ATLANTA (Ticker) - The Atlanta Thrashers would like nothing more than to duplicate their last meeting with the Carolina Hurricanes.

The teams finish a home-and-home series on Friday and the Thrashers are within three points of the Southeast Division-leading Hurricanes.

Atlanta beat Carolina, 5-4, in overtime on Wednesday when Marian Hossa scored with 31 seconds to play in the extra session.

"We want to keep chasing them and keep winning those games," Atlanta's Ilya Kovalchuk said. "They're huge games. They didn't play their best game and we're playing pretty good. We've got more chances to win."

Atlanta has won the last two games against the Hurricanes, but has never beaten Carolina three times in the same season. Kovalchuk has 24 goals in 33 games against the Hurricanes.

Carolina has lost three straight for the first time this season. The Hurricanes are 9-14-1 in their last 24 games, allowing a league-high average of 3.71 goals.
