Thrashers Snap Bruins’ Winning Streak In Shootout

By TOM SALADINO For The Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) – Tim Stapleton and Bryan Little scored in the first two rounds of a shootout and Toby Enstrom had two power-play goals in the Atlanta Thrashers’ 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins on Thursday night.

The Thrashers snapped a four-game losing streak and ended the Bruins’ winning streak at three.  Stapleton, who doesn’t have a point this season, beat Tim Thomas with a shot through the legs to open the shootout.

Atlanta’s Ondrej Pavelec stopped Boston’s Tyler’s bid before Little put the puck past Thomas.

Pavelec then wrapped up his eighth victory in his last 10 home games, stopping Blake Wheeler.  Wheeler and Patrice Bergeron scored in regulation for Boston.
