We Can't Beat Them: Thrashers vs Lightning

Tampa Bay is Thrashers' Kryptonite. We haven't beaten them since opening night of the 2009-10. Even when they sucked last season, we couldn't beat them and certainly not this season when they are leading the Eastern Conference. Tonight would be no different.

Heat continues his anti-bromance with Marty St. Louis with another sign. This wasn't my favorite (my favorite is the "you must be THIS high to ride this ride). I still think he should bring everyone he's ever done and plaster the glass with them. That would be awesome.

With Evander Kane and Jim Slater out, we've called up a few Wolves. Welcome back to Atlanta, Nigel Dawes.

I have my "A Little is All You Need" sign. Bryan liked it.

Nik likes something.

With Mason hurt, we called up another Wolf, Peter Mannino.

Last game we saw that Brent Sopel was a Renegade of Funk. Tonight we see that Brent also "wants to rock." When Twisted Sister's rock anthem came on Brent was bobbing his head and singing along. One time he was bent over and I think he would have windmilled if his hair was longer.

Close up of Peter's mask. Peter is watching Pavs, he won't see much net time in warm up.

Johnny O! He'll have a full beard by the end of the game.

Dan Ellis and Hainsey are chatty, wonder what they are talking about?
Dan: Damn, it's good thing we aren't getting paid according to the crowd tonight, eh?
Ron: You play in Tampa, the crowds are no better there when you are losing.
Dan: True. I'm glad I play in Florida, no state income tax, whoo hoo! I mean the league already takes out that 18% escrow. I haven't worried about money like this since I was in college. How am I going to make my BMW payment??
Ron: I'm not having this conversation with you.
Peter: Let me tell you about the AHL!!

I think Dustin must have heard the conversation between Ron and Dan.

Hainsey giving a little smirk.

Patrice Cormier has his game face on, he looks very intense.

Or maybe he just has gas.

Mannino finally gets some net time and Pevs fires a shot at him.

Swarm the goalie.

Thrash flirting with a member of the Blue Crew.

Get that midget out of there, Buff!

Up in the suite Evander Kane and Jimmy Slater watch the game. Looks like they had some snacks. Bogo must be on a snack run.

Moore and 381 other Lightning trying to get the puck out of their zone.

A mass of humanity in front of Roli's net.

The boys having a little discussion.

Boulton decides he wants to kill Moore, Ryan Malone doesn't think that's a good idea.

Ooof! Thorburn takes a hit.

That's a big screen in front of Roli!

I just like this picture because you can see the puck on Roli's pad.

Looks like Nik is feeling better. He gives Jones a little shove.

Stewie in front of the net hoping to get one in.

Thrashers score!

Kiss -cam time. St. Louis is not amused.

Downie: Dude, have you seen the roster list in the program?
St. Louis: Yeah, what?
Downie: They have you listed as 5'9'' bwahahaha. Who'd ya pay off to get that on there?
St. Louis: I AM 5'9".
Downie: Yeah, whatever. 5'9'' my ass.

Sopel trying to clean the crease.

Vinnie is all up in Pavs' crease.

Guess this guy thinks Roli is in the zoo. He's offering him peanuts.

Roli hanging out during a break. You can see a bit of his new mask. It depicts the helmet, god of thunder and lightning wears.

In the early seconds of the 3rd period, Stamkos broke Blueland's heart by tying the game. I rarely complain about officiating, but tonight was really awful. I think Stamkos could have pulled a gun on a Thrasher and shot them and we would have gotten a delay of game penalty for bleeding on the ice. Nothing was determined in OT so we went on to the shoot out.

Bryan Little, the first shooter scored on Roli. First up for the Lightning, Victor Hedman.

Next up for the Lightning, Adam Hall. He scores.

Ryan Malone comes in with a shot, Pavs makes a save!

Maybe Boulton should have gotten to Moore. Moore comes in and gets the game winning goal and, just like it looks in this picture, pisses on Blueland.

Lightning win, boo!
Dan: Awesome win, Roli!!
Roli: Thanks man.
Dan: Do we get paid extra for a shoot out?
Roli: Get over it.
