Bend Over Blueland: Thrashers vs Leafs

Toronto Maple Leafs blew into town for the first time this season. They played the previous night where they managed to blow a 5-2 lead against the St. Louis Blues. They did manage to win in a shoot out. Thrashers were hoping to keep up their own winning streak and win their third game in a row.

There were a few waffle signs and some waffle boxes. I was looking forward to a fun time. I would not get that.

Luke Schenn warming up.

Hey! We know you! The program mentioned "ex Thrashers Clarke MacArthur and Colby Armstrong" but they forget Joey Crabb! We remember you, Joey!

Francois Beauchemin...hmmm, wonder if he's French Canadian.

Heat had a great sign. It was a picture of the Air Canada Centre with the Waffle House sign coming out of the top.

Komisarek clearing the pucks from the net.

The Monster! Gustavsson didn't play tonight, Reimer was in the net.

Speaking of Reimer....taking some shots. He REIMED us a new one.

Kaberle zoning out.

Beauchemin heading for the net.

Buff, Ladd and Sopel have an old Stanley Cup buddy on the Leafs, Chris Versteeg.

Dion Phaneuff is back in the cluster that is Toronto.

I always thought Dion looked like Snow Miser.

Army checking the place out. Not much has changed except that we win more now and actually have some decent crowds show up.

I see Colby hasn't changed much either, I still manage to get pictures of his eyes closed.

Reimer giving me the stink eye.

Reimer facing some shots with Heat's sign in the back.

Monster in the net.

The Monster shrugs off a puck.

Colby looking scared/surprised. That's what my face would have looked like if you had told me what the score would be tonight.

Swarming the Monster.

First period started out pretty normal.

The Thrashers got on the board first. Toby got a goal for my fantasy team, good job.

Trying to get some jump in their teams, old dance partners Colton Orr and Eric Boulton square off. One team definitely got some energy and it wasn't the Thrashers.

Pavs and the boys defending the crease.

Thrash giving the opposing fans shit and some silly string. They'd get the last laugh of the night.

Pavs keeps an eye on Kulemin.

We are over it too, Buff.

After the first period, things pretty much went to hell.

After letting in four goals, Mason came in to mop up the mess.

Buff: We won't suck as bad for you as we did for Pavs.
Don't believe him, Mason.

Some bullshit started. Eager punches Armstrong in the face, something which he will get a 4 game suspension for later. At the moment, he gets a 5 minute penalty
match penalty.

Toronto proceeded to score 3 goals. Then I did something I'd never done...I left early. It was 8-1 and the 2nd intermission. I got the fuck up out of there. Over 123 straight games and this is the first time I've ever left early. The game ended up with a 9-3 score. Ladd scored. Patrice Cormier scored his first NHL goal in this shittastic debacle.

Put in the rearview and move on. Go Thrashers!
