Recap

Fredrik Modin and Andrew Ladd each recorded a goal and an assist as the Atlanta Thrashers ended a three-game losing streak Thursday with a 5-1 victory over the visiting Minnesota Wild.

Defensemen Dustin Byfuglien and Tobias Enstrom notched two assists apiece while Ondrej Pavelec made 32 saves in posting his first win of the season for the Thrashers, who improved to 3-6-1 all-time against the Wild.

Ben Eager opened the scoring at 3:24 of the first period and Jim Slater tallied 10 minutes later to give Atlanta a 2-0 lead. Ladd beat Niklas Backstrom with a wrist shot with 45 seconds remaining in the middle session for his sixth goal of the season.

Antti Miettinen got Minnesota on the board with a power-play tally at 3:15 of the third, but Modin scored a shorthander less than three minutes later to restore Atlanta's three-goal bulge. Nik Antropov capped the scoring with five minutes left.

Backstrom stopped 29 shots for the Wild, who had won three in a row and lost in regulation at Philips Arena for the first time in five all-time visits (3-1-1).
