What a great night this turned out to be!!! We were missing two of our keys~ Evander Kane and Nik Antropov, but we pulled off the win in a shootout. Pavelec was fantastic tonight. He’s really quite fun to watch. This game ended Bruins 3 game winning streak while also ending our 4 game losing streak.
Tonight was billed as “boxing night” due to the recent brawl on Boston’s ice resulting in Lucic being threatened with a suspension but being fined for a sucker punch and then an obscene gesture. This is what that brawl looked like, and this brings us to tonight’s game.

Goalie match up: Pavelec v Tim Thomas
I love Tim Thomas, I love Goalies, and as I’ve said before, I love everything about “Boston”, but when we meet them, business is business. Their blogs had made some not so nice comments about Thrashers right before tonights game as well, so, it was game on.
Thrashers Getting down to business early on
And, the wedding! Ther was actually a real wedding on the ice in first intermission.
And they both go down
Tonight it just wasn’t quite enough. Thrashers came to win tonight.
Thomas complained that Blue was getting in his kitchen
Pavelec flies across the crease
I so hope these guys aren’t going to represent “BlueLand”
Chara, wondering why his stick isn’t working tonight
