Dan Snyder Remembered

Tonight, the Thrashers organization paid tribute to #37. Dan Snyder was tragically killed in a car accident. "He'll have to live with that the rest of his life," said Pens Hall of Fame announcer Mike Lange during the game about the perp responsible, Danny Heatly.

Also, Kovalchuk was going for a 40 goal season. You could tell how hard he was trying when all of his teammates were just serving it up to him every chance they got. Ilya had 8 or 9 shots all by himself in the first period. He was so visibly frustrated at how Pens goalie J.S. Aubin covered him well by stopping every chance.

However, Kovalchuk would not be denied! He got a goal with less than 30 seconds remaining in the game to make it an even 40 goals during the regular season. Hollywood can't come up with such natural drama!

He gets one more chance to tack on more goals during the Thrashers last game of the year against their division rival Tampa Bay.
