Atlanta's Kari Lehtonen is finally healthy this year and playing outstanding, stopping 18 of 20 shots tonight to go to 6-1-1 on the year. They are also fortunate to have superstars Marian Hossa and Ilya Kovalchuk who combined for three goals tonight - for Hossa his 8th and 9th goals on the year. This may finally be the year that the Thrashers are a threat in the East, if these three can stay healthy.
The Panthers lost for the third time in four games and these two teams will meet for the third time in this young season on Tuesday night, thanks to the powers that be who have decided that you can never have too many Atlanta - Florida games..
