Game Day: Flyers
As Ben Wright reminds us, the Thrashers actually have a chance to move from 11th to 6th place in the Eastern Conference with a win tonight against the Nitty-less Flyers.
Amazing that 2/3 of the way through the season, the playoff race is that close. The best news is that if the Thrashers do move up to 6th place, they will have at least one game in hand over 2 of the teams right behind them.
But they've got to win tonight for any of that to matter. If they don't then the 6th place Flyers will have a 3 point lead on them.
Time to make it count.
