Thrashers Hot Start: Fun With Numbers

New, 6 comments

The Atlanta Thrashers are 2-0 and on pace to finish 82-0....which of course, will not happen. Still, there are some awesome numbers that came as a result from a 2-0 start, so let's pause to enjoy them.

Atlanta has scored in all six periods they have played, and are on pace for an insane 400 team goals which would put them in the company with the 1980s Oilers teams--I suspect the team may cool off at some point :)
