Defenseman Brent Sopel Out For The Thrashers; Fun Matheu Garon Stat

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.

Also, tonight's tentative line-pairings can be found at's site: Atlanta's here and Columbus' here.
