Ivanans in, Purcell out

Raitis Ivanans will be back in the lineup tonight, in place of Teddy Purcell. Murray said he felt Ivanans’ play fit the Thrashers better and that Purcell hadn’t been in the power-play rotation. Randy Jones stays in the lineup in place of Sean O’Donnell.

Ondrej Pavelec is expected to start in goal for Atlanta.
