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 was going nuts and I saw [Subban], he was going crazy, and the ref had no idea where to go. [Subban] was skating to me, and I was skating to him and the ref was right in between us and I don't know, I kind of hit him pretty hard, I thought, but those were some emotions and I'm pretty sure he understands that.
