Very intense game, but didnt end well for the Thrashers.

First period, at 9:54, S. Hartnell (PHI) scored his 17th goal on the year to give the Flyers the early 1-0 lead. Then, the wheels fell off for the Thrashers. At 17:55, D. Powe (PHI) scored his 2nd goal of the season.

Second period, at 1:44, R. Jones (PHI) scored his 1st goal of the season to make the lead 3-0 Flyers. That was all the scoring in the middle frame.

To begin the last, the Thrashers down 3-0, something happened. Finally, the Thrashers came up with a goal at 4:42 by E. Perrin (ATL) to give him 5 on the season, making it 3-1. Then, Captain I. Kovalchuk (ATL) scored his 20th on the year at 9:48 to make it 3-2. Suddenly, C. Thorburn (ATL) scored his 6th on the season at 10:49 to tie it up at 3-3! However, it wouldnt end so great.....At 12:12, M. Knuble (PHI) scored his 17th of the season to make it 4-3 Flyers. With the Thrashers hoping to tie it, they pull goalie K. Lehtonen for the extra skater. Then, on a loose puck, M. Knuble (PHI) grabs it and shoots from across ice to tack on to make it 5-3, giving him his 18th on the season, at 19:19 in the game.

Thrashers are off for the All-Star break obviously. They return to action with a record of 17-26-5, on Tuesday, January 27th as they travel to Dallas to take on the Stars at 8:00 P.M.
