After playing in his 600th career win last night, Brent Sopel will be the healthy scratch tonight per his own Twitter account (Twitter is blocked here at work – I’ll find an alternate link). That leaves Noah Welch as the 6th defenseman.
Mathieu Garon, as I mentioned before, is a Thrasher killer. How much so? He is 4-0-0 with a 1.00 GAA and two shutouts against the Thrashers. Yipe. That’s pretty brutal stuff right there.
