Coming into the night six points out of the final playoff spot in the East, the Thrashers’ playoff hopes took a crushing blow with their 11th loss in the last 13 games.

Colin Greening scored the only goal through the first two periods, and that on a shot that deflected off the skate of Atlanta defenseman Dustin Byfuglien. Bobby Butler made it 2-0 a minute into the third, before Byfuglien gave the Thrashers hope with his 19th goal.
