Carolina Hurricanes were shocked by the way the Atlanta Thrashers played on their home ice like it was Thiers. Thrashers got the Hurricanes 5-2 clean on Sunday, which gave them second win in two tries against the Carolinas. All this was made possible by Ilya Kovalchuk who made two goals and two assists, Marian Hossa who scored the go ahead goal that lead to the win. Marc Savard and J.P Vigier had goals for the Thrashers too and also rookie Michael Garnett made 27 saves which resulted to him getting his third win.

After starting real fast the Hurricanes are doing very okay for a team that came 11 points behind the Southeast Division-leading.

This team is a inspiration.

Carolina's franchise record was ended by the Atlanta, with a 9-0 victory and nine game winning, that was two weeks ago. This was the first home loss for the Hurricanes. Kovalchuk managed to make a pair of goal. He was assisted by 23-year old Garnett who came in allowing 4.73 goals per game. In Atlanta 7-4 win against Florida on Saturday and not stopping there he went on with a brilliant performance against Carolina.

Bob Hartley the coach for Atlanta said "that he looked like an NHL goalie. His confidence was boosted and he was a good worker and a good kid, he was very comfortable, he's paid his dues in the organization and so the time had come for him to collect the reward."

Rookie Andrew Ladd and Aaron Ward scored for the Hurricanes, who had already lost four of five heading into a six-game road trip that will start on Tuesday in Atlanta.
