First they took down the best of the East, now they've beaten the best of the West.
Regular season wins don't come much bigger than this. This was a total team effort.
Alternate Three Stars:
1) Ondrej Pavelec
Saved 32 of 33, some in astounding fashion.
2) The Evander Kane/Bryan Little/Anthony Stewart Line
This line played some tough minutes (more DZ face-offs than any other line), and still managed to put a combined 9 shots on goal. Tons of pressure generated by these three.
3) Rich Peverley
1A, +1, 3SOG, 4 Takeaways, +6 CORSI - Rich was all kinds of hustle tonight.
Two more "Sorta Stats" that help tell the story:
ATL - 18
DET - 11
ATL - 20
DET - 7
These stats may be on the subjective side, but it's a rare occasion Atlanta comes out on top of these numbers, especially against a team like Detroit. The Thrashers just wanted it more.
Happy birthday to Timmy, and Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.
