UNIONDALE, N.Y., Dec. 23 (UPI) -- Bryan Little's power-play goal in the third period -- his second score of the night -- was the game-winner Tuesday in a 4-2 Atlanta win over the N.Y. Islanders.

The Thrashers also got goals from Mathieu Schneider and Colby Armstrong. Ilya Kovalchuk had two assists -- the 500th and 501st in his career in his 500th NHL game.

Johan Hedberg came up with 23 stops for Atlanta, winners of two of its last three.

The Islanders' goals came from Andy Hilbert and Sean Bergenheim (short-handed).
