This wasn't the Capitals' loss. It was the Thrashers' win. I'd bet golden hogs that Puck Daddy didn't even watch the game.
Yes, the Thrashers let an early 3-0 lead slip. But unlike days past, when the Thrashers (and Kari Lehtonen, most prominently) would lose all confidence when they fell into a tied game, the fellers battled back and never once looked like they were ready to retreat and nod off.
Read what Colby Armstrong told Jeff Schultz. It's quoted in that there post below. He speaks truth.
Oh, the Thrashers beat the sexy Caps 7-4. No goals were scored by Ilya Kovalchuk. However, the Czar did have one beautiful set-up, pass, and assist. I need to find some Alka Seltzer.
UPDATE: As usual, the Pensblog gets it:
Colby Armstrong, wow. Thrashers stun the world.Amen, the Pensblog, amen.
