DENVER (Ticker) — The Atlanta Thrashers will go for their first
three-game winning streak in more than a month Tuesday when they
visit the Colorado Avalanche.

Coming off a 3-1 homestand that lifted them out of last place in
the Southeast Division, the Thrashers hit the road in six of
their next eight.

Following a 2-0 win over Montreal Friday, Bryan Little scored a
pair of goals in a 5-2 win over Calgary on Sunday.

The Thrashers last won three straight from January 16-20.

Colorado will be looking to build on its first win in seven
games Sunday, a 5-1 victory at Chicago, snapping a five-game
skid on the road and a string of six straight losses overall.

Marek Svatos and Ryan Smyth each recorded a goal and an assist
in the win and Peter Budaj stopped 24 shots to snap a personal
five-game losing streak.
