Gameday: Thrashers @ Penguins

Tonight marks the exact mid point of the Season for the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Atlanta Thrashers come to town and try to pour some more salt on the wounded penguins. The Pens are in dire need of a win tonight to stop the bleeding and turn this recent losing streak around. One win should get this team going the other way and build a little confidence.

What better way to turn this around than to play the Atlanta Thrashers right? I said the same thing about the Florida game on Saturday. that worked out well for us didn't it. The Tharshers are coming off a 4-1 loss to the suddenly confident Tampa Bay Lightning. Their 5th loss in the last 6 games. Call me Crazy but the Thrashers need to trade Kovalchuk sooner rather than later. Trade him for some good young talent to build around.

No Idea who Coach T is going to send out on the ice tonight, at this point i wouldn't mind seeing Shero call up the entire WBS team to play tonight, at least we would get a solid effort from everybody on the ice.

I called a win last night and it made me look stupid for doing it. So tonight i'm predicting nothing. I'm not saying which way this game is going to go. Both teams are struggling and both teams desperatly need a win to start to turn things around.

GO Pens
