Ole Ole Ole....Thrashers vs Canadiens

I can no sooner make a post about the Toronto Maple Leafs without the video of the Goalie landscaper than I can make this Habs post without the following video. My favorite part is at second 55 when he says "When you feel so treh bon so HAUGH HAUGH." God I love it.

Habs ont les plus grands fans douche bag dans la ligue.
Habs fans sont fous.

I actually don't hate the Habs. I hate (most of) their fans. The few fans I've met that have been cool indeed say most fans are asses.
One of the Habs I REALLY don't hate, Hal Gill. I love me some Hal Gill.

I love Georges Laraque, too. One of the biggest bad asses on the ice, a super sweet, vegan, charity driven man off of the ice.

But back to the Thrashers!
Hello Ron Hainsey!

Bobo! I'm so glad Bobo is back and playing well. His skating and positioning has improved and he's only taken 1 penalty in the past 2 games. Nice job, Boris!

Slater and Kane on puck patrol.

Nice view of Sponge Bob Moose Pants. I had my "I believe in Moose" sign (as seen on TV!) and fellow Moose fan Donna had her "I love Moose" sign, so Moose was feeling the love.

Michelle got a picture of us and our signs. Thanks Michelle!

Pavs has a new mask. It's really nice. It pays homage to the old Atlanta Flames.

You can see that he has an old Flames goalie on the other side. I don't know if it is a particular goalie or not. This month's "Ask a Thrasher" is Ondrej, so I submitted a question asking who it is. Hopefully they will choose mine and we can find out.

Anssi Salmela

My two favorite Thrashers coming right for me!

The guys getting ready to take some shots.

Slater chillin'.

Moose in the crease. You can see Patrick Moose on the side.

Peverley and Thor. Thor is becoming quite the PK master lately. Good for him.

Nik Antropov.

Colby, not sure what he's looking at. He looks a little zoned.

First Period!

I go up to my seat and my husband goes up to his. We only have 1 season ticket because he usually can't make the games. He buys a $10 seat up in 400. He likes it up there. Two rows behind me were the loudest most obnoxious Haugh Haughs (Habs fans) in the world. The chick's shrill voice was like an ice pick in my skull. Between my Santa Thrashers hat and the Habs chick, I was getting a head ache.

I love when we play Canadian teams because I love hearing the Canadian National Anthem, too. This chick was serious! She had a formal gown and white gloves. She even did parts of the anthem in French. I knew the Habs fans would love that.

I finally couldn't take the shrill bitch behind me anymore and asked my husband if there were any seats up in 400. Score! He was in a row with two seats and he was all alone. So I journeyed up into the rafters of Phillips Arena. The view was similar to the one I had for the blogger day. Be sure and click on the pictures to make them bigger. From up here they look they were taken from a satellite.

Action in front of Carey Price.

Carey tracking the puck.

Carey price made some phenomenal saves. Here he turns yet another one away.

Santa is a Thrashers fan!

The first period ended with the Thrashers being down 1-0 thanks to a power play goal by former Thrasher, Glen Metropolit.

Second Period!

The action was delayed a bit when Schubert cracked the glass and it had to be repaired.

Carey Price continuing to make amazing saves.

Come on Antro, you know you can't rough poor Carey up. No harm no foul. Carey is fine and Nik didn't get a penalty.

The second period was a scoring bonanza! The Canadiens went up 2-0 after an unassisted wrist shot from Andre Kostitsyn. and I got boo-boo face. Moose probably should have had that one. I thought "Great, another day in Blueland." I lost the faith! Sorry guys! Christoph Schubert led the charge back with a goal and Army tied the game up with a goal of his own. Montreal pulled ahead with another goal by A. Kostitsyn. Hope was restored when Antro tied it up.

Third Period!

Carey Price was spectacular in this game.

Too spectacular.

Bogosian decides that he wants to kill Lapierre.

He looked so angry. Not sure what Max did to piss him off so badly.

Get him, Bogo!!!

Zach Attack indeed!

Price making yet another great save....damn him.

Yeah yeah, great save.

No scoring in the third period! It was still tied up. Moose made a PHENOMENAL save against Sergei Kostitsyn and completely redeemed himself from that soft goal in the first period. Big save!


Over time face off.

Antro in front of the net.

Price laying down on the job.

Thanks to a wrist shot on the power play by Kaptain Kovalchuk, Thrashers win!!!

Carey Price totally stole his team a point. He absolutely robbed Boulton and made a few phenomenal glove saves while facing 35 shots on goal. We also hit the post several times in the first. I was convinced the hockey gods hated us. Fortunately we pulled it out!

Go Thrashers!

That was a fun game. I was impressed with Schubert - he played really well. Glad to see Boris back, too!

Thanks for posting some Slater pics! *sigh*

Your pictures look great! Whatever settings your camera is on ,keep it that way. Pictures look AWESOME!
I love it when you get some pictures of Salmela, he always looks pissed.
(But I like that. I wish they would stop scratching him.)

Michelle December 14, 2009 at 11:16 PM  

Great blog, and I told ya it's great up there in the 'high' seats! I love it up there. Hey, how cool, I got your picture of you and your signs, and in several of yours, I can see me and JB down in enemy territory taking Price and Laraque and Gill pictures. Can see me really clear in the one "The guys getting ready to take some shots."

Great game!!! And as always, outstanding blog!!!

See ya at Thursday's.

Schubie really has been playing well. He was the guest at the post game show, but we didn't go. Serge didn't feel like fighting the crowd. Beth, how do you like Slater's haircut, nice huh? Glad he got rid of the Ex look.
Thanks Tara! For warm ups I've been using the Aperature mode, usually 5.6 and I set a custom white balance with the ice. That is how I get the screaming blue jerseys. Sometimes they scream too much and I just put it on sports mode lol. I usually rotate between sports, no flash and A.
Michelle, I saw you guys in the back of the picture and was like "Oh there's Michelle" lol.

Beth Dolgner December 15, 2009 at 1:52 PM  

The haircut looks great. Especially with the, ahem, "groomed" eyebrows. He looks much better now. Can't wait to see him all cleaned up at Casino Night!!!

Sunshine36616 December 15, 2009 at 5:44 PM  

Oh are you going to casino night?? I'll be there, too! Last year he let me spin the roulette ball/wheel :)

Beth Dolgner December 16, 2009 at 2:14 PM  

This will be my first Casino Night...FINALLY! To say I am excited is the understatement of the year. Will be nice to meet you again!
