(Sports Network) - The Atlanta Thrashers try to resume their control of the Florida Panthers tonight when the teams meet at Philips Arena.

Atlanta is 3-0-0 against Florida this season, having outscored the Panthers by a combined 16-5 margin. Overall the Thrashers have won six of the last seven and eight of the last 10 clashes in the series.

The Thrashers are, however, on the rebound after Friday's 3-2 overtime loss in Tampa. Martin St. Louis scored the game-winner with 2:35 left in OT to lift the Lightning.

Jason Krog and Steve Rucchin had a goal apiece for Atlanta, and Kari Lehtonen stopped 30 shots in the loss. The Thrashers have lost five of their last six games.

Atlanta lost a 2-1 lead late in regulation, as Tampa Bay's Dan Boyle scored his second goal of the match with 21 seconds on the clock to force overtime.

Ilya Kovalchuk, Marian Hossa and Slava Kozlov, the team's top three scorers, were all held point-less on Friday. It was the second time in three games that this has happened.

The Thrashers will visit the NY Rangers on Tuesday.
