Gagne was awarded a penalty shot after Andy Sutton shot a loose stick on the ice toward him; Gagne beat goaltender Pasi Nurminen for his 17th goal. Alexei Zhamnov, playing his first game with the Flyers, waited for the officials to review the play thinking he could take the shot; however, Gagne was required to take it because the loose stick came at him.

  • 2007 -- February 3 -- Antero Niittymaki made 32 saves on 33 shots in Philly's 5-2 road win. The Flyers scored four third period goals including the eventual game-winner by Mike York after a lengthy review determined his stick was not above the crossbar. Jeff Carter's insurance tally came via a short-handed breakaway. Robert Esche left before the seven minute mark due to a neck injury and was replaced by Niittymaki who improved to 6-0 against the Thrashers.

Scott Hartnell added three points in the four-goal flurry including a SHG at 19:59+. Antero Niittymaki made 27 saves and the Flyers beat Atlanta for the eighth straight meeting.

  • 2008 -- March 18 -- Antero Niittymaki's sparkling save off Ilya Kovalchuk's shot in the final seconds proved to be one of the most important moments in the season as the Flyers, winless in their last four, beat Atlanta 3-2 and finished the season with a 7-1-1 streak to lift them into the playoffs. Up 3-1 in the last minute, the Flyers' lead was cut to 3-2 when Kovalchuk scored his 50th at 19:30. He then nearly evened the game with about three seconds to play on a bullet but Niittymaki made the ideal save -- a save which floored the talented Atlanta forward in disbelief. Niittymaki improved to 9-0 (15 GA) in his career against Atlanta. Philly held a 47-19 shots advantage. Game highlights: http://thrashers.nhl.tv/team/console...0072008,2,1097

The Flyers improved to 13-0-1 in the last three seasons against the Thrashers. Niittymaki improved to 11-0 in his career against Atlanta. Thrashers' coach John Anderson said of the Flyers' goalie "He played decent tonight. I don't think he was the difference. I don't take any stock in that."

I've been thinking maybe we shouldn't count on Nitty every single time because if he's not available one of these days, we could have a lack of confidence going with Marty.

But yeah, definitely start Nitty as much as possible against atl. These points are enormous come march.

Ah! MSE, I understand perfectly now. Toxic Waltz is great for the Thrashers.

If Nitty doesn't play tomorrow, I'm out all my goalie stats for the week in one of my fh leagues. I know some people could give a **** about fantasy, but if anyone hears anything new in the next 50 minutes, I sure would appreciate the post.

Honestly I don't think there's anyway that Nitty doesn't start against the Thrashers...it's just what he does.

I have a bad feeling. This will be a bigger test than the game against MON. ATL will prolly wanna avenge the embarrassment they were on national TV against us. Flyers better keep their play up.

I just do not see it. ATL better then MON? How is it a bigger test?

This is a must win.

Atlanta has been playing better than Montreal recently.

I just hope the Flyers don't get cocky. We own Atlanta, but they are hot right now and shouldn't be underestimated.

awesome GDT as usual MSE.

Flyers tend to play good against atlanta, especially nitty. But trashers have been playing good lately also. Hopefully last nights win gives them a confidence boost and they build on that. It was the best game they've played this season so far.

Woo! Nothing better than a Flyers-Thrashers game!

This game was supposed to be the pick-me-up after the Habs killed us.

But no!

I can just see them finally breaking through Niitty, though. Here's to that not happening.

*fingers crossed, just in case*

Otherwise, I look forward to the drubbing. We need to pad Carter/Gags goal totals.

EDIT:

# 44 Kimmo Timonen -- 47 Luca Sbisa
# 5 Braydon Coburn -- 25 Matt Carle
# 3 Lasse Kukkonen -- 41 Andrew Albert

Were the top two pairings like that against the Habs? I like.

i think trashers are on a 5 or 6 game win streak. I know we own them and all but still gota be careful.

Great GDT! Thrashers are due for a loss? Yeahhhh

Last 10, we've been 6-3-1. Record is 6-6-4. Goddammit, those first few **** games killed us.

Everytime we play them I am always amazed by these numbers. And they keep getting better. Let's add to it tonight!!

I bet 2200 vcash on this. Let's Go Flyers!
