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), giving his his first assist on the year and first NHL point. This quickly made the game 2-0. Then at 10:48, I. Kovalchuk (ATL) came up with his 19th goal of the year at even strength to give the Thrashers a dominating 3-0 lead before first intermission; with yet another point for R. Peverley (ATL) on the assist from the nely aquired Thrasher.. Then, at 18:44, B. Little (ATL) scored his team leading 21st goal on the season to make it 4-0 Thrashers! What an amazing first period of the year, the best all season.

In the second period, the Thrashers quickly added to their lead with a goal from M. Schneider (ATL) at 2:06 to give him 4 on the season and the Thrashers a 5-0 lead. However, Nashville finally scored their first goal of the game with J. Tootoo's (NSH) 4th on the season at 4:49 in the period. Those 2 goals were all the scoring that occured during the second period.

The final period of play was yet another great sign for the visiting Thrashers. Z. Bogosian (ATL) led it off with a quick goal, his first NHL goal and 1st on the season at 1:51 to make it 6-1 Atlanta. Then, at 11:46, J. Slater (ATL), added his 5th goal of the season at 11:46 to give the Thrashers their 7th final goal on the night to make it 7-1. Before the period could expire, Nashville scored on S. Weber's (NSH) 14th goal of the season to make the final tally 7-2 Thrashers.

Overall, I was extremely pleased to see the Thrashers play so well. My two boys both tallied points, and had great nights. The Thrashers host the Montreal Canadians next, on the 20th at 7 P.M.
