Wings defeat Thrashers in Traverse City opener
TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. -- The Thrashers opened the 2009 Traverse City Prospect Evaluation Tournament tonight, falling 6-4 to the host Red Wings. 

Detroit got on the board first when Tomas Tatar scored the only goal of the first period to give the Red Wings an early 1-0 advantage. 

Atlanta would then score three second-period goals to take a 3-1 lead into the second intermission.  Andrew Kozek opened the scoring for the Thrashers, tying the contest 1-1, at the 4:13 mark of the middle frame with an unassisted power play tally.  Evander Kane, the Thrashers first-round (fourth overall) draft choice in last June’s NHL Entry Draft, gave Atlanta a 2-1 advantage with three minutes remaining in the second period and Drew Paris scored the Thrashers third goal of the game just two-and-a-half minutes later.

The Thrashers extended their lead to 4-1 thanks a Darryl Smith power play tally 1:43 into the third period.  Kozek picked up his second point of the evening with an assist on Atlanta’s fourth goal.  From there, Detroit would score five unanswered goals, including an empty-netter with less than 10 seconds to play in regulation to earn the 6-4 victory.

Chris Carrozzi, a sixth-round draft choice in 2008, was given the nod in goal for Atlanta and made 23 saves on 28 shots.  Thomas McCollum turned aside 24-of-28 shots for the Red Wings.
