Atlanta Thrashers

OTB: Tortorella already has problems with Zherdev, Halak starts tomorrow and Arnott appears to have concussion

What team beat writers are saying this afternoon:

  • The Bruins lines from practice today.  Will the Bruins be able to carry some momentum after defeating Ottawa?
  • The Sabres feel good about themselves heading into tomorrow’s game versus Atlanta.  If you are a serious playoff contender, you have to beat Atlanta at home.
  • Martin Havlat is slated to return to the Hawks lineup tonight versus Columbus.  Will lineup with Bolland and Ladd.
  • No Steve Mason for the Jackets tonight.  Wade Dubielewicz gets the start, as the Jackets play four games this week.
  • Looks like Jaroslav Halak will start tomorrow for the Habs.  Price was great last night.
  • Jason Arnott seems to have a concussion and will sit out Saturday’s game.  He missed last night’s game too, which is a huge loss for a team that can’t score.
  • John Tortorella has already benched Nikolai Zherdev.  This certainly wasn’t predictable…
