OTTAWA - The Atlanta Thrashers announced today that their home game at Philips Arena against the Ottawa Senators on Monday, Jan. 2, originally scheduled for 7 p.m., has been changed to a 3 p.m. (ET) start time.
With the Sugar Bowl collegiate football game now scheduled for Monday, Jan. 2, at 8:30 p.m. at Atlanta's Georgia Dome, the Thrashers requested the change in start time to better accommodate their fans, as well as all Atlanta sports fans.
