It Turns Out All They Needed Were Acme Glasses
I would photoshop a brown thrasher's head onto the Roadrunner, but you can use your imagination.
Yes, I'm disappointed. True, we didn't play as well as we did against Anaheim and Los Angeles.
But the Thrashers, again, played pretty well, and Governors of Hockey Ilya Kovalchuk and Bryan Little (not to mention Erik Christensen) continue to score like nobody's business. How about Kovy's pass to Little, and the goal that followed? Those two are made for each other.
Kari was flinging his glove hither and thither like a snow leopard poucing from rock to rock in front of a hockey net, blocking shots and hunting mountain goats.
Zach Bogosian is, I'm sorry, going to be a GREAT hockey player. He gets more confident every game. Handsome fella as well.
You can take pride in your Thrashers now. They seem to have gotten something together in terms of scoring, chemistry, and playing consistently throughout the game and from game to game. It's no bad thing that they lost this game deep into the longest and most insane shootout of all time.
