12/26/10 v Tampa Bay Lightning ~ Final 3-2 TB in OT

Need I even say anything about Tampa Bay except that Thrashers, TB and Capitals are playing Leap Frog for 1st place in the East.  Us and Capitals have been bouncing back and fourth in 1st but TB was tied with us entering this game. 

Last 10: Tampa Bay 6-2-2; Atlanta 5-3-2  –  This is the fourth of six meetings, Tampa Bay enters with a 3-0 record against Atlanta following a 2-1 shootout victory on Dec. 15 at the St. Pete Times Forum.   

Tonite was a constant struggle, and Thrashers lost 3-2 in OT, our 9th loss to the Lightning.   End of 3rd period, Buff finally lost his cool and drew a penalty and we went into OT with only 58 seconds of 3 on 3, and as soon as it was 4 on three, Malone was right in there, they pinched in, and………3-2 TB. 

Seems nobody likes St. Louis except his teammates, and that includes Heat Meiser.  Great sign. 

And, this would be the little stump, St. Louis! 

I don’t know what it is, I keep thinking I’m at an Atlanta Thrashers game (I *am* in Atlanta, after all), but I see other jerseys all over the place, no matter who is playing.

I love seeing a goalie work like this, unfortunately we didn’t score on this scramble

Just trying to get thru one of something like 72 face offs in this game, without TB starting something.  

Net was off the moorings a few times tonite

This was the final catalyst for Buff, a face washing, and you just don’t wash Buff’s face!

The hard work paid off and we’re now tied at 2-2

You can come out of the net now, Ellis

This was Big Buff’s blowup
Buff’s look of disbelief and frustration, and he goes to the sin bin and we lose the game in OT
