Kozlov last missed a game during the 2006-07 season.
Tobias Enstrom now holds the team's active streak for consecutive games played with 215.
With Kozlov out, Todd White was back in the lineup after being scratched the past five games. White skated on a line Saturday with Rich Peverley and Max Afinogenov.
“Not so much hungry, but with a little edge, a little more motivation,” Anderson said of what he wanted to see from White. “We’ve talked about secondary scoring. That’s what I need to have from [players such as White]. If they are not doing it, then it’s not helping the hockey team.”
Mark Popovic was the Thrashers' other scratch.
