ATLANTA (Ticker) - Ilya Kovalchuk and the Atlanta Thrashers made the Boston Bruins pay for their mistakes.

Kovalchuk scored three power-play goals and added an assist and Marian Hossa netted his league-leading 13th tally as the Thrashers won their third straight game, a 5-3 victory over the Bruins.

Off to the best 17-game start in franchise history (11-3-3), the Thrashers won their fourth straight game over Boston with four power-play goals against a squad which entered tied for 28th in penalty killing.

Kovalchuk, who scored 52 goals last season, recorded his second hat trick of the campaign to tie Brendan Shanahan of the New York Rangers for second place in goals (12), one behind Hossa.

After Atlanta jumped to a 1-0 lead on Vyacheslav Kozlov's power-play tally at 2:59 of the opening period, Kovalchuk netted his first of the game on a one-timer off defensemen Steve McCarthy's cross-ice feed nearly five minutes later.

Patrice Bergeron halved the deficit for the Bruins in the second period before Kovalchuk struck again at 6:20 of the third with a blast from the right point that found the top-left corner past goaltender Tim Thomas for a 3-1 lead.

He did it again. That's just creepy.

If Anaheim loses, Atlanta ties Buffalo for the lead league.

Wow! All 3 goals were from the point on the powerplay absolute rockets. They were all amazing. Glad to see him do it again. Not to mention he got an assist along with it.

Keep it up Kovy!
