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 have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.
