Hossa Leads Thrashers Past Red Wings

Marian Hossa scored a natural hat trick to open the scoring for the Thrashers Tuesday night and the Detroit Red Wings never recovered as Atlanta cruised to a 5-1 victory.

Hossa scored twice on the power play and once at even-strength in the first 21:14 of the game, earning his seventh career hat trick.

The first power play goal came at 7:33, when Hossa skated out of the corner and moved out front of the goal untouched, putting a shot past Chris Osgood.

Hossa's second game at with 5:38 left in the period. Brett Lebda missed the puck while retreating at center ice and Hossa pounced on it, jumping past him and skating in on goal alone before throwing a quick shot by Osgood.

Wide open in the slot on a power play, Hossa scored his third goal at 1:14 of the second. Todd White drew two defenders to him along the boards and the already-shorthanded Wings couldn't cover Hossa when he took a pass and rifled a shot into the net.

Atlanta would get a power play goal from Eric Perrin and a late goal by former Red Wing Slava Kozlov to wrap up the scoring.

Niklas Kronwall scored Detroit's only goal.

Osgood stopped 13 of 17 shots against before being replaced in net by Dominik Hasek. Hasek allowed the game's final goal, stopping seven of eight shots. Kari Lehtonen made 46 saves on Detroit's 47 shots.

I guess if there's a night to have a bad feed (keeps getting scrambly and the sound goes out), this is the one.

Yeah, these games happen. Forget about it and get ready for the next one. Babcock's been saying he wanted some adversity anyway, not a cakewalk to the playoffs.

Was this a thumping by the Thrashers, or a Thrashing by the Thumpers?? ... <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/rolleyes.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":rolleyes:" border="0" alt="rolleyes.gif" />

I think we can solve by putting the power line of Pavel, 'Zata' (what everyone appears to be calling him now 0_O), and Homer. <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/rolleyes.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":rolleyes:" border="0" alt="rolleyes.gif" />

The thing that everbody need to keep in mind is we are in the second half of the season and points are starting to become important, so we can expect everyone to step up their game.

Turn your head sideways to see it's a laughing smiley face? (no need to say that, lots of people ask me what it means. ._.)It's a person laughing so hard their eyes are squinted and with a big smile, I reckon?
