RALEIGH, N.C. - Chris Thorburn scored the tiebreaking goal with 1:03 remaining to lift the Winnipeg Jets to a 2-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday night.

Andrew Ladd also scored for the Jets, who are 9-2-0 since Paul Maurice took over as coach on Jan. 12. Maurice coached 920 games for the Hurricanes franchise during two stints with the team.

Ondrej Pavelec made 28 saves for the Jets.

Winnipeg took the lead when Jacob Trouba circled around the net and sent the puck across the crease to Thorburn, who knocked it past goalie Anton Khudobin.

Riley Nash scored for Carolina and Khudobin made 25 saves.

The Hurricanes went 10-4-0 in January and had won five of six, but their offence sputtered in this tight-checking game.
