list and then put them neatly in my PC folders. In a nutshell, ...
  4. January 16, 2009: Toronto Maple Leafs

    This is one of the best games the Thrashers played all year. With the return of Zach Bogosian and Peverley's second game as a Thrasher, things were starting to look up.

    In the opening frame, the Leafs got on top at 12:53 with a goal by L. Stempniak (TOR), his 7th on the season on the Leafs power play. Then at 18:44, the Leafs added another goal to the 1-0 lead by D. Moore (TOR), his 9th on the year to make it 2-0. Almost instantly, N. Hagman (TOR) added his 13th goal on the season ...
