ATLANTA (AP) - Marian Hossa knew the Atlanta Thrashers needed to play well the entire game, not just one period.

Hossa had two goals and an assist, and Kari Lehtonen stopped 22 shots to power the Atlanta Thrashers to a 6-0 win over the Florida Panthers on Saturday night.

Vyacheslav Kozlov added a goal and two assists for the Thrashers, who lost a 3-2 shootout to Tampa Bay in their season opener on Thursday night.

"The first game we played good in the first period, but we did not in the other two," Hossa said of the opener in which the Thrashers scored two first-period goals then went scoreless.

"Tonight we knew we had to play a full 60 minutes. We did everything right tonight and Kari was awesome."
