For the Carolina Hurricanes, the losing streak is over -- two of them, in fact.
The Canes took a 4-2 victory Saturday over the Boston Bruins at PNC Arena, snapping a seven-game losing skid and ending the eight consecutive home losses that set a franchise record.
Jiri Tlusty scored a pair of goals, including an empty netter in the final minutes, and Joe Corvo and Jeff Skinner both had power-play scores for the Canes. Justin Peters allowed an early score to Milan Lucic but battled his way to a 28-save game, making arguably the best save of his NHL career by robbing Jaromir Jagr with a glove save in the second.
"I'm happy for the guys," Canes coach Kirk Muller said. "They've been playing like that for a while. They stuck with it and played an intense, energized game against a good hockey club. They played the game the right way and finally got some reward from it."
