TUESDAY NIGHT AT ATLANTA

ATLANTA THRASHERS (22-20-7) 4

TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS (17-25-9) 3

STREAKING PHIL

Winger Phil Kessel has put together a six-game points streak (one goal and six assists), which ties the team season highs of Mikhail Grabovski and Niklas Hagman and matches the best streak of any Leaf from last season.

Ironically, Kessel's shot total has diminished during the past few games.

ON THIN ICE

Forward Rickard (no goals in 35 games) Wallin not only came out of the press box, he was in the starting five and found himself all alone in front of Thrashers goaltender Ondrej Pavelec on his first shift. However, he was too anxious.

Wallin's future as a starter is in doubt with Wayne Primeau on the verge of returning.

BLAKE BRUISED

After suffering a knee-on-knee hit the night before in Nashville, Jason Blake took a Tobias Enstrom drive off his visor.
