The Thrashers CEO has just quit.
I didn't even think about this, so caught up was I in my hysteria about Ovechkin overtaking Kovy and Carolina winning, but the Thrashers are now in third place behind the Carolina Hurricanes and the Wasington Capitals. Ovechkin and the Caps have been on fire recently, and I expected this might happen. Another reason to win in Madison Square Garden tonight. And then again on Thursday. How can a team go from beating the Detroit Red Wings 5-1 one week to third place in the Southeast Division the next? How? Why?
