No Letup, Boys!

Rangers2, Thrashers 1.
An early flukey goal on an innocent dump-in by Sean Avery gave the Rangers a lead that held up untill early in the 3rd period, when Atlanta tied it up on a goal by Ilya Kovalchuk. Late in the game, Avery set up Brendan Shanahan for a wide open one-timer from the slot. Brilliant pass by Avery, who changed his mind while in the act of shooting to send the puck over to the streaking Shanahan. Avery doesn't wear a letter on his sweater, but he's turned out to be so much more than an agitator; the guy is a hard working leader on the ice, willing to take a lot of gloves and sticks to the face to get the job done.

Henrik Lundqvist and his Atlanta counterpart Johan Hedberg have both been brilliant in goal; other than the fluker by Avery, there's been nothing cheap getting past either netminder.
