NHL.com @NHL

RALEIGH, N.C. - Ethan Moreau scored two goals in the final 88 seconds to give Edmonton a 3-1 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes and snap the Oilers' five-game losing streak.

Moreau scored unassisted off the body of goalie Cam Ward to break a 1-all tie on Saturday and then added an empty-netter. Dwayne Roloson made 33 saves for the Oilers.

Carolina thought it had tied the score with 43.1 seconds left when Eric Staal poked his own rebound toward the net. But replays showed Roloson covered the puck before it crossed the goal line.

Ray Whitney scored for Carolina 6:35 into the first period and Ward stopped 29 shots.
