It's official, the Thrashers has a WINNING STREAK (that means 3 wins in a row, lol). They have been playing brilliantly the last few games, and hopefully they can keep it up!

The first period got off to another great start, something the Thrashers have been doing well lately. At 5:02, E. Christensen (ATL) scored his 4th goal on the season, on the assist from rookie Z. Bogosian (ATL), giving his his 2nd in as many games. Soon after, at 6:26, C. Thorburn (ATL) scored his 5th goal on the year, with the assist from J. Slater (ATL), his 9th on the season, making the lead 2-0 Thrashers. The remainder of the period held no scoring action.

The middle frame was a bit of a slip by the Thrashers, as the Habs would slowly crawl back into the game. At 3:28 however, R. Peverley (ATL), the newly acquired Thrasher (who has been HOT), scored his 4th goal on the season opening the gap to 3-0 Thrashers. However, at 4:54, on the Montreal power play, M. Pacioretty (MON) scored his 3rd goal of the season closing the gap to 3-1. Then, almost immediately, S. Begin (MON) scored his 6th on the year to make it a one goal game at 3-2 Atlanta.

The third frame was very interesting. The Canadiens were fighting to tie the game and send it to overtime, but the Thrashers needed that extra tack on goal to make it tougher. At 8:55, Z. Bogosian (ATL) scored his 2nd goal on the year (also in as many games), to make the score 4-2 Thrashers. The score would also end that way, giving the Thrashers their third straight win.

The Thrashers improved to 17-25-5 on the year. Their next game is tomorrow, Jan. 21st as they travel to Philly to battle the Flyers at 7 P.M.
