THrashers vs Florida Panthers

Finally! The Olympic break is over and it's time for some live Thrashers hockey! While I immensely enjoyed the Olympics, nothing compares with seeing it live. Tuesday night the Florida Panthers came to town. Coming in on a 7 game losing streak, they are a small step away from blowing up the whole team and starting over.

Warm Ups!

Bryan Little looks very angry.

Moose looks very hot.

Moose debuted his new mask tonight. As always, the work is fantastic. Dave Art does amazing work on all Moose's mask. I'm not in love with the mask though. I liked his themed masks....Sponge Bob (even though I hated it for a while)...Pirates of the Moose-abbean, Indiana Moose, etc. This one is kind of plain. I DO love the moose peeking around corner though.

The guys are glad to be back on the ice.

What up, Johnny? He is excited because he heard I bought the first Oduya jersey at the game.

Good news for the defense, Christoph Schubert is back!

One of our newer Thrashers, Niklas Bergfors.

Zach: Oh crap, is that chick with the camera there again?

Zach: SHIT! She sure is.

Colby: Dear God, if you let me get traded back to Pittsburgh I'll give you my favorite stick. Thank you, amen.

Max taking some shots on net.

Get some, Max!

First period!

At the beginning of the game the cowbell came out and I got a dirty look from this chick. Then when they would cheer and play music, she would cover her ears. Lady you are at a hockey game, not the library. You better be glad you weren't in Philly.

After we scored 2 goals in the first 4 minutes of the game, Florida decides they need to call a time out!

That's right Kubina, get his ass out of the way.

Apparently Florida's time out worked, they scored two goals and tied the damn game.

Oduya and Hainsey helping Moose guard the net.

What's worse than seeing Marty Reasoner, one of our best penalty killers sitting in the box?

Seeing Marty and another Thrasher sitting in the penalty box while we try and kill off a 5-on-3. I guess at least if Hainsey is in the box he can't put it in our own net.

Action in front of Moose.

The Thrashers came out on fire scoring 2 within the first 4 minutes of the game. We also killed of a 5-on-3. Unfortunately Florida also got on the board and we went into the second period tied at 2-2.

Second Period.

Action in front of Moose.

Ha! Looks can be deceiving. That is NOT a goal. The puck is actually behind the net.

Good job, Johnny. Don't take any shit from him.

So close, Jimmy!!

Clemmenson juggling the puck.

I love an unmasked goalie!

Pevs getting up in Clemmer's grill.

Get it, Nick!

Kane ended up drawing a penalty for this one. Thrashers on the power play. Good job, Kaner!

Ballard, get away from Clemmer! That's not Vokoun, you can't knock him around.

So close!

I think the puck is sitting right in Clemmer's 5-hole, towards the right. "Some other guy" almost scored again!

Moose tracking the puck.

Instead of spiraling out of control after blowing a 2-0 lead, the Thrashers rallied in the second period and scored 2 more goals. We headed into the 3rd period up 4-2!

The on-ice entertainment for the second intermission was human bowling and my buddy Marissa was one of the contestants! Go Mo!

Woo Hoo, strike! And what wonderful prizes did she get? Several crappy CDs that came out years before she was born.

Third period!

How did that NOT go in??? I would have lost my mind if Johnny scored.

Olesz in front of the net making life miserable for Moose.

Imagine that, Hainsey with his mouth open talking/yelling. Ron is a vocal boy for sure.

Some chaos in front of Clemmer.

Woo! Moose is hot and thirsty, he needs a drink.

He can't get it open! Come on, can a Moose get some help? his other hand is in the glove.

Finally! Someone helps Moose open his drink.

Agh! Tasty.

Good thing he got a drink, he's busy!

Max shooting on the net.

Thrashers win! This is the 300th win in franchise history.

Goalie love!

Look in Pavs hand, he picked up the puck for Moose. Moose will probably want to save that one as it is the 300th win.

Thrashers win so we have a post game show guest and it is Jimmy Slater! How bout that hat??

My favorite thing is how he keeps the hat on while putting the headset on. Notice his bandaged hand, too.

Jimmeh talking with Darren and Dan. He talked about how he was excited to get back on the ice after the break, how the team was working well together and how the new guys were meshing.

Gotta love that hat.

Congrats on 300 wins, Thrashers!

Sasha March 4, 2010 at 12:11 PM  

Hahah! OMG. Hat and headphones is so funny! I guess he didn't want to ruin his look!

Kaat March 5, 2010 at 12:30 AM  

Great pix! He's totally channeling Exelby here. Love it.

Has Kozzy been taking the pre-game warmup before being scratched?

Thanks guys!!

Kaat, I don't think so, I haven't noticed him. I also don't see him up in the suite with the other guys during the game.
