Face-Off Winning Percentages Shine In Thrashers' Loss

One other positive note to take away from the game, as pointed out by the AJC’s Chris Vivlamore: Rich Peverley was 13 for 16 in the face off circle (81%) and Alexander Burmistrov was eight for 12 (67%). Winning face offs is key to puck control, especially in your own end. This could account for the Kings’ problems scoring in the first and second periods.
