From Brittanica.com: (A Thrasher is) any of numerous New World birds with downcurved bills, noted for noisy foraging on the ground in dense thickets and for loud varied songs.
Noisy foraging and varied songs: a frightful combination. More frightening, however, is Atlanta's 37 points in 31 games. No one predicted that. Ilya Kovalchuk - of course - leads the club with 17 goals.
How does Nathan Horton possibly top a four-point evening? By keeping up the point-a-game pace he had established in the days before. That's how, cuz he ain't banging out another hat trick.
