Pittsburgh (4-6-5) at Atlanta (4-9-1), 7:00 pm EST
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.
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.
