What they said. Money quote:
The Thrashers played a strong physical game and kept the bulk of the play in Vancouver's end in the first and second periods and entered the third period with a 1-0 lead before Vancouver got back into it in the third. A power-play goal by the Canucks gave them life at 6:32 and five minutes later they pulled ahead 2-1. The good news for the Thrashers is that the Florida Panthers fell to Ottawa and the Hurricanes and Capitals were idle, leaving Atlanta tied for second in the Southeast and one point behind Washington. With two straight division games coming up the Thrashers have an opportunity to make up some ground.
