Touchdown! Thrashers destroy Kings 7-0

The Western Conference is tough. Fortunately we don't see many Western Conference teams. I also get very excited when Western teams come through. You have a better chance of seeing Haley's Comet than the L.A. Kings, so I was super excited when I saw they were coming to town.

The Kings have struggled in the past, but with young super stars like Drew Doughty and Jack Johnson, they've been having a pretty good come back this season. They have this other kid, maybe you've heard of him, Anze Kopitar. I hear he's pretty good. Something about being the top scorer in the NHL.

Warm ups!

Peter Harrold stretching.

Nice splits! I was excited about seeing Quick, I love his mask.

Yes Frolov, you! I am going to put you on my blog. I know it's quite an honor.

Goalie be nimble, goalie be Quick
tonight you will be lit up so hard,
you are gonna feel sick!

Shot of the side of Quick's bad ass mask.

Drew Doughty, the #2 overall pick of the 2008 draft.

Quick in net.

Jack Johnson: We are so totally kicking these dudes' asses.
Michal Handzus: Yeah, we are gonna light them up.

Extreme close up of Quick's mask.

More Quick.

Is that a hockey smile or what??? Dustin Brown looks like he is on top of the world!!! That will change in a few hours.

Anze Kopitar, the leading scorer in the NHL. I read somewhere that he kind of looks like a zombie and now I can't get it out of my mind.


More Doughty.

Ex-Pen Rob Scuderi! I always forget he is with them now.

How Swede it is! Ersberg and Hedberg chat it up in Swedish.

Ersberg: That girl on our side is wearing your jersey.
Hedberg: Yes, she is my #1 fan.
Ersberg: So why is she watching us?
Hedberg: She just likes to take pictures of the visitors sometimes.
Ersberg: Doesn't sound like a very good fan.
Hedberg: Watch your mouth about her! She makes great signs.

Extreme close up of Ersberg.

Former Av and favorite of my buddy Canadace, Ryan Smyth

More Scuds.

Swarming the goalie.

Matt Greene

Ersberg coming right for me.

The crowd at the game was truly fantastic. Large, loud and full of energy. I can think of no better game for this little guy to start his hockey fan career.

First Period!

Opening face off.

Action in the Kings' end.

Toby getting ready to pass...because you know he isn't gonna shoot!

Still in the Kings' end.

Kings bringing it into the Thrashers zone.

The guys have some stuff to talk about.

Traffic in front of Quick.

Back down in front of Pavs.

Boy the zamboni riders dress up now, huh? Such a beautiful young lady. Aren't you cold though, honey?

The first period was pretty tight and ended with a 0-0 score. I was thinking it was going to be a close game!

Second Period! The Second Period started and was still pretty tight, then all hell broke loose. There were 4 goals in just over 5 minutes and a damn near line brawl. Old time hockey!

Action in front of Pavs.

Passing the puck.

Way up in the suites, Kari is bored. I think he's texting.

Zombietar and Pevs in the face off.

Kopitar: Brainzzzzzzz

Harrold: Coach, Anze bit me in the head again.

Thor: GOD I want to kick someone's ass.
Boultsie: Me, too.
Thor: Yeah, but you always want to kick someone's ass. I mean I want a good fight.
Boultsie: We'll see what we can do.

Face off.

LINE BRAWL!! After that fourth goal, the Kings were a little upset. Schubert cross checks someone and all hell broke lose.

Boultsie finds someone to go.

Slater has his dance partner.

Pops squares off.

Then there is Chris Thorburn and Raitis Ivanans. Those boxing lessons Thor took during the summer must have paid off because he destroyed Ivanans.

Friend of the blog, Mr. Fred captured this.

Another hockey buddy of mine, Michelle had the bird's eye view of the melee. Just blood, spit and ass everywhere.

So after everything calms down, it's back to the game!
Up in the's a bird, it's a plane...

A little glass repair. The Thrashers kicked ass so hard we broke that shit!

What an absolute MAGICAL 2nd period. We went into the 3rd period with a 4-0 nothing lead!
Up in the suites, Boris and Bryan Little watch. It's got to be killing Little to get sat. Is that Kari sleeping?

Thrash is doing his part to fight male cancer, he's got his 'stache for Movember.

Third Period

Welcome to the game, Ersberg!

Oh shit, it's the Po-po!

They tossed some dude out. I don't know what was going on, but I heard they were harassing some girl. Funny, when the cops come down the aisle, no one bitches or yells "Down in front" or "puck in play!"

Taking some action to Ersberg.

Maxim Afinogenov-this-face-off-and-score-some-goals.

Oh yeah, baby! I caught the goal! (Ersberg did NOT)


Sit down, douchebag, are you kidding me???

Action after the face off.

PANIC! Pavs goes down. Minutes from his first career shut out Pavs takes a puck to the knee. (I found this out later at home) When he went down making a save, the goalie pad opens up a bid above the knee and he took a puck there. Pavs shook it off and jumped right back in. Nice job, Pavs!

Ersberg should have been vomiting instead of spitting water based on the night that he and his team were having.

Ersberg has got to be thinking "GET THAT @*(!& PUCK OUT OF HERE!!!"

Kane waiting in front of the net hoping to make something fantastical happen.

He does. More celebration.

Ersberg decided he didn't want me taking any more pictures.

Another goal.

Another little scrum.

Thrashers win! EPIC win. 7-0 Max, Kovy and Kane all have 2 goals and Pavelic gets his first career shutout while facing 38 shots. In his grand return to Blueland, Kaptain Kovy had a 4 point night.

With a giant win like that, you knew we'd have a post game show guest.
Our newest baby Thrasher, Evander Kane! Darren Elliot's beer blocked my shots of Evander all night.

Not a great shot, but I love Evander's smile in this one. Such a baby.

Signing an autograph for a young fan.

So I leave the post game show and I'm on a natural high. Imagine my delight when I go to catch MARTA and discover some more free entertainment!

This guy was excited about something. He sang very loudly and did this little jumping dance.

More dancing.

More jumping.

Wonder what is in the jar?

Well, whatever's in that jar, I think I'd like to have some. Jeeze.

I love the photos - you know, I was thinking the same thing about the zamboni girl.

Are there no ushers any more? I had SO many people walk down while the puck was in play yesterday and completely block my view. Do people not realize too that they should really probably wait until stoppage to get up? That's just kind of common sense right there, or just basic politeness, or something.
