The Atlanta Thrashers are hosting the NY Rangers tonight. After more pathetic behind-the-scenes distractions courtesy of our owners and more injury potentials, we are not even just looking at needing a win tonight but a straight up miracle. And while working this miracle, we need to be preparing to meet the Lightning less than 24 hours later in Tampa.
Bogosian is still practicing as a forward and, as of yesterday, Ladd was sick and Thorburn was hurt (in addition to the already injured players). Carolina plays Pittsburgh tonight which, typically would re-assure me, however, their loss to the NJ Devils the other night leaves me a little more than worried about our current position in the standings.
