Well, I had a very busy week last week, so i missed a few entries. But, they didnt play very well, so there isnt a need to type them up anyways.
However, they have ended their recent skid. Last night the Thrashers hosted the Colorado Avalanche.
Actually started off very well for the Thrashers, something that has plagued them all season. At 2:57, T. Enstrom (ATL) got his 2nd goal of the season short-handed on the Avs power play, making it 1-0 Atlanta. Then, at 4:07, I. Kovalchuk (ATL) scored his 31st goal on the season to make it 2-0 Thrashers early in the game. All of a sudden, M. Reasoner (ATL) scored his 10th goal on the year at 11:20 to make it a commanding 3-0 lead for the home team. However, just before the period expired at 18:32, M. Hejduk (COL) scored his 22nd on the year on the Colorado power play.
Not much happened till half way through the second. Again, M. Hejduk (COL) scored his 23rd goal on the year at 11:01 to make it 3-2 Thrashers. Then at 15:16 R. Peverley (ATL) scored his 7th on the season to make it 4-2 Atlanta.
Not much happened her, but it was very intense heading into the last few minutes of the game. Colorado decided to pull the goalie with a few minutes left in the game. Well, it paid off as C. Stewart (COL) scored his 9th on the year, as the sixth man, to cut it to 4-3 with only a little time left at 18:29 in the period. Once again, the Avs goalie heads off the ice for the extra skater, but the Thrashgers stopped the threat by winning the faceoff and keeping it out of their defensive zone.
Zach Bogosian: +1, 17:17 on ice, 1 shot, 3 hits given, 3 takeaways, 3 blocked shots
