NEW YORK - Kari Lehtonen made 39 saves and then stopped two more shots in the shootout, as the Atlanta Thrashers beat the New York Rangers 2-1 on Tuesday night.

The Thrashers were primed to win 1-0 on Joe Motzko's third-period goal before Markus Naslund got the Rangers even with only 10.7 seconds remaining in regulation.

Naslund then started the shootout with a goal, but Lehtonen turned aside Nikolai Zherdev and Fredrik Sjostrom.

Bryan Little and Slava Kozlov scored on Atlanta's attempts to help the Thrashers snap a four-game losing streak. New York has lost three straight.
