Atlanta Thrashers Vs. Florida Panthers
November 2, 2008


Kari Lehtonen was out during this game and several games after it with back trouble. They called up Ondrej Pavelec from the Chicago Wolves to fill in as goaltender. Our seats were Section 311, Row A, so we were at the very front of the upper bowl.

The program.

Johan "Moose" Hedberg.

Erik Christensen and Marty Reasoner.

Ron Hainsey.


Looks like Pavs let a few get by him. ;)


Pavelec's mask has the Thrashers logo on one side and the Wolves on the other.

Exelby stretches it out.

Slava Kozlov seems to always be the one that rotates the puck to the different players during warm ups.




Jason Williams.

The game begins and Hainsey steps in on the defense.

Pavelec takes a rest during a TV time out.

Ilya Kovalchuk.


That is about to hurt.




Another goal by the "Little-White-Russian" line.

And there is much rejoicing.

Hockey tykes.









Crap, they got one.











I rather like this picture.






Everybody conga!





An empty net goal seals the Panthers' fate.





Kovalchuk was selected as the game's first star.
