For the third game in a row, Ben Eager and Niclas Bergfors are the healthy scratches for the Thrashers, being replaced by Freddy Modin and Tim Stapleton, respectively. From Chris Vivlamore of the AJC:
Craig Ramsay has been true to his word that it won’t be easy to get back in the lineup. Ben Eager and Niclas Bergfors will be the healthy scratches at forward for the Thrashers game tonight against Tampa Bay. This will be the third straight game they have missed. Freddy Meyer will be out on defense.
