Tonight our heroes travel to the classic Hockey Town of Atlanta Georgia to take on the Thrashers (anyone old enough to still remember the Atlanta Flames?) in another critical hockey game in the late season playoff push. The Thrashers are out of the playoff mix themselves (the last team in this category the Rangers will face this year) and are coming off a 6-3 loss to our rivals the Montreal Canadians. Your Rangers just defeated the Wild 2-1 (or so says the Versus network).
Still, Hotlanta has won 3 of the last 4 from us on their home ice - so this figures to be another gut wrenching - will sapping - nail biting - tough game.
To win we will need the power play to wake up and ring a few buzzers.
