Eat Your Heart Out on a Plastic Tray


Which goes for me too, of course, because not so long ago I had pretty much resigned myself to finishing another playoffs-less season with loads and loads of losses.

Obviously the playoffs were out of the question a long time ago, but I'm more than thrilled to be proved wrong about the Thrashers' play in the last third of the season. This game was a splendid one for sure: stellar defensive play from everyone (Niclas who?*), Toby Enstrom is a god, Bryan Little is well on his way to scoring more than 30 goals this season, and of course the Czar is about to surpass everyone--with the exception of his great, goofy compatriot--in goal-scoring. All against an excellent team that defected from Atlanta to drill for black gold in Alberta. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

During his First Star of the Universe talk with microphone person Natalie Taylor, Kovy said that as bad as this season has been he genuinely believes the Thrashers are building serious momentum for next season. I think he may be right.

Also: We'd like to announce that Boris Valabik's new nickname is Fast Eddie. That is all.

*Come back soon, Nic!

I believe last night Boris almost skated the puck into the zone.

Thus earning the nickname Fast Eddie.

It doesn't take much with our group.

Aaron,

We can't take credit for that picture. I would have given credit when I used it, but I don't know who made it (obviously a Thrashers fan).

I simply "Googled" Crosby Cry Baby, and that is what came up.

I'm not sure who made it, but I know I'd seen it before Shooter used it...perhaps whoever makes the Kovalchuk Army shirts?
