ATLANTA -- Pascal Leclaire is going to get another chance to save the Senators.

He will make his second straight start tonight as the Senators try to end their four-game losing skid against the Atlanta Thrashers tonight at Philips Arena.

Leclaire made 29 saves in the club's 4-1 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes at the RBC Center.

"We just have to get back to playing our game," said Senators winger Chris Neil.

The Thrashers are struggling mightily with only one win in their last 11 games. Expect to see Ondrej Pavelec, who made 50 saves in a 3-1 victory on Oct. 31 in Ottawa, make the start for Thrashers.

Centre Nick Antropov will be a game-time decision. If he plays former Senators centre Todd White, who hasn't scored in 34 games, could be a healthy scratch.

The Thrashers are coming off a 8-1 loss to the Washington Capitals Saturday at home.

"We want to get back up on the horse again and get going," said Atlanta coach John Anderson. "We have to be tougher in front of their net."
