Modin, who won the Stanley Cup in 2004 with the Tampa Bay Lightning, has 3 goals and 10 pints in 36 games for the Thrashers this season. The Flames have surged into the top eight of the Western Conference after being near the bottom of the NHL standings as late as mid-December.
We don't have any excuses tonight. Excuses are for losers. We've played with five defensemen before and it didn't affect us. We just had a bad second period and it cost us the game. We have to look in the mirror and blame ourselves.
— Bruins coach Claude Julien on his team's play with the loss of defenseman Johnny Boychuk
