ATLANTA (Ticker) -- The Atlanta Thrashers hope to keep their postseason push going Saturday when they face the Philadelphia Flyers, who are watching their playoff spot slip away by the game.

Atlanta has won eight of its last 10 games to move within one point of Montreal for the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference standings. Rookie Kari Lehtonen, who has started each contest in that stretch, made 28 saves Thursday in a 4-2 win over the New York Islanders.

Marian Hossa collected a goal and an assist for the Thrashers, who certainly are faring much better than their opponent Saturday.

The Flyers have gone 3-5-1 since the Olympic break, with their latest setback coming Friday in a 6-3 loss to Tampa Bay. Peter Forsberg scored for Philadelphia but committed a late turnover that led to the decisive goal.

Philadelphia is 16-3-1 with three ties all-time against Atlanta. This season, the Flyers are 2-0-1 in three matchups, including a 4-3 triumph in the last meeting on December 28 as Sami Kapanen scored the game-winner 13 seconds into overtime.
