BOSTON (AP) -Marian Hossa scored the game-winner and Alexei Zhitnik had an assist in his Atlanta debut to lead the Thrashers to a 3-2 win over the Boston Bruins on Monday night.

Eric Belanger had a goal and an assist and Scott Mellanby also scored for the Thrashers, who set a franchise record with their 18th road victory.

Shean Donovan and Brad Boyes each scored for Boston, which lost its second straight following a four-game winning streak.

Hossa snapped a 2-2 tie 7:28 into the third period when he took a drop pass from Belanger and fired a quick slap shot through a crowd and past Boston goalie Tim Thomas.

Zhitnik and forward Keith Tkachuk made their Atlanta debuts after being acquired in separate trades this weekend.
