Maxim Afinogenov ended Atlanta's power-play
drought with a third-period goal to lift the Thrashers past the
Anaheim Ducks 2-1 on Tuesday night.
Johan Hedberg stopped 34 shots for Atlanta.
The Thrashers were 0-for-13 over a three-game stretch with a man advantage, including their first power play against Anaheim.
But Afinogenov scored from the right circle 4:03 into the third period.
The Thrashers are 5-4-1 since ending a nine-game winless streak.
The Ducks lost for the third time in their last 11 games.
Colby Armstrong gave Atlanta a 1-0 lead early in the second
period with his follow after Jonas Hiller stopped shots by Evander Kane and Ron Hainsey.
Steve Eminger's goal with 2:02 remaining in
the second tied the game.
