Thrashers didn’t make the playoffs this season, but they did get a say tonite in what happens with some other teams. Pavelec and the guys shut out and shut down “The King”, Henrik Lundqvist and Sean Avery is crying in his beer somewhere right now, along with Gaborik.
This was an away game, but it was so fantastic that it just has to be shared. It was a quiet first period, but the action sure picked up in the 2nd with two goals scored in 15 seconds, and Andrey Zubarev got his first NHL point. Great nite indeed.
Next, Friday night, April 8th, is the Canes, and hopefully a repeat performance, and Sunday is our season closer v Pens. Then, watching a lot of fun playoff games April-June and onto looking forward to next season!
