Thrashers D Tobias Enstrom to miss all-star weekend with broken right finger

ATLANTA – Atlanta Thrashers defenceman Tobias Enstrom will be sidelined two to four weeks because of a broken finger and miss the NHL all-star game this weekend.

Enstrom had set a franchise record by playing in 296 consecutive games. The streak ended Sunday because of the injury to his right hand.
