WINNIPEG — The Carolina Hurricanes traveled a long way, with little rest, to play their first regular-season game against the Winnipeg Jets. They’d rather forget it.
The Jets, the newcomers in the Southeast Division, rallied from an early deficit to stop the Canes 5-3 at MTS Centre.
The Canes, at the end of a six-day, three-game road trip, jumped to a 2-0 lead in the first period but ran out of energy. That made for a long, tough night for goaltender Brian Boucher, who was making his second start of the season.
