Next for Thrashers
Who: vs. Penguins

* The Thrashers conclude their season with the non-televised game against the Penguins. They are coming off Friday’s 6-1 loss to the Hurricanes.
* The Penguins are coming off Friday’s 4-3 shootout win over the Islanders. It was their third straight win and they still have a chance, pending the Flyers game Saturday, to win the Atlanta Division and second seed in the Eastern Conference.
* Andrew Ladd (one goal, two assists) and Blake Wheeler (two goals, two assists) have three-game point streaks for the Thrashers.
* The Thrashers will hand out their season-ending awards for the Players’ Player, MVP and the Dan Snyder Memorial Trophy.
* Defenseman Tobias Enstrom (shoulder) and forward Radek Dvorak (concussion-like symptoms) are out. Eric Boulton (knee) practiced Saturday but is questionable. Chris Mason will start in goal.
