Oh, Thank God, It’s Opening Night

Finally the puck drops on the real Thrashers season – one, I’m assuming, involves a real Thrashers win. Thrash take on Caps tonight at 7:30 at Philips Arena. It’ll be Pavelec vs. Neuvirth, so God knows what the score’ll be. I have a theory that if the Thrashers can use their presence on the ice (article on a shift to Western Conference style hockey forthcoming) to hold the Capitals’ scorers in check, and if Pavs is on his game tonight, we can win.


Of course, I have had many other theories in my life too, like the theory that it’s ok to put a Chinese takeout container in the microwave without it exploding into metal-induced flame, so I could be completely wrong.

For the Caps side of things, please head over to my good buds at Rock the Red.net. Their game preview’s a good way to get an idea of what to expect from the opposition.  If you’re more interested in the Thrashers’ side of things, I’ll be doing a gameday storystream with constant updates all day long at SBNation Atlanta.  Do follow along!
