Hurricanes end 7-game skid with 4-2 victory over the Bruins

RALEIGH, N.C. - Jiri Tlusty scored two goals and the Carolina Hurricanes ended a seven-game losing streak with a 4-2 victory over the Boston Bruins on Saturday.

Joe Corvo's power-play goal at 9:36 of the third period broke a 2-2 tie.

The win was Carolina's first in the month of April and the Hurricanes also ended an eight-game losing streak at home.

Jeff Skinner added a first-period power-play goal, the first time this season Boston had allowed two power-play goals in a game.

Carolina goalie Justin Peters stopped 28 shots while Boston's Tuukka Rask had 34 saves.

Tyler Seguin and Milan Lucic scored for the Bruins.

Quote of the Day

It's not just going to happen on its own. We have to have guys commit to the areas we need to improve on. We're going to be better than last year but there is still a long way to go. But I really like the pieces and where we're headed.
