Most people have reacted rationally to last night's nabbing of 1 point in an overtime loss. I'm proud to say our esteemed and award-winning commenters are among this fine, perceptive group (see here).
A small but vocal faction, however, won't shut the fuck up. Their ungrammatical whinging can be precisely summarized as, "Why didn't Kovy score, why didn't we win, our power play sucks forever, Kovy won't re-sign because we only got 1 point last night, the Andromeda Galaxy is hurtling towards us, etc."
Dudes. Calm down. 4-1-1 is a very good start. The Thrashers were sloppy and awkward as all hell last night, but our goalie nearly stole the whole game. Every now and then good teams don't show up to play but their goalie carries them to at least one point. The Thrashers will get their game--including their power play--back on track for the home-stand. For now let's be thankful that we have a goaltender who's capable of that kind of collective-ass-saving performance.
It wasn't just Pavelec, though. Our penalty kill continues to be phenomenal, and how many times in Thrashers history have you been able to say "Our goalie and our penalty kill saved the game" ? Hmm?
