Alright, putting it quite simply, we need a win. We have been up against better teams and dominated the entire game for a win, we can do it again tonight. And, according to the Buffalo Sabres - Sabre Noise, the Atlanta Thrashers apparently have a fan base that has given up on them. So, let’s remind them again tonight.
Seven of the last 10 Thrasher games have ended with extra time. Just two nights ago, even after giving up a 2 goal lead, the Atlanta Thrashers came back to win it. I would like to say our fans are like our team. We get discouraged, we might even get caught throwing water bottles, but talk of giving up and it just isn’t in our vocabulary.
The Atlanta Thrashers are 4-1-1 in the last 6 games, coming off an amazing win at home against the #1 Philadelphia Flyers. The Buffalo Sabres are 4-2-1 coming off the 1-0 shutout loss against Cam Ward and the Carolina Hurricanes. Buffalo has not done a SINGLE thing I have asked them to do so far this season (most recently, beating the Carolina Hurricanes).
The Atlanta Thrashers sit just 4 points behind the Buffalo Sabres right now, eagerly looking to keep up the climb. While numerous players are stepping up to carry the team right now, there are still others in the wings. I am sure there isn’t a person other there connected to the Atlanta Thrashers who wouldn’t love to see the Thrashers take the win during regulation time.
