Per Chris Vivlamore of the AJC, Zach Bogosian’s back in tonight, so we’ll miss out on Freddy Meyer accidentally starting another line brawl. Nik Antropov may or may not start tonight – he and Tim Stapleton’ll both participate in pre-game skate. Ben Eager is also back in, which makes one of the two of them and Niclas Bergfors the healthy scratches.
Bergfors hasn’t played in a game since December 16th’s overtime loss against Carolina. He only registered two shots on goal in 7:40 minutes. According to HFBoards user, and frequent BWA commenter Ashe, the Thrashers tend to play a bit better with Bergie in the line-up, but like I’ve always said – I’m not coach Ramsay, so I won’t comment on the reasons that Bergfors may or may not play.
