Well, well, well.
The Thrashers are strange birds indeed. They played what might be their finest game of the season last night, and actually have a chance to catch the 8th playoff seed.
I could list a lot of specific Good Things about last night's game, like Colby Armstrong going nuts and Nik Antropov being the ultra-solid player he's been all season, but I'll just leave it at this: I haven't seen the Thrashers play with that much confidence since the brave days down the stretch in '07.
Just as heartening was the big, noisy crowd. Again, shades of '07.
By all means, let the Thrashers take this one game at a time (that's the only way to win, after all). But let's do this. Let's creep up on the entire goddamned NHL.
ALSO: Looks like Boston won today. Not the greatest outcome for the Thrashers, but not an apocalyptic one either. Anyway...
