Well, I decided to take after Nathan (garnett_21) and not post to my blog until the Thrashers won again, and well, it took a little while. But hey....WE WON!

The first period started off with a quick goal at 1:24 by G. Roberts (TAM), his 4th on the year giving the Lightning the early lead. And as most ATL fans know, if a game starts off this way, its usually not good! But then, at 9:52, C. Stuart (ATL) scored his 1st goal on the year, short-handed to give the Thrashers the 1-1 tie.

In the second period, the scoring got underway early as well. At 2:02, V. Kozlov (ATL) scored his 18th on the season at even strength to make it 2-1 Thrashers. That was all of the scoring in the second period.

In the final frame, S. Stamkos (TAM) had a penalty shot, which was blocked by goalie K. Lehtonen (ATL). Then, at 19:50, with the empty net for Tampa Bay, I. Kovalchul (ATL) picked up his 23rd goal on the season making it 3-1, and sealing the win for the Thrashers.

Next, the Chicago Blackhawks visit Philips Arena at 7:00 PM Wednesday, February 11.
