1. Bryan Little, Thrashers -- Another two goals for the club's No.-2 scorer.
2. Ilya Kovalchuk, Thrashers -- One goal and one helper for the franchise player.
3. Craig Conroy, Flames -- One of a very small group of players to be strong all game.
PENALTY KILL: D
Atlanta defenceman Tobias Enstrom is a little-known entity outside of the deep south, but the small-in-stature blueliner deserves more accolades. He played more than 25 minutes and scored a goal-scorer's goal.
WHY FLAMES LOST
Because of a bad goal to start the game, too little mustered at the other end and a dreadful second period by a Flames team that is not playing with enough enthusiasm against teams they should be beating.
GOAL OF THE GAME
Tobias Enstrom's first-period go-ahead goal was perfectly placed with a screen in front of Miikka Kiprusoff. He put a point shot just inside the far post, taking a little off his shot to have more accuracy.
FLAMES -- RW David Moss, D Adam Pardy, LW Todd Bertuzzi (knee), C Daymond Langkow (hand), D Mark Giordano (shoulder), LW Rene Bourque (ankle), C Wayne Primeau (broken foot), D Rhett Warrener (shoulder).
THRASHERS -- None.
FRIDAY: Calgary Flames at New Jersey Devils, 5 p.m., Pay per view, FAN960.
RW David Moss missed the game due to a "bereavement" issue in his family. That's why the Flames summoned two players -- LW David Van Der Gulik and LW Brett Sutter -- from the minors and sent down only RW Kris Chucko ... Jarome Iginla's third-period goal gives him 30 on the season, the eighth straight campaign he's reached that mark ... The top-line trio of Iginla, Olli Jokinen and Michael Cammalleri combined for a minus-8 rating.
