Do the Atlanta Thrashers Still Play?

It's been like eighteen years since the last game. Legend has it that the Thrashers play the Carolina Hurricanes again tomorrow.

I'll believe it when I see it.

The Canes suffered another loss at the hands of the Washington Capitals last night: Ovechkin, Green, and Backstrom all scored goals, while Alexander Semin continued to urinate on everyone from a height of several miles by having a two-goal, five-point night.

Which means the Canes don't intend to lose two games in a row to the Caps and two games in a row to us in the space of a week. The funny thing is, though, they will. Hopefully. The Thrashers had better destroy them tomorrow night, and all Thrashers fans within a 30-mile radius need to come out to bay for blood at Philips Arena. The boys have a four game winning streak; if we win tomorrow night, I believe they'll have something historians and scientists call a "five game winning streak."

That would be nice.

I feel as anxious as you. Rest assured that this is the longest break in Thrashers games this season except for the All-Star weekend (which will in fact be one day longer. Christ!)

What about Thrashers fans in a 70 mile radius like me?

How weird is it that the Thrashers play CAR in consecutive games, but CAR had a WAS game sandwiched in between?

Which team does this help? ATL is fresh but perhaps rusty and CAR is not rusty but perhaps tired?
