Thrashers Vs. Islanders: Andrew Ladd Scores Team Leading 27th Goal; Thrashers Up 1-0

In what could be seen as a major turn-around from Saturday night, the Thrashers played an extremely solid period for a road game. They didn’t necessarily control the puck the entire time, but they were effective at clearing the zone, and weren’t scared to go where they needed to go to prevent the Islanders from getting looks at the net. Chris Mason hasn’t been particularly active so far, having to face only three shots the whole period. The Islanders didn’t get a shot off on their power play, after Anthony Stewart got called for delay of game.

Captain Andrew Ladd scored his 27th goal at 7:56 into the period, flicking one into the net past Islanders goalie Al Montoya. The Thrashers fired twelve shots on goal, despite not having gone on the power play. The Islanders’ defense isn’t really effective at clearing pucks, and it’s showing in this game so far.
