(Sports Network) - The Atlanta Thrashers try to push their latest winning streak to five games tonight when they visit the struggling Toronto Maple Leafs at Air Canada Centre.

The Southeast Division leaders are coming off Saturday's 3-1 road win in Florida. Kari Lehtonen stopped 27 shots as the Thrashers continued their domination of Panthers. Atlanta has defeated Florida in all five matchups this season and outscored the Panthers, 20-6.

J.P. Vigier, Glen Metropolit and Ilya Kovalchuk all scored goals for the Thrashers, who have won five of their last six games.

Atlanta's Marian Hossa did not post a point in Saturday's win, but was named one of the NHL's "Three Stars of the Week" on Monday. He was named third star after finishing the week second among all NHL scorers with eight points (4g, 4a) in two consecutive four-point games. He began the week with a goal and three assists in the Thrashers' 5-4 overtime win against the New York Rangers a week ago, then recorded his first hat trick of the season and added an assist in Atlanta's 5-0 shutout of Toronto on Thursday.

Atlanta will finish a three-game road trip on Thursday in Tampa.
