Sekera scores go-ahead goal in helping Hurricanes rally to 5-3 win over Sabres

BUFFALO, N.Y. - Alexander Semin had two goals and defenceman Andrej Sekera added a score at 9:50 of the third to lift the Carolina Hurricanes to a 5-3 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday night.

Jeff Skinner also scored for the Hurricanes, who overcame three one-goal deficits. Jiri Tlusty sealed the win by scoring into an empty net with one second remaining.

Sekera also added two assists in facing his former team for the first time since the Sabres traded him to Carolina on June 30.

Goalie Anton Khudobin stopped 26 shots to improve to 9-3 on the season.

Cody Hodgson, Tyler Ennis and Brian Flynn scored for Buffalo, which dropped to 0-3-2 in its past five games.

Quote of the Day

I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
