HPK/Assat Game Two

Miika Wiikman cooled off considerably today as Assat knocked off HPK 5-4 in overtime to knot their SM-liiga championship series at 1-1. Wiikman stopped 27 of 32 shots faced in the game. The loss possibly opens the door for [url=karri-ramo]Karri Ramo[/url] to start in game three.

Vesce Named AHL Rookie of the Month

E-Mail for a Thrashers Homer

To: holly.gunning@hockeysfuture.com From: Pete Choquette and the Bolt Prospects.com Staff Subject: Nice Choke Holly, It's hard to believe the Thrashers, with the might of former HF Top-50 Prospect Garnett Exelby and his obvious greatness in the lineup, could choke so hard when the chips were down. Don't worry, there's always the lottery to look forward to determine when the Thrashers will select the next prospect you'll grossly overrate. Of course, on that day, some of the Lightning's prospects (you know, the ones you regularly abuse your position to take a crap on) will still be playing hockey in the playoffs, not that anyone associated with "Blue Land" (they certainly "blue" tonight didn't they?) would know anything about playoffs. Hugs and kisses from your pals, The Bolt Prospects.com Staff

Thrashers Choke, Lightning In

In the words of Nelson from the Simpsons, [url=http://www.nhl.com/scores/htmlreports/20052006/GS021215.HTM]"Haaaa haaaa!"[/url] [img]http://www.saintsok.com/pages/medicallibrary/choke1.gif[/img] The Washington Capitals defeated the Atlanta Thrashers tonight to eliminate Atlanta from postseason contention and insure the Lightning a spot in the Stanley Cup playoffs. At present, the Lightning hold the #8 seed in the East, but if Montreal fails to pick up two points tomorrow night the Lightning could move up to the #7 seed in their final game.
