The Thrashers lost 6 to 3 yesterday to the Crapitals. Not without giving a valiant effort though. It was nice to see Colby Armstrong notch his 20th goal of the season. A career high for him that also gives the Thrashers 5 players with 20 or more goals on the season. If someone would have told me at the beginning of the season that the Thrashers would have 5 players with 20 goals I would never have believed them.
They get the chance to avenge their loss tomorrow night and possibly put a damper on Washington's hopes for finishing 2nd in the Conference. They are leading the Devils by only 2 points and it sure would be great if they could screw that up for them.
One point about yesterday's game.... It was interesting to see how effective the Capitals forechecking was in the beginning of the 3rd period. They completely shut the Thrashers offense down and in turn created some good scoring chances. It was also kind of shocking that the Captials scored 6 goals and none of them were from Ovechkin (he did however have 2 assists). 11 shots and not a single goal. Obviously it wasn't from a lack of trying.
With Washington being one of the best power play teams in the league, the Thrashers penalty kill is going to have to be better to stop the Crapitals from dumping on them again tomorrow night.
Welcome - First off, credit for this idea must be given to J.P. of Japers' Rink for his creation of Washington Hockey Daily. I liked the idea and thought the Thrashe...
