BRIND'AMOUR, GELINAS EXTEND POINTS STREAKS TO EIGHT IN 3-1 WIN

by Staff Writer / Carolina Hurricanes

ATLANTA (FEB. 1, 2001) – The Carolina Hurricanes earned their second win of the season over the Atlanta Thrashers, 3-1 at Philips Arena. Rod Brind'Amour, Kevin Hatcher and Martin Gelinas scored goals for the Hurricanes.

Brind'Amour and Gelinas broke the season-high points streak with their performances. Both players have registered a point in each of the Hurricanes last eight games dating back to Jan. 18 -- Brind'Amour with two goals and 10 assists and Gelinas, four goals and six assists in the span.

Kevin Hatcher scored his second goal for Carolina, on the power play, in the third period off a Jeff O'Neill pass. The goal is Hatcher's first point since returning to the Hurricanes' lineup on Jan. 31 after missing eight games with a knee injury.

Carolina begins the All-Star break having gone 10-4-2 in its last 16 games. The Hurricanes resume play on Feb. 7 at Phoenix.

"We set a goal to win our last three games," said Carolina coach Paul Maurice. "We fell short last night (a 4-3 loss to Toronto on Jan. 31). We came out a little sluggish tonight. Our defense played a little sluggish to start but they picked it up as the game went on. Brind'Amour's line really got us going tonight."

Hurricanes goaltender Arturs Irbe started his 39th consecutive game for Carolina and stopped 20 shots. Atlanta's only goal came at 11:34 of the third period when Donald Audette scored on a breakaway.
