On With the Recap: Thrashers Remain Winless

  • The Atlanta Thrashers continue to be winless, they lose to the Philadelphia Flyers 4-0. Marty Biron made 31 saves for his first shutout as a Flyer. Jeff Carter and Joffrey Lupul had 2 points each for the Flyers. The Thrashers are the only team without a win, going back to last years playoffs they have lost ten in a row. Their powerplay has been abysmal, at 2 for 26 on the season. This was Marian Hossa's first game back from a groin injury, he is pointless on the year, but when he is 100% the goals should come. Things are not looking too good for the Thrashers.
  • Nathan Horton tied the game for Florida with 10 seconds left, and the Panthers went on to beat the Habs in a shootout 2-1. Illegal Curve favourite Cory Murphy got an assist and Tomas Vokun was stellar with 36 saves.
  • The Colorado Avalanche put out the Calgary Flames 5-4 in a shootout. The Flames were up 4-0 on the strength of Jarome Iginlas three points. After Jose Theodore was called in from the bullpen, the Avs scored four unanswered goals to take the game into a shootout. Ryan Smyth scored the shootout winner for the Avalanche and Paul Stastny remains very hot with 3 assists.
  • The Wild were able to kill off two penalties in overtime, but the Kings discovered Niklas Backstroms weakness; the shootout. Their shooters Dustin Brown, Mike Cammalleri and Anze Kopitar all scored on very nice goals as The Los Angeles Kings hand the Minnesota Wild their first loss 4-3.
