More Thrashers

Posted on: December 14, 2010 10:37 am
Don't look now, but following last nights 4-3 OT win over the Ottawa Senators. the Atlanta Thrashers (currently one of the hottest teams in the NHL) are only 2 points behind the Washington Capitals for the Southeastern division lead. The Caps, who have lost their last 6 games, have 39 points. Atlanta, which has won 8 of its last 10 games, is right behind them with 37.

Following all of their offseason moves, thought that the Thrashers would make the playoffs by being in the top 8 teams in the Eastern Conference. Now I'm thinking I might have sold them a little bit short. I think they just may be the Southeastern Division champs.

The Caps may be hearing footsteps.
