At the 11:35 mark of the third period, with game tied 3-3, Little was in the circle to take a shorthanded draw to the left of Dipietro. As the puck was dropped, Little gave it a quick whack as it slowly floated toward the net, beating the Islanders goaltender as he was caught napping in his crease.
The look on Dipietro's face in the moment after the goal says it all.
In a game that was decided by one goal, that's a big one. The Thrashers scored four goals in the third period on their way to the win. For the Islanders, it's their fifth loss in a row and 19th in their past 20 games.
