Thrashers lose 3-2 to the Caps at home in "Blue Land" (which also shares a border with "How Stupid Will You Feel If You Traded Three First Round Picks To Finish Second in the Division Land"). Atlanta wastes their game in hand and now, if the Lightning get just 1 point out of their next game against the Panthers it will set up an epic season finale with a championship banner on the line.

Ha ha!
