GAME DAY: Lightning
This is a most important game because, uh...because...why, again? Let me check my Hockey Blogging Encyclopedia.
RIGHT. It's important because if the Bolts win they'll pull within striking distance of a playoff spot, and it's not like we need that kind of drama, right?
If we win, that puts serious distance not only between us and Tampa Bay, but between teams like the Rangers and Canadiens as well. If they lose tonight, that is (they're playing the Capitals and the Kings, respectively).
The Thrashers have not played very well against the Lighting this season. All the more reason to...what's the saying? Come out of the gate strong? Strongly come out of the gate? Come strongly out of the gate?
Anyway, they need to score some goals early and not look back. EVER. Because as Phife Dawg once said:
I never let a statue tell me how nice I am
Comin' with more hits than the Braves and the Yankees
Livin' mad phat like an oversized mam-pi
The wackest crews try to dis, it makes me laugh
When my track record's longer than a DC-20 aircraft
So next time that you think you want somethin' here
Make somethin' differ, take that garbage to St. Elsewhere
P.S. Oh yeah there's that whole Nittymaki thing. Kill the bitch!
