BOSTON (Ticker) -- Before beginning their longest road trip of the season, the Boston Bruins try to extend their winning streak to four games when they host the Atlanta Thrashers at the FleetCenter on Tuesday.

The Bruins are playing their final home game before a seven-game road trip that will bridge the All-Star break and span 16 days. They will not play at the FleetCenter again until February 23.

Boston has won 10 of its last 14 games overall after rolling to a 4-1 victory over the lowly Pittsburgh Penguins here on Sunday.

Glen Murray recorded his fifth career hat trick, giving him nine goals in his last eight games, as the Bruins extended their unbeaten streak to four games (3-0-1).

Brian Rolston added an empty-netter and Andrew Raycroft stopped 38 shots for Boston, which has allowed just two goals in its last three games.

The Bruins have lost just two of their last 10 home games (7-2-1) and are 11-8-7-1 at the FleetCenter.

Atlanta began a stretch in which it plays nine of 10 games on the road with a 5-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday.

Defenseman Daniel Tjarnqvist recorded a pair of assists for the struggling Thrashers, who are winless in their last six games (0-4-2) and have just two wins in their last 16 (2-10-3-1).

Atlanta has just one win its last nine road games (1-6-1-1) and is 8-13-2-2 away from home this season.

The Bruins have split two road games against the Thrashers this season, losing in overtime on November 19. Atlanta lost both its visits to the FleetCenter last season.
