Atlanta loses its second hockey team to Canada


Atlanta, Georgia has a metro area population of more than 5 million people. They can support the Braves, Falcons, Hawks, Georgia Tech and Georgia State, but not hockey.

The Flames left for Calgary in 1980 and now they have lost the Thrashers to the Western Canada province of Winnipeg, Manitoba.

The struggling NHL franchise was sold to the True North Sports and Entertainment group that moves the team to Winnepeg where it’ll begin play next season.

This makes Atlanta the first city in the NHL’s modern history to lose two teams.

The team will play its game’s at the MTS Centre, a 15,000-seat arena.

Mason falters in goal again; Blue Jackets lose 6-3

The Columbus Blue Jackets ended their road trip through Western Canada losing to the last-place Edmonton Oilers, 6-3. The road trip wasn’t a total waste because they picked up two points for going into overtime against Calgary and Vancouver.

The trip also unveiled something very disturbing. The up-and-down play of 3rd year goalie Steve Mason, who is looking more and more like his record-setting rookie season which netted him the Calder Cup was a fluke.

The Edmonton loss saw Mason being pulled in the second period, the third time in his past four starts that has occurred.

By the time he was pulled by coach Scott Arniel for the start of the third period, Mason had allowed 6 goals on 28 shots and the game was essentially over.

Kristian Huselius, in only his second game back from a high-ankle sprain, had all three Blue Jackets goals, scoring his third career hat trick.

The game in Edmonton was really rewarding for CBJ player Ethan Moreau. The former Oilers captain, who was claimed off waivers this summer by Columbus, was honor by the Edmonton management before the game and received a standing ovation from the sold out crowd. Moreau spent 11 seasons in the province of Alberta.

The Columbus Blue Jackets tried to get their three-game road trip to Western Canada off to a good start, but to no avail despite a nice comeback try in Calgary, Alberta.

Jarome Iginla’s goal off a rebound shot at 3:49 of overtime, his second goal of the game, gave the Calgary Flames a 3-2 overtime win over the Jackets in the Scotiabank Saddledome before a crowd of 19,289.

Columbus fought back hard after falling behind in the first 4:25 of the game, with goals from Antoine Vermette, a short-hander in the second period and a power-play goal from Rick Nash with 4;19 remaining in the third period.

Goaltender Steve Mason was pulled by head coach Scott Arniel after allowing two goals on Calgary’s first four shots. Backup Mathieu Garon did a solid job in relief, stopping 20 of 21 shots.
