Thrashers have won out last 8 of 9 games (including trumping Avs 3-2 on their ice on November 30th), looking to make this the 7th straight at home win, before another road trip next week.
As of 12/8/10: The Avs had been 10-1-1 in their last 12 games.
Attendance was 14,034 so it was was a wonderful turnout. “Iceman” Rawhide, AJC Thrashers Reporter, also had a group filling up an entire section!

A well played game, just not enough on behalf of the Thrashers, they looked a little rusty in the first period after being off for a few days. Couple of bad calls, one bouncing puck, and one puck stuck between refs feet when we were making a run for the goal allowing a turnover and Avs make use of that and score, one empty net, and the night ended at 4-2 Avs. Avs are a really tough team, and we knew that going in, but it was still an exciting one.

Anderson was very solid.
These kinds of things happened a few times, no calls by Refs!
This was the way the game ended, Refs finally started calling things at the end of the game. Here, the boys want to discuss it all.
