What a night in Blueland! Over 17,000 tickets sold and Thrash was finally released. Tonight Ron Hainsey got his first goal of the season. Eric Boulton dominated the ice, scoring not one, not two, but three goals! At two goals, he had his first ever multi-goal game, to elaborate on that, with no assists, he went ahead and made it his first ever hat trick and hats were flying onto the ice!
Evander Kane scored his 11th goal of the season to tie Dustin Byfuglien and, in the second Andrew Ladd did the same. Chris Thorburn was the other Thrash to score a goal this evening and the only NJ goal was scored by the “freelancer”, Ilya Kovalchuk.
Up in the northeast, the Boston Bruin decided to help us out just a tad and hung onto a 3-2 lead on the Washington Capitals, placing the Thrashers alone in first place in the Southeast Division!
Here are a few things you might currently be pondering:
When is the next home game? Well, it is this upcoming Tuesday. Kids are out of school and it is just a few days before Christmas, you can have a late night weeknight. The Thrashers will be hosting the St. Louis Blues. This game will be $1 Concessions again as well.
