ATLANTA - Atlanta newcomer Niclas Bergfors scored the go-ahead goal with 4:26 left and the Thrashers beat the Florida Panthers 4-2 on Saturday night to end a three-game winless streak.

Bergfors had 14 goals this season.

Evander Kane added an empty-net goal for Atlanta, his 12th, with 1:14 left.

Radek Dvorak scored twice in the first period to give Florida a 2-0 lead, but the Thrashers' Max Afinogenov and Bryan Little countered in the second.
