RALEIGH, N.C. - Jussi Jokinen scored twice and added an assist, and Riley Nash netted his first goal as part of a three-point night in the Carolina Hurricanes' 6-2 win over the Florida Panthers on Saturday.

Eric Staal also had two goals for the Hurricanes, Jiri Tlutsy scored his 10th in 11 games, and Alexander Semin had three assists.

Filip Kuba and Shawn Matthias scored for the Panthers, who have only two wins in 11 games.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
