(Dr.) Bob Hartley Is Angry

And while I'm not all that fond of the guy all the time, I am especially not fond of him when he's angry...

"Tonight is very simple," Thrashers coach Bob Hartley said. "It all turns around [Ilya] Kovalchuk's giveaway. We have the game under control. We're playing the perfect game. Why does he fool around the blue line with the puck, I will never know."

A frustrated Hartley continued.

"It's definitely frustrating when you see supposedly your franchise player playing like this," he said. "It's just a matter of knowing how to win, plain and simple."

Hartley's comments were made after Kovalchuk had addressed the media and left the locker room.

This is exactly why the idea of playing the Thrashers after a loss, especially like the one they had last night in Joysey, is one that does not exactly give me warm fuzzies. With two points AND a four point Southeast Division lead on the line tonight, you know Hartley is most likely going to have his team turning up the goonery to MAX...ESPECIALLY considering how the Canes are undefeated against the Birds thus far this season.

Dudeman has a high tendency to be a nutcase, and that may or may not get revealed in the game plan tonight. For the Canes' sake, especially in regards to the injury bug, I'm hoping for the latter.
