Do The Thrashers Have Large Talons?

Game 3: Kari, Kari, Kari!

One player has been carrying this team on his back. Kari Lehtonen. Three games and just two goals allowed in 9 regulation periods plus one 5 minute overtime. Wow, that's the kind of goaltending this franchise needs to make a huge improvement in the goals against department.

It looks like the offense may not be very consistent this year, but the defense will keep the team in games and give them an opportunity to steal some points (when has anyone ever been able two write that about the Thrashers--never!). Kozlov was the other hero with a terrific individual effort to give them the meager 1-0 that ended up being the final margin of victory.

Early on the Thrashers appear to be a copy of the 2005-06 NY Rangers who rode a hot Lundqvist and a resurgent Jagr to a playoff berth.

  • Friday night should be a smackdown. The Canes will come in angry and frustrated and the Thrash D will be more than willing to goad the Canes into brawls and bad penalties.

    Herr Professor. I'd like to propose an idea to you about a group blogging project that focuses on SE Division hockey. Send me an email at cason at email dot arizona dot edu and I'll respond with details.

  • I'm afraid that Carolina has zero chance now that superstar Frank Kaberle is out of your lineup. :)

    No it should be a great game, I would think Carolina players will be feeling a lot of pressure to win--whoever gets an early lead will have a big advantage IMO.
