Thrashers vs Islanders

So me and like 30 other fans show up to see the Thrashers vs the Islanders. Good thing we showed up because not many Thrashers did. Slow game, bad effort, bad night.

Warm Ups!

I've been excited about seeing the NHL's latest Wunderkind, John Tavares. Taken by the Islanders as the #1 overall pick, this young man had a lot to live up to. He's done well and has helped put the Islanders back on the right path.

Let's no joke though. There is ONE big reason I'm on the Islanders side for warm-ups.

Oh yeah, everyone's favorite chatty, pale-eyed French Canadian, Martin Biron

Did you hear that? My underwear just blew off.

I have to say I'm not in love with his mask on the Island. Kind of plain. I miss the lumberjack.

As beautiful as I think Marty's eyes are, I do have to say he looks rather zombie-ish here. "Brains....." I think he was concentrating on trying to get a kid a puck.

Marty loves to chat with old friends! Here he is catching up with his old Buffalo buddy, Eric Boulton.

I love Marty, but I was excited to see Rollie, too. In fact, I'd have to say these guys were probably #2 or #3 on my list of goalie tandems I was excited to see.

The older I get, the more I love the older guys. I see less and less guys my age still playing. Dwayne still has a few years on me, but it's close.

Did you hear that? That wailing and gnashing of teeth you hear is from Edmonton. Khabi is good, but he does have a habit of getting hurt. Dwayne "Rollie" Roloson has been turning in solid performances on the Island. I think it was a mistake for Edmonton to not resign Rollie, but hey, what do I know? Either way, Rollie is still showing that he has some VERY good mileage left on him.

Meyer photo-bombed my picture, but I still like it because you can see the puck going into Marty's glove.

FORESHADOWING!!!! Watch this man! Someone cover Moulson!!!

Simmer! Fans still talk about missing Jon Sim. He was in a good mood and seemed to be enjoying the music. He was bopping around and kind of dancing.

Marty taking some more shots. I don't know why they bothered, he didn't play. That's right YET AGAIN I did not see Biron play. This makes the 4th time I've seen him ride the bench.

Tavares looking adorable.

Nate Thompson skulking around.

Tavares, Josh Bailey and Frans Nielsen getting ready to take some shots.

Moose refusing to meet my gaze. He is trying so hard to hide his jealousy!

Great picture of Rollie if the guy in Islanders jersey had not put the damn reflection on the glass.

Marty taking more shots.

Marty sees his old Buffalo buddy, Max Afinogenov!
Marty: Wow Max, those skates are awesome.
Max: Thanks, they have good skates here.
Marty: See my pads? I got lucky because I could keep my Philly pads, same color!
Max: Cool.

Anyone that knows me knows that Trent Hunter is "my kind of guy." Can't resist the shaved head and a goatee. If he has a tattoo..look out! Just ask my husband :)

Hainsey: I see your girl over there taking pictures of the other team again.
Hainsey: She's just taking pictures for her blog.
Moose: I know.
Okposo: She's taken so many pictures of Biron she had to put in a new photo card.
Moose: Shut up!
Hainsey: Now why'd you have to go and piss him off like that?

Marty sees what you did there, Simmer.

Majestic Marty

Getting ready for some more shots.

Marty: Oh hey little guy, watch out! Where is your mom? You can't be out here. Oh, sorry Park, didn't know it was you.

Swarming the goalie.

First period!

Everyone getting ready for the opening face off.

Kane waiting for the puck.

Pavs getting ready.

The ref blows the whistle.

Simmer gets called for holding the stick. Look at that innocent face. He's like "What?? I didnt' do anything??" Get in the box, Simmer!

Hunter and Schubert keeping an eye on the action.

My friend Michelle on the zamboni!

I've got to talk to my ticket rep about riding. I want to so bad!!!

She's looking for familiar faces in the crowd.

She says she never saw me, but she's waving at me...or at least it looks at it.

Thanks to a goal from Slava, the Thrashers went into the 2nd period up 1-0. Unfortunately the good times stopped there and I was completely uninspired to take pics. I took more pics of Michelle on the zamboni than I did the 2nd and third period.

Second Period!

Second period opening face off.

No great surprise, Pevs in front of the net trying to make something happen.

Yeah, that's it for the 2nd period. Blah. 2 goals from Moulson put a bad taste in the mouth of Blueland and we went into the third period down 2-1.

Welcome to Wal-Mart, how are you today?

Some action in front of Rollie.

Get it, Slava!

Pavs tracking the puck.

Then it was like in slow motion....Noooooooooooooooooo!


Booooooo Thrashers lose 4-1. That damn Moulson had a hat trick and then there was an empty net goal. Tragedy in Blueland.

Next home game isn't until December 12 against the Montreal Canadiens. Go Thrashers!!!

Thank you so much for the Zamboni pictures, it really WAS fun, and I swear, lol, I did not see your smiling happy waving face in that crowd. WHen all those people are staring at you, you just don't see, and you weren't in your regular spot, so I was embarrassed scanning the crowd, but let me ride that thing again, well, katy bar the door, lol. We have to get you all set to ride it!!!!

Oh, ok, so on hottie Trent Hunter, did you see that cut over his left eye!? I got a couple of it, looked like he'd been sliced by a skate up there!

I loved your caption about Park! I was noticing the same thing, scappy little dude, a bunch of scappy dudes, actually.

Thanks again, for my zamboni ride pics and, for yet another great blug! PS: Right on, with the Hainsey/Okposo conversation :-)
