Thrashers vs Bruins...The Boston Massacre

Thrashers hockey was hot this week, well it was hot before Tuesday. If the Thrashers beat Boston, they could take over the 8th seed (for the moment). Fans were excited. Hockey sites and publications were giving us credit. People who never talked hockey were asking about the Thrashers. Hell, Canada shut up for 10 minutes about us moving to Winnipeg.

This was a big game, one of the biggest in several years. What happened? Well the Thrashers shit the bed of course.

Warm ups!

Timmy T!

The back of Tim's mask. I never noticed that little bow hunter before.

Boychuck stretching out.

Tuukka Rask, one of the coolest names in hockey.

The big man, Zdeno Chara.

Marco Sturm puts one in on Tuukka.

Timmy chilling by the bench talking to one of the equipment guys.

Lucic looking confused.

Timmy has the night off, so he doesn't take many shots.

A shot of Tuukka's mask.

Milan Lucic looking slightly less confused.

Swarming the goalie.

I spent the last several minutes of warm ups trying to get this cute Boston kid a puck. A few others around him had gotten pucks. Most of the guys were going in. I banged on the glass and pointed, no luck. Tim was leaving the ice and I banged on the glass and pointed at the kid. He flopped down in front of the kid stretched a final time and got up. Before leaving he tapped the glass at the kid. No puck, but at least Timmy said hi!

First Period!

Tuukka making one of many saves.

Former Thrashers Mark Recchi, gets all up in Moose's business.

Boulton tries to slide one in on Tuukka.

Boulton couldn't score, so he decided to fight.
Wanna dance?

Boultsie went down, but got right back up and kept swinging.

Get him, Boults!

Thornton has an arm free.

Slater in front of Tuukka trying to get something going.

Tuukka doing what it takes to stop the puck.

Some action on our end. Lucic is in Moose's space.

David Krejci put the Bruins on the board first, not a great surprise with the Thrashers being outshot 10 to 7. Not horribly outshot, but we could do better. We go into the second period down 1-0.

Second Period

Blake Wheeler causing problems for Moose.

Tuukka was chirping at Antro, I'm sure Antro was saying something back.

Some pressure in front of their net.

That pesky Krejci is in front of net again. Zach and Pops are trying to keep the puck out of there.

What's with all the love and class on the kiss cam lately? Rangers, Buffalo, Philly and now Boston have played nice. I'm embarrassed to admit I'm a bit disappointed.

In the far left hand side you can see Wideman's stick come in to interfere with Army on his break away. Penalty shot!!!!

Penalty shot FAIL!

Chaos in front of Moose. He's doing snow angels.

Guess the guy at the Play Off Headquarters doesn't believe in Blueland anymore.

The second period was even worse than the first! Thanks to Satan and Lucic the Bruins scored two more goals sending the Thrashers into the third period down 3-0. Come on guys, we've got 20 minutes, we can do this.!

Third period!

Moose trying to get Begin out of his way.

Tuukka trying to see around Nik. I love pictures of goalies trying to see around Nik.

Along with your will to live, games like this sap your desire to take pictures. That's all I have for the third period. A worthless game with a huge potential that was wasted. It IS still mathematically possible for the Thrashers to make the playoffs, just not probably. Yay math!
