ATLANTA (Ticker) -- When the Pittsburgh Penguins hit the road to start November, they were struggling to keep their head above water. A week later, they're flying high and threatening to vault out of the Atlantic Division basement.

The Penguins will finish an impressive stretch of games on the road when they visit the Atlanta Thrashers on Wednesday.

Rookie sensation Sidney Crosby and Hall of Famer Mario Lemieux both scored in Pittsburgh's 3-2 win over the New York Rangers on Monday. Ziggy Palffy had the game-winner early in the third and Sebastien Caron made 35 saves as the Penguins improved to 3-1-0 to start the trip.

Crosby has three goals and two assists and Lemieux has five helpers in the four games.

The Penguins entered the swing 1-5-5, but that one win came against the Thrashers at home, a 7-5 triumph October 27. Lemieux was the catalyst with two goals and three assists and Sergei Gonchar added two scores and a helper as Pittsburgh rebounded from a 4-0 deficit.

In a 4-3 loss to Philadelphia on Saturday, Marian Hossa, Peter Bondra and Serge Aubin each scored but it was not enough for the Thrashers to overcome an early 2-0 deficit.

Pittsburgh's win last month kept with the tradition of the series. The Penguins are 18-3-0 all-time against Atlanta and have won nine of 10 meetings here.
