Erin Go Bragh! Thrashers vs Flyers

Friday was one of my favorite games of the season, the St. Patrick's Day edition. The Thrashers wear special jerseys for warm-ups and then auction them off for charity. The jerseys are usually a bit rich for my blood. I was hoping to get Oduya's jersey, but couldn't break the bank to do it.

Thor was wearing his special protective gear to shield his badly split lip.

Mason rocking the green jersey.

Ben Maxwell stretches go sit in the box.

Mason is giggles and grins in his green jersey.

Johnny is sticking his tongue out at me because he knows I can't afford his jersey.

Marc Stuart is stunned. Maybe he still wakes up in the morning and there is still that little 1/2 a second of peace and happiness when he thinks he's still with the Bruins.

Johnny having a bit of a wardrobe malfunction. Best part of this picture: You can see the little piece of tape between the O and the D of his name. Someone decided to make it look more Irish, O'duya.

Johnny likes.

Buff looking handsome in his green jersey.

The blue socks kind of kills it. At least they weren't wearing the socks for the red jerseys tonight.

It's a leprechaun! Nope, just Timmy Stapleton.

Swarming the goalie.

Hopefully good luck will follow us into the game. I had my sign that said "We need a LITTLE luck." Little has been snake bitten lately. If he keeps up his hard work, something good will have to come of it.

I like this picture because it looks like Pavs is giving Buff some directions.

I like this picture because...well you know why.

Come on Bogo, get that dirty bastard Hartnell out of the crease. He might give Pavs fleas.

Or even worse! Fortunately this didn't result in a goal.

Face off with Little and Carter.

Johnny and Thor seem to be discussing something.

Johnny: I was hoping my girl would win my jersey. She is a big fan.
Thor: Well she bid on it. She was out of work for a while, so I'm sure bidding went to high.
Johnny: Yeah, too bad.
Thor: I guess some people really wanted a good Irish jersey for St. Patrick's day.

Johnny: Wait, what? Did you put that tape on my jersey?
Thor: No, I thought it was supposed to be there, your name is Irish.
Johnny: No, it's Kenyan.
Thor: I thought you were Swedish?
Johnny: I am.
Thor: I'm confused.

My favorite spot on the ice to see Buff, harassing the goalie. I like his performance as a Dman this season, but he does his best work in front of the opposing goalie. Just ask Luongo!

Boucher tracks the puck through the chaos.

Bouch er peeks over his teammates.

Rare to get an action shot with all 6 players in it.

I talked with the former Peverley Hillbilly. He has reinvented himself as Laddies' Ladds. He has a kilt with Ladd's name and number. It even has the captain's "C" on it. Glad he could repurpose the mullet!

Buff, Mason and Pavs have a chat. Maybe they are chatting about how in the world they allowed the Flyers to score that tying goal with less than 2 minutes to play.

Nothing is decided in OT so we go to a shoot out!

Boucher denies Little.

Pavs turns aside Richard's shot...and his mouth guard.

Schremp comes in and confirms that he is money in the shootout.

Wheeler takes it in and gets almost past the goal. I thought he had lost it at this point.

But no, he puts it in the net!

Thrashers win! Shoot outs aren't the death sentence they used to be for the team. It's a good thing because God knows they can't win in regulation.

With 2 assists, Ron Hainsey is the #1 Star of the Game. And the winner of the autographed stick is the guy who waves the Blueland flag through the entire game.

I didn’t get too many action shots this time. Randy had seats in 113. He, Kerry and some guys they work with were over in club eating during the 1st period, so I really didn’t take the camera out the entire period. I got it firing during the 2nd though.

This was a fun update - we had to miss the game because we were out of town, but I'm glad we won! The Thor/Johnny captions are hilarious! And if I'd been there, I would have bid on Timmy's my bank account is thanking me for being gone!
