This was a crucial, “must” win game for our Thrashers, to move back up into playoff position. Toby Enstrom was back in the line up tonite, as was Eric Boulton, who has been a healthy scratch for a few games. Both were anxious and glad to be back on the ice, as is evidenced below.
Thrashers win it in regulation, 3-2, and get the 2 points, thanks to a last minute goal by Evander Kane, keeping us from going into OT.

And, this idiot, down at the glass, VIDEOing (we’re prohibited from videoing) for about 15 minutes, also blocking the view of people behind him.
