NHL Playoffs In Hotlanta
Well there hasn’t been hockey playoffs in the city of Atlanta since the Flames left town in the 70’s. At least I think there was playoff hockey in Atlanta then. I wasn’t old enough to remember it. I did hear the Flames were good in Atlanta. So I assume they were in the playoffs.
Now comes a new dawn. The Atlanta Thrashers will host the New York Rangers tonight in the first playoffs ever, for the Atlanta Thrashers. This will be a seven game series, and who will win it, is anybody’s guess. Both teams look solid, and something will have to give. The New York Mets were just in town against the Braves, as the Braves took that series 2 games to 1. So once again, the big apple and the peach state will square off in a sporting event in less than a 1 week period.
There is certainly a buzz in the Atlanta Area, with the Thrashers getting ready to lace it up for the first time in post season play. There’s no telling what type of pregame ceremonies they might have in store for the fans. When you get a bunch of rednecks from the South togehter to host a Northern Event, anything can happen!
I am going to go out on a limb and say the Thrashers will take this first game against the Rangers. I will pick Eric Belanger to be the game MVP for the Thrashers. I think it will be key for Belanger, Jim Slater, and Pascual Dupuis to step up and contribute to the stars like Kovaluchuk and Hossa. So let’s drop the puck here in Hotlanta and see what the boys from the South have in store for us!Click here for reuse options!
