Thrashers aim to end recent struggles

Atlanta (9-16-4) at Ottawa (11-12-5), 7:30 p.m. EST

OTTAWA (Ticker) -- The Atlanta Thrashers hope to snap a

three-game losing streak when they visit the Ottawa Senators on

Tuesday.

Atlanta is 2-9-2 over its last 13 contests and was swept in a

home-and-home series with the Boston Bruins last weekend. The

Thrashers dropped the opener at home, 7-3, on Friday before

losing 4-2 at Boston on Saturday.

Defenseman Nathan Oystrick had a goal and an assist in the

Saturday's loss for Atlanta, which is allowing a league-worst

3.69 goals per game.

Ottawa snapped a three-game skid with Saturday's 2-0 shutout of

Tampa Bay.

Martin Gerber made 24 saves for his first blanking of the season

- 10th of his career - and Alexandre Picard scored his first

career goal in the Senators win.

Ottawa recorded a 5-1 home victory against Atlanta on December

3.
