ATLANTA (AP) - Free-agent newcomer Nik Antropov scored his first goal for Atlanta, and Josh Gratton added two goals in the Thrashers' 5-4 exhibition victory over the Nashville Predators on Wednesday night.

Antropov had three assists in his debut Monday night in a 4-2 home win over Carolina. He signed a four-year, $16 million contract with Atlanta after playing for Toronto and the New York Rangers last season.

Bryan Little and Joey Crabb added goals for Atlanta (2-1-1). Martin Erat scored twice for Nashville (3-1-0), and Peter Olvecky and Mike Santorelli also scored.
