Thrashers continue homestand against Canadiens

Montreal (34-23-7) at Atlanta (23-35-6), 7:30 p.m. EST

ATLANTA (Ticker) -- The Atlanta Thrashers continue their

four-game homestand against goaltender Carey Price and the

Montreal Canadiens on Friday.

Atlanta opened its stay at Philips Arena with a 5-3 victory over

the Carolina Hurricanes on February 28, but faltered in a 4-3

setback to the Florida Panthers on Tuesday.

The Thrashers have scored three or more goals in each of their

last four contests.

Montreal, meanwhile, is coming off a 5-1 loss to the Buffalo

Sabres on Wednesday. The Canadiens had won four in a row after

suffering a stretch that saw them drop seven of eight.

Price, who had recently lost his starting job to Jaroslav Halak,

got the start and failed to notch his first road win of the

calendar year (0-7-1).

Despite its struggles, Montreal still remains fifth in the

crowed Eastern Conference with 75 points.
