ATLANTA (AP) - Marian Hossa registered his second three-goal game of the season as the Atlanta Thrashers defeated Los Angeles 6-2 on Tuesday night to spoil the start for Kings goalie Yutaka Fukufuji.

Fukufuji, the NHL's first Japanese-born player, was lifted less than two minutes into the second period after Jim Slater's deflection gave the Thrashers a 3-1 lead. He stopped only 6-of-9 shots.

Los Angeles closed to within 3-2 when Tom Kostopoulos scored just over two minutes into the third. But Hossa, who will represent the Thrashers at next week's NHL all-star game, scored two more times to cement the victory.

Hossa has 29 goals for the season.
