The lines for tonight were:
Honestly, looks good. Slava had 5 SOG tonight, so maybe the sitting woke him up, or maybe he's still emo about Kovalchuk. Meh, whatever. Not going to argue - he got an assist. Bergfors played very well with Little and Antropov. He pressures directly to the crease, which is something I've opined about us doing for a long time. Now if we can get someone to just stand there a la Tkachuk (but with more teeth) for rebound goals, we're all set.
I'm not going to judge life after Kovalchuk based on a team that's on a 13 game win streak and who could (and probably should) win the Cup. I'm really not judging our playoff chances yet seeing as how close we are and the fact that Waddell's hinting at being sellers. But I don't sense that doom that I did when Hossa left, and that's a good thing.
Special congrats go to Toby Enstrom, whose goal tonight gave him 40 points on the season - the new franchise record for most points by a Thrashers defenseman in a season. Li'l guy's been in the league less than 2 years and he already owns 2 franchise records. Ok, now, can we sign him to an uber extension now and not worry about any Toby Drama later on? Hmmm?
