Thrashers vs Blues...finally a win at home!

Is there any better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than in Blueland? I personally think not. This Sundays the St. Louis Blues came to town to challenge the Thrashers. Neither team has been doing great and both have been falling into a trap of slow starts in games.

I was in enemy territory again. I probably wouldn't have been but I promised my buddy over at that I would take some pictures of her and her fellow Blues lovers from I'm glad I was there though. I was excited to see Ty Conklin, plus I have some new loves now.

Warm ups!

I was excited to see Ty Conklin. I haven't gotten to see him play live in a few years.

Ron Hainsey stretching.

Conks warming up.

Cam Janssen likes his gum. He had a big wad of pink bubble gum that he vigorously chewed and blew big pink bubbles.

This guy was teaching his kids how to make the sign for a puck, unfortunately he was not doing it right and basically taught the kids an obscene gesture. Mason probably gave him a puck so he'd stop.

Roman Polak off in space.

Jay McClemment clearing the net.

Captain Eric Brewer and his buddies getting ready to take some shots.

Ty looking bad ass.

Mason took a few shots and skated on over out of the way. He had the night off. Conks had this shit handled.

I don't think I had ANY idea how stinking adorable TJ Oshie is. I mean he is like anime cute. He is working hard to scoop up a puck and give it to the little kid next to me. TJ looks about the same age as the grade schooler he gave the puck to.

Extreme close up! I want to give him a juice box, some animal crackers and put him up on a shelf somewhere.

Conks working on his Conk Block.

First period

Opening face off

Conks is a feisty little (well not so little) goalie. Also I noticed he never drank from that bottle, only sprayed his face. He drank from the bottle on the bench.

Conks tracking the puck.

Conk Block! You can see the puck in the red circle. Conks totally robbed Pevs.

More puck tracking.

Conklin doing his majestic stretch.

Look at little baby Kaner getting into a scrum!

Second Period!

Welcome to my side of the rink, Moose!

Moose drinks a lot from the bottle.

Brad Boyes putting a shot on the net.

Moose having a little shower.

"Grrrr, this is my mean face."

Moose says no.

Chaos in front of my Moose! This net is off the moorings. Get off my Moose!

The score remained 0-0 into the 2nd period. That's what happens when you have two teams that have been having slow crappy starts. About 7 minutes into the 2nd period David Perron had a breakaway but was tripped up by Hainsey and slid into a poke-checking Moose busting his mask off. The puck came back out and Andy McDonald put it in the open net.

Friend of the blog and bad-assed photographer extraordinaire Mr. Fred caught this shot. Terrifying! It always scares me to see goalies' masks flying off, especially when it's my Moose. Not in the face!!

The ref giving Moose his mask back. I believe the Sponge Bob Moose Pants mask was damaged. I came home and was watching the replay of OT and the shoot out and noticed Moose was wearing an older mask.

Moose and Hainsey watching the replay trying to figure out just wtf happened.

Moose gets knocked down again. There was WAY too much man-handling of Moose in this game.

Moose agrees.


Action in front of Moose.

Being a Moose is thirsty work.

Way up in a suite in Phillips Arena Kaptain Kovy watches. Hurry back, Kovy.

Third Period

Conks is back on my end.

Having Boultsie in your crease can't be much fun.

Conks cooling off.

Conks getting his stick into it.

Whitey screening the goalie.

Conk Block!

Thanks for ruining my shot, asshole. Conks makes a nice pad save on the side.

After that flukey Hainsey goal, Conks was PISSED! He did a little bunny hop like a mad kid. He realized that his water bottle was empty and slid it across the ice. Then he started flapping his blocker at the bench telling them he needed water. Then he started banging his stick. Get the man some water!!

Aside from throwing fits, being a kick ass goalie and needing water, Conks loved the ice girls. I saw him check a few of them out.

Thrashers tie the game and it's 2-2. We go through OT and into a shoot out. WOO HOO!

I got pics of both shoot out goals, but they are crappy and blurry. You only get one shot at those!

Rich "the Pimp" Peverley putting it in the top of Conks' net.

Slava "Money in the Bank" Kozlov of course scored as well.

Thrashers win at home! HELL YES! So that means we get a post game show guest! I haven't been to the post game show yet this season. So I was excited. I needed my Darren Elliot fix.

Our guest for the night...Mr. Marty Reasoner! Marty was the first star of the night and had assists on both goals, was a +2 and helped kill 3 out of 4 penalties.

Sorry Marty, I know my flash is bright.

Sorry for the watermark directly in the face, but a picture of Marty Reasoner is the entire reason I began watermarking my images. A particular blog has an affinity for Mr. Reasoner and just took my damn picture with not permission or credit. You are a hot commodity, Marty!

Thrashers get a desperately needed home win and 2 points.
Go Thrashers!

Oh, LORD - that guy trying to get the puck for his kids was hysterical.

BTW, I posted a fanshot to here over at Game Time... your photos are damn awesome, though it drives me nuts to see Moose get knocked around like that - mostly by his own teammates! What was their deal?

What? No pics of my favorite new daddy, Barret Jackman?

Oh well....wonderful post anyway. Although being St. Louis natives, my dad and I did have a little problem with the outcome of the game...him moreso than me. :-)

WTG, Thrashers!
