Thrashers aim for winning streak at Avalanche

Atlanta (25-35-6) at Colorado (29-36-1) 9:00 p.m. EST

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.
