Final Score: Atlanta 4, Ottawa 1

Ottawa, ON (Sports Network) - Colby Armstrong netted a pair of goals and Ondrej Pavelec made 28 saves to help the Atlanta Thrashers top the Ottawa Senators, 4-1.

Vyacheslav Kozlov scored on the power play as Atlanta snapped a three-game skid. Todd White added an empty-netter for the victors.

Martin Gerber, coming off a shutout, was beaten three times on 24 shots, and Chris Kelly registered the only Senators goal in the club's fourth loss in five games.

Kozlov redirected Ron Hainsey's shot from the point to score the game's first goal with 9:10 remaining in the first.

After a scoreless second period, Armstrong found the back of the net twice in the first 2:41 of the final stanza. His first came on a wrap-around with a man advantage at the 2:10 mark, and seconds later Armstrong was left wide open behind Gerber for an easy tap-in and a 3-0 lead.

Kelly spoiled Pavelec's shutout bid with 1:19 remaining on his third goal of the season, but White sealed the win on his empty-netter with 34 ticks left.
