Jump! Jump! Jump!
The energy line gets a few more chances with Dupis and Holik, but cannot get one past Lundquist. The bounces are still not going their way and at some point, every team needs a lucky bounce.
While he 3rd line impresses, the Hossa, Kozlov, Bandage line continues to underwhelm everyone. I am most shocked by Kozlov who could have solidified a great contract with even a decent showing in the playoffs. Instead he is handing money back to GM Don Waddle with every passing period. Lets see what happens on this power play!!
I think the Booger Blogger is sleeping over there. He and Kinkade were out late last night. Not that there is anything wrong with that.
So, we go into the first intermission tied at one. Lundquist settled down late in the period and our defense picked up their shakiness and I am seeing visions of their pathetic game three effort rearing it’s ugly head. Speaking of rearing and head, how about that pompous ass Derick Eliot? I have listened to his TV commentary and his insight on the post game show -- following Thrasher home games on AM680 The Fan—all season long. Does he know that he has absolutely no credibility? Losing 7-0 and he can find a way to phallate even the worst Thrasher. I realize he has to get on a plane with these guys, but to rip fans for giving their opinion instead of ever assigning any type of blame to any Thrasher for anything has gotten old. While others are calling for the ouster of coach Hartley, I’d like to see Eliot removed from the post game call in show.
We're winning! Wait no.
Thrasher special teams continue to depress! The Rangers have been doing that same set u this entire series and now the fans here are back into the game. Don’t let the official Blueball Blogger fool you, he did not see the Thrasher goal until they showed the replay. He’s had a finger up his nose all night, and was playing with a booger when the Thrashers scored. As soon as Slater took what was a weak penalty (even during the regular season) I said, it’ll be tied within a minute. As usual I was right.
The Rangers have their jump back and these fans are going bonkers. I can’t imagine how loud it will be in here during the Conference Finals. Meanwhile the Thrashers have their best penalty killing unit on the ice, unfortunately, it’s their #1 PP unit! The Rags are back at full strength and setting the pace. The TV timeout can’t come fast enough for this team. Lundquist looks shaky tonight, but can the T-birds take advantage of it? They need to put as many shots on goal as possible, but they can’t even control the puck in their end long enough to et up the offense.
Speaking of controlling the puck in somebody’s end, John Kincade is wearing that _______ blue jacket again tonight. I want to fill that blank with something referencing his sexuality, but no sensible nelly queen would be caught dead in that thing. Interesting stat of the night: He seems to be without his beard tonight.
LIVE FROM NY… IT’S SOCKEY TONIGHT (again)!

I am not surprised the Thrashers are losing, but I did not expect them to smell it up this bad. It’s awful quite in that dressing room right now. This is the time when a veteran would usually step up and call players out, but who’s going to do that? Kozlov? Hossa? Smellenby? This team has disappeared.
Hopefully, there will at least be some fighting this period. It’d be nice to see Andy Sutton get one last ass whipping before the season comes to a crashing halt.
LIVE BLOGGINGS FROM MSG!
It’s Sockey Tonight Live!
I’m back on the bandwagon with all the faith in the world in this team. They are going to…
SHIT! Rangers score!
Wow, this is going to be a fun night! Giving up a goal early should have lead to a fight. Now the Thrashers are making Michael Niedermayer look like a superstar! Seems to me that the Hossa line is still sleep walking through this series as they have been on the ice or both goals so far.
Giving up this third one should get Kari pulled. Where are the forwards???? Kozlov on the second goal and I am not sure if I should blame Ilya for that one or Sutton for taking a shit in the crease!
Hey look, Walt is on the ice. That is the first time I noticed him since I saw him changing in the dressing room.
3-0 and I have to take a crap. Hope I don't miss anything...

Season Wrap Up
With most of my audio equipmenat having been destroyed in the recent fire at my office, I have not been able to update you with any wonderful podcasts. For some of my insight into the Thrasher playoff debacle you can check out SOUTHEAST SHOOTOUT. I have made (and uploaded) several videos to both this site and YouTube (search jksockey) that I think you will enjoy.
I am not sure if these are fans or not. They smelled like homeless people...
Here is my view from press row. I sat on Jeff Schultz's lap!
Look, another flamer! This fire scares the toe-jam out of me...
The Blueball Bloggers trying to come up with a positive way to spin the outcome of Game 1.
