ATLANTA - Johan Franzen had a goal and two assists, and former Atlanta star Marian Hossa scored his 36th goal to help the Detroit Red Wings win their fourth straight game, 6-3 over the Thrashers on Friday night.
Playing his first game in Atlanta since the Thrashers traded him last year to Pittsburgh, Hossa was booed by half of the capacity crowd at Philips Arena.
The building, however, was about half-full of Detroit fans for the defending Stanley Cup champion's first visit to Georgia since Dec. 13, 2005.
Red Wings goalie Chris Osgood stopped 31 shots to earn his fourth consecutive victory. The Red Wings, who lead the NHL with 105 points, have won five straight on the road to improve to 22-10-5 away from Joe Louis Arena.
