Jackets 2, Thrashers 0: Photoblog

Good crowd on-hand for White Out/Free Food for STHs Night at Nationwide, and the Jackets put on a better show than on Sunday. Even without Nash, who is apparently out due to throat problems, the Jackets dominated the run of play most of the night. And the goals came from the fabled secondary scoring — Fritsche and Boll.

Fun game to watch, not many penalties called, so it had good flow. I thought Kris Russell played well; he stripped the puck off Marian Hossa a couple of times. Zherdev didn’t score, but he had some nice moves and was involved all night.

As always, the question now is: can they keep it up? Tomorrow night is a road game in Nashville, which would not seem to bode well. But a winning streak to end 2007 would certainly be nice.

  1. You must have killer tickets. Nice shots! Wish the games weren’t so expensive.

  2. Oh, I usually sit up in the nosebleeds. These were half price.

    This Pepsi deal actually has really good seats for half-price:

    As I often say, much as I worry about attendance, my life’s going to suck when it really does turn around. No more cheap tickets, no more free parking, no more empty seat next to/in front of me for my coat…

  3. Those are really nice pics!! I love your photoblogs!! I can’t believe we choked against the Preds…again. When will it turn around?!

  4. Thanks for the tip.

    ps, I don’t have to log in for comments anymore, cool.
