Anton Khudobin makes 46 saves in Hurricanes' 3-1 win over Blue Jackets

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Anton Khudobin made 46 saves and Andrei Loktionov and Patrick Dwyer each had a goal and an assist and the Carolina Hurricanes earned a 3-1 victory on Tuesday night.

Nathan Gerbe also scored, and Jay Harrison added two assists for the Hurricanes, who were criticized by coach Kirk Muller after weekend losses to Boston and Edmonton.

Carolina was close to a wild-card spot on Feb. 7, but the team has struggled since then.

They entered the game having lost nine of 12 and are likely going to miss the post-season for the fifth straight season.

Boone Jenner scored for Columbus, which outshot the Hurricanes 19-0 in the third period.

Quote of the Day

My job was to get that puck and put it on net, and his job was not letting me do it. I got the best of that, but that game's over and to be honest I already forgot about it.
