Thrashers vs Sharks...chomp chomp

So the San Jose sharks come to town to face the Thrashers. They are usually a frightening opponent. If they aren't scary enough, they were fueled by the rage of being beaten by Tampa Bay the previous night. Uh-oh.

Pavelec had a less than stellar night Thursday, so Coach Anderson decided to put in the Moose. I didn't agree with his decision, I'm sure he cares. I mean it's not like he coached Pavelec for 2 years and coached him into a Calder Cup victory and probably knows exactly what the goaltender needs. So the Moose is in.

I made this fabu sign! I wanted to be on the Sharks side taking pics though. I don't think they agreed with the level of fabu.

Warm ups!

My buddy Michelle took this pic of me and my sign. Damn it Demers, move your big head.

The boys warming up.

Jody Shelley is a BAAAD man!

Hey baby, what's up Jumbo Joe? He really loves my sign.


But of course if you follow this blog, you know there is only one fantastical puck-stopping Kazakh reason I am down on the enemy side.

Evgeni Nabokov

Moose: Hey Evgeni, what's up? Did you see my girl's sign?
Nabby: Da
Moose: Pretty funny, huh? Her signs rock.
Nabby: Net
Moose: Lighten up Nabby!
Nabby: You will lose.
Moose: You are an ass.
Nabby: I must break you.
Moose: He's not human. He's like a piece of iron.
(kudos to those who recognize those last few quotes)

So lets just go on and get the Nabby show out of the way.

Nabby does NOT like my sign.

Good shot of Nabby's mask except for that stupid glare.

The Nabby Glare. I love it.

Nabby warming up in the net.

Another good mask shot.

Now for Nabby's buddies.

Dan Boyle

Jumbo Joe Thorton.

Dany Heatley, Atlanta's prodigal son returns. There are two camps on the subject of Dany Heatley. One side hates him and boos him any time he comes to town. The other side don't. There were even people with signs that said "We miss you Danny." I am a boo'er. I have to have someone to dislike. My dislike comes from backhanded comments he made about Atlanta when he went to Ottawa. This stung after the way the fans rallied around him after the Snyder tragedy. I have no ill feelings regarding the tragedy itself. So I thoroughly enjoyed chanting "You suck Heatley" clap-clap-clapclapclap. I did NOT join in on the "Drive home safely" clap-clap-clapclapclap chant. That is vile and disrespectful.

Manny Malhotra where have you been all of my life?? Manny just became a blip on my radar.

More Manny.

Hainsey loved my sign. I can tell.

Just in case you were wondering like we were...Who the hell IS Nabby's back-up this season?

Ryan Clowe

On to the game!

Tonight was part of Girls Hockey Weekend. Each of the players for the starting line up (including Sharks) skated out, then had a girl hockey player from the community skate out to met them. They ranged in ages from teeny tiny to teens. This is Moose and his girl. How cute?!?! He was smiling and talking to her the whole time.

Thrashers taking some early action to the Sharks.

Moose making a save.

Face off in the Thrashers' zone.

Nabby shooting the puck off to the side.

Eric Boulton and Brad Staubitz had a nasty little rumble. Brad took Eric down hard and fast.

Chaos in front of the Moose.

Back in the net, Moose!

Yet another face off in the Thrashers zone.

Another reason to hate Dany Heatly, he tried to break my Moose.

Sharks score. Vomit.

Second Period

Action in front of Nabby.

Coming out of the Sharks' zone.

In the second period the Sharks thought for sure they had their 4th goal. The net was dislodged when our own defenseman (I think it was Hainsey) came crashing into it. In the arena I didn't even realize a goal WAS a possibility. When I got home, I watched the replay, Sharks feed only. It was clearly a goal, you could see it on the camera, the issue was "when did the whistle blow." All of the camera angles in the world won't help with that because you need audio to hear the whistle. I thought the San Jose was going to go down to the ice with a gun, he lost his mind. Thank you Center Ice for replaying games!

Thrash was busy last night. Here he is delivering flowers.

After letting in another goal, Moose time was over. Poor Moose. A bad night combined with bad bounces and us putting it in our own damn net (Hainsey shot and Marty tipped it in). Wonder twin powers activate...Pavelec form of a goalie.

On the other end...
Nabby: Sunshine36616 I bow to you. You are the most awesome girl blogger on the planet and I even liked your sign.
Thanks Nabs.

Nabby likes the way you do that right thur.

Taking some action to Nabby.

Nabby tracking the puck.

Third period

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Evander Kane scores his 3rd NHL goal on the amazing Evgeni Nabokov and makes this game a 1 goal game!

Scary moment on the ice, Army took a stick or something to the face from Ryan Vesce.

In addition to delivering flowers, Thrash was bringing the bass. I was so excited when I turned around and saw it, I couldn't speak. I just grabbed Shauna, pointed and screamed "LOOK!!!"

My buddy Michelle took a picture of me taking a picture of Thrash.

More of Thrash and his drum.

Sit down asshole. There is no reason you need to stand for every play. Goals, fights, people in front of you standing, yes. When you hear rows and rows of people behind you screaming "SIT DOWN," STF down.

One of the final face offs of the game.

My favorite stretch, the Lean. He and Nitty do this.

Guess who else was watching the game? Perched up in the rafters in a suite (next to my buddy Michelle's suite) were Boris Valabik, Kari Lehtonen and Noah Welch.

Thrashers lose. More crazy bounces, more less than stellar goalie performances. We could have totally won this game, but oh well. Most disturbing is the loss of Ilya Kovalchuk in the first period. He took a puck off of the foot and didn't return. Coach Anderson said he was walking, but tenderly. He is supposed to see the doctor Monday. Good hockey vibes for Ilya!!

Thrashers lost 4-3...NOT4-2 San Jose. I think they were still pissed about that goal that got waved off.

what a great synopsis! I'm loving the commentary that you provided, and all on target, including the conversation about your sign, lol. I enjoyed getting your pictures, and I "LOVED" being there in the suite by the boys, BoBo drives me wild! The Army hit to the face was scary, but Moose going down, I didn't like at all. I was yelling don't you make me come down there you Shark punks, lol MOOOOOSE Now, onto next Thursday, and your poster of Mooselyn Monroe, and lighting up the Caps this time! It was fun and thanks for the photos you got me me and my one shot at fame in the suite, lol.
