TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Kari Lehtonen plans to enjoy his fast start as long as he can.

Lehtonen had 34 saves in his second consecutive shutout, and Vyacheslav Kozlov scored a first-period goal as the Thrashers beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 1-0 on Monday night.

''It was just one of those days when everything seems to go your way,'' Lehtonen said. ''I try to do everything the same way, and sometimes the post helps me and sometimes I'm just able to get the great save. That's the most fun you can get out there. It's not going to last forever.''

Lehtonen, coming off a 6-0 win over Florida on Saturday, has five career shutouts. He has allowed two goals in three games this season.

Kozlov put Atlanta ahead 1-0 from the right circle at 12:26 of the first. The goal came after Tampa Bay defenceman Paul Ranger mishandled the puck in the Lightning zone.
