Wings vs. Thrashers in review 11/25/09

Atlanta goal (1-0) 5:02 in 1st period; Antropov from Afinogenov & Kozlov:
A complete defensive break down leads to a goal that's way too easy. Ville Leino gets caught playing too far up in the zone and isn't able to catch Antropov as he streaks towards the goal. Jimmy Howard is unable to get across the crease in time to stop the puck, and Antropov just taps the puck in off a nice cross-crease pass from Afinogenov.

Atlanta goal (2-0) 9:08 in 2nd period; Kozlov from Kovalchuk & White:
This one was admittedly very pretty. Kovalchuk threads a needle from blue line to blue line, finding Kozlov in between Lidstrom and Rafalski. Kozlov has a step on both of the d-men and he's off to the races as soon as he gets the puck. Kozlov makes one move and beats Howard five-hole.
