Franzen, Hossa lead Red Wings over Thrashers

ATLANTA (AP) -- Johan Franzen had a goal and two assists and

former Atlanta star Marian Hossa scored his 36th goal to help

the Detroit Red Wings win their fourth straight game, 6-3, over

the Thrashers on Friday night.

Playing his first game in Atlanta since the Thrashers traded him

last year to Pittsburgh, Hossa was booed by maybe half of the

capacity crowd at Philips Arena. The building, however, was

about half-full of Detroit fans for the defending Stanley Cup

champion's first visit to Georgia since December 13, 2005.

Red Wings goalie Chris Osgood stopped 31 shots to earn his

fourth consecutive victory. The Red Wings, who lead the NHL

with 105 points, have won five straight on the road to improve

to 22-10-5 away from Joe Louis Arena.
