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.

It is really special. I had a lot of friends and family here tonight, and for my first [NHL] game in here it was great. I played here as an elementary-school player in the city championships and this was my first time back. It was a lot of fun..
