Caps vs. Panther 4-3-2007 Wrap Up/ Caps @ Thrashers 4-4-2007 Preview

The Local Yokels:

Miami Herald.

Final Thoughts:

We won't have too long to see if things have turned the corner. 80 down, 2 to go.

Washington Capitals (27-53; 68 points; 5th Southeast Division, 14th Eastern Conference, 27th Overall) @ Atlanta Thrashers (41-38; 93 points; 1st Southeast Division, 3rd Eastern Conference, 13th Overall):
Caps Game #81, Road Game #41, NHL Game #1,196

Phillips Arena, Atlanta, GA. 7:05 pm. Washington TV: Comcast Sportsnet Mid-Atlantic. Radio: WTNT 570-AM Atlanta TV: SportSouth. Radio: The Fan 680-AM. Canadian National TV: TSN and RIS. NHL Center Ice: SportSouth feed.

Tonight the Caps hit the road for one last time this season as they visit the Atlanta Thrashers in the last Southeast Division game for the Caps this season. The Thrashers are coming off a 3-2 win in Boston and have won two in row since losing three straight.

What The Natives Are Saying: .pdf game notes. (How can the Caps be 0-4-1 in their last five?)

Open Source Intelligence:

Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Neutral Views: AP wire.

What Do I Expect Tonight?:

With three games left of their schedule, the Thrashers are one point up on Tampa Bay with a game in hand. Any kind of win tonight for the Thrashers will virtually give them the Southeast Division Title. The Thrashers loaded up for the playoff push at the deadline and have already qualified for the first time in franchise history. Thrashers have been awful lately on the road, winning only twice in their last six road games, both of them in Boston. However, they aren't playing this game on the road. They are at home where they have lost only twice since February 24th. Against a Caps team that hasn't won a road game since February 24th themselves (a span of 9 road games) and have the fewest road wins overall in the NHL, things don't look very bright for the Caps tonight.
