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

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
