RALEIGH, N.C. - Justin Faulk had a goal and an assist, and the Eastern Conference-worst Carolina Hurricanes broke a six-game losing streak with a 4-1 win over the previously surging Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday night.

The Hurricanes (9-19-3), who entered with the NHL's worst record, had scored only one goal in each game of their skid. Their offensive outburst snapped the Maple Leafs' six-game winning streak.

Chris Terry, Andrej Sekera, and Elias Lindholm also scored for Carolina. Nathan Gerbe and Eric Staal both had two assists. The Hurricanes are 19-7-1 against the Maple Leafs in the last 27 meetings.

Dion Phaneuf scored for Toronto.

The Hurricanes played a few hours after trading defenceman Jay Harrison to Winnipeg for a 2015 sixth-round draft pick.

Cam Ward had 25 saves for Carolina. Toronto's Jonathan Bernier stopped 33 shots.
