Gerbe second goal with 38 seconds to go lifts Hurricanes to 2-1 win over Blue Jackets

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Nathan Gerbe scored his second goal of the game with 38 seconds remaining to lift the Carolina Hurricanes to a 2-1 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets in a preseason game Thursday night.

Nikita Nikitin scored on a one-timer from the left dot in the first period for Columbus, which wrapped up its preseason schedule. Sergei Bobrovsky made 21 saves.

Gerbe pulled the Hurricanes even at 18:04 of the second period, bursting from the corner and squeezing the puck past Bobrovsky. Gerbe topped that deke on the winning goal, going forehand to backhand and scoring easily.

Cam Ward made 25 stops for Carolina, which plays its last preseason game Friday against visiting Buffalo.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
