Two Goals Two Minutes Apart Bring Thrashers Within Two

Tobias Enstrom scored (assists from Niclas Bergfors and Andrew Ladd) on a rare shot for the diminutive Swede. Enstrom is being pushed by the coaching staff to shoot more often – he’s got a strong shot, but his game consists on passing to the right point on the powerplay. Enstrom and Bogosian make up the first powerplay point pairing, and tonight’s was successful.

The second Thrashers’ goal came from Ben Eager with a bank in off the post behind Mike Smith. Thrashers’ SOG at the end of the 2nd period were up to twenty two shots on goal, and the Lightning were up to 29. The gap’s closing, but 29 shots on goal after two periods is entirely too high.
