Time is quickly winding down for the regular season.
With eight games to play, the Thrashers sit two points behind the Bruins (who have nine games left) and four points in back of the Flyers (who have no goalie).
While it may seem futile to hold out hope for a team who can't beat the Leafs to squeeze two more points out of a schedule including two games against the Caps and two against the Pens than the Bruins can over nine games, I just can't help it. It's mathematically possible, so I can't give up.
If the Thrashers could get points for Jimmy Slater's heroic efforts, we would be on top of all of the standings.
Come on, guys, win some games for Little Jimmy.
