(Sports Network) - The Atlanta Thrashers hit a speed bump a couple weeks back, but since then they seemingly have righted the ship.
Since a four-game skid, the Thrashers have won four of their last five (4-0-1) -- including three straight. On Thursday, Kari Lehtonen stopped 36 shots for his league-leading fourth shutout of the season to anchor a 5-0 win over Toronto at Philips Arena.
Marian Hossa recorded a hat trick and an assist and Scott Mellanby added a goal and two assists for the Thrashers, who snapped an eight-game losing streak against Toronto.
Brad Larsen had the other goal and Slava Kozlov added four assists for Atlanta.
Hossa leads the NHL with 39 points, two ahead of the Rangers' Jaromir Jagr, and leads the league in goals with 20, three ahead of the Rangers' Brendan Shanahan.
