The Atlanta Thrashers got themselves a huge bonus when they signed veteran Maxim Afinogenov. Afinogenov scored with six seconds remaining in the third period to give the Atlanta Thrashers a 4-3 win over the Florida Panthers for their fourth consecutive victory. Afinogenov knocked in a 15-footer for his 11th goal off a pass from Nik Antropov, beating Florida goaltender Scott Clemmensen. "We had a great play first by Nik on the play before and then Max with the touch goal," said Atlanta goalie Johan Hedberg, who is 6-2-0 this season. Afinogenov, a 10-year veteran, signed as a free agent during the offseason after spending nine years with Buffalo and has already exceeded his scoring output of a year ago. "He's been a great surprise for us. It's like he's got a new lease on life being here and we're glad to have him," Atlanta coach John Anderson said.
