Exelby OT goal sends Thrashers to win

Sep 18, 2007 - 3:24 AM NORTH BAY, Ontario (Ticker) -- Garnet Exelby's goal just over a minute into overtime was enough to give the Atlanta Thrashers a 4-3 win in exhibition play on Monday.

Exelby ended the contest at 1:13 in the extra session, when he found the back of the net past Islanders' netminder Joey MacDonald. Bryan Little assisted on the goal.

Atlanta took a 3-1 lead at 15:32 of the second period on right winger Joseph Crabb's second goal of the game.

However, the Islanders cut the lead in half just 29 seconds later when defenseman Matthew Spiller tallied the first of two goals. He tied the contest, 3-3, at 7:56 of the third period on a goal assisted by Tim Jackman and Frans Nielsen.

Johan Hedberg made 25 saves for the Thrashers and MacDonald stopped 30 shots.
