Greg de Vries! Thou shouldst be living at this hour*. GAME DAY: Capitals
Were I a dramatic soul, I would say that tonight's game between our Thrashers and their feared/hated/exciting divisional rivals from DC is some kind of great reckoning, a do-or-die hell-raiser with the potential to be epic and memorable. You know the score: the Capitals are great, the Thrashers aren't, Boudreau knows the secrets of the spheres and their music, Anderson is his buddy and thus might be the only man who truly understands Crazy Bruce and how to beat him, etc.
The Caps have lost their last two games, and they'll probably never forgive themselves if they lose to us tonight, so expect them to come out with all guns blazing. Meanwhile, our best defenseman is out tonight. Filling in will be Chris Chelios, who has won 3 Stanley Cups and 3 Norris Trophies and is, at 48 years old, a man of enviable surfing skills.
Ondrej Pavelec is in goal. To quote Earth's greatest governor, "go Thrashers."
