I don't have to tell you how important it is for the Thrashers to play better against the Lightning. They've had our number this year, beating us in all four games so far by a combined score of 15-8. The last two games have both ended in overtime, however, so perhaps there is reason for hope?
With two games against the Lightning in the next three days, the Thrashers could considerably improve their position in the Southeast Conference with two wins.
