Why, we played the Canes just the other day, didn't we? We would have done an official game day post for Saturday's game, but your Chronicle editor decided to abandon the Internet this past weekend (every now and then it's good to exile yourself from the tyranny of computer screens) and the other typists here are simple derelicts.
The Thrashers won, though, so hooray! Goals from just about everyone, plus a Moose shutout, as you might have seen. Like I've said before, every time I officially give up hope on the Thrashers, they manage to win. Therefore I'll give up hope for tonight's game and the entire rest of the season, for Victory.
The New Jersey Devils and their exotic new pet Ilya Kovalchuk could have helped a Thrasher out last night by defeating the Philadelphia Flyers, but they failed comically (5-1 Flyers, though Kovy did score that one goal). These days the Thrashers are 2 points away from being tied with the Boston Bruins for the 8th seed. That's if the Bruins lose tonight, of course; they play Buffalo. Hooray?
