Line Up Changes For Tonight's Thrashers At Islanders Game

Chris Vivlamore has a few line-up tweaks in his latest blog. Coach Craig Ramsay has moved Rob Schremp to center for tonight. Schremp is, by trade, a centerman, and Ramsay would like to see what he can do there. Eric Boulton is out tonight to rest some facial lacerations after he was hit with a puck in last Saturday’s game. Ben Maxwell will get his third start so far with the Thrashers.

Interestingly enough, Chris Mason is getting tonight’s start against the Islanders, while Ondrej Pavelec will be playing Vancouver tomorrow night. The last time the Thrashers were in New York, Mason allowed four goals in a wild 5-4 Thrashers win that very nearly got away from them. Pavs, however, is 1-1 against the Isles this season and has a 2.48 GAA and a .919 save percentage.

I would have expected Mason to start against Vancouver, a team that he is very familiar with, rather than the Islanders.
