Anaheim, CA (Sports Network) - Nigel Dawes scored the only goal of the shootout in the fourth round, and Anthony Stewart's first career hat trick helped the Thrashers recover from a late two-goal deficit and stun the Anaheim Ducks, 5-4, at Honda Center.
Dawes skated in quickly before firing a simple wrister from the slot, beating Anaheim goaltender Jonas Hiller cleanly for the win.
Stewart came into the game with four career goals -- no more than two in any season -- before exploding for three, including the Thrashers' third and fourth to forge a tie with minutes remaining in the game. Chris Thorburn also scored for Atlanta, which snapped a two-game skid.
Chris Mason stopped 37-of-41 shots in the victory.
Teemu Selanne and Corey Perry each had a goal and two assists for the Ducks, who have lost four of five to open the season. Ryan Getzlaf added a goal and an assist, and Hiller made 29 stops in defeat.
