Chris Thorburn scores tiebreaking goal with 1:03 left to lift Jets to 2-1 win over Hurricanes

RALEIGH, N.C. - Chris Thorburn scored the tiebreaking goal with 1:03 remaining to lift the Winnipeg Jets to a 2-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday night.

Andrew Ladd also scored for the Jets, who are 9-2-0 since Paul Maurice took over as coach on Jan. 12. Maurice coached 920 games for the Hurricanes franchise during two stints with the team.

Ondrej Pavelec made 28 saves for the Jets.

Winnipeg took the lead when Jacob Trouba circled around the net and sent the puck across the crease to Thorburn, who knocked it past goalie Anton Khudobin.

Riley Nash scored for Carolina and Khudobin made 25 saves.

The Hurricanes went 10-4-0 in January and had won five of six, but their offence sputtered in this tight-checking game.

Quote of the Day

The fans love it, and it looked like they were having fun. It was great to see this city [Columbus]. They had been waiting a couple years for this game. They did it right.
