TAMPA, Florida (Ticker) - Two teams that battled for the Southeast Division title last season will face off on Saturday when the Atlanta Thrashers take on the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Thrashers claimed the division title in 2006-07 with 97 points, four more than the second-place Lightning.

The Lightning are off to a strong start, winning their first contest, 3-1, over the New Jersey Devils on Thursday. Tampa Bay's stars rose to the occasion as captain Vincent Lecavalier scored two goals while right wing Martin St. Louis notched three assists.

Both players are coming off tremendous seasons as Lecavalier led the NHL with 52 goals while St. Louis registered his first 100-point season of his career, logging 102 in 2006-07.

The Thrashers dropped their season opener on Friday night, losing 3-1, to the Washington Capitals. Rookie Bryan Little scored his first NHL goal on a backhanded shot with five minutes left in the second period. Little was a first-round selection for Atlanta during the 2006 draft.

Despite allowing three goals, Thrashers goaltender Kari Lehtonen made 37 saves on Friday, as his team was outshot 40-29.
