Carolina manages rare win thanks to uninspired Bruins performance

The Bruins couldn’€™t take advantage of a reeling Carolina team, with the Hurricanes winning at home for the first time in the last nine tries, beating the B’€™s, 4-2, Saturday night.

The Hurricanes came in with a seven-game losing streak, having been trounced the Bruins, 6-2, earlier in the week. This time, however, Carolina took advantage of two power-play goals, the last one ‘€“ by Joe Corvo 9:36 into the final period ‘€“ proved to be the difference.

The Hurricanes had been just 1-13-1 over their last 15 games.

The Bruins entered the game a league-best 17-2-1 when scoring first, which was the case this time around thanks to Milan Lucic [1]‘€™s goal 6:07 into the first period.

But Carolina would send the game tied heading into the first intermission thanks to Jeff Skinner’€™s power-play goal. The Hurricanes would out-shoot their visitors 17-4 in the first 20 minutes.

The B’€™s managed to out-shoot Carolina, 13-8, in the second period, but the Hurricanes still managed to take a 2-1 lead when Jiri Tlusty beat Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask [2].

Tyler Seguin [3] managed to knot the game up at 2-2 with 2:03 left in the second.

Tlusty added an insurance, empty-netter with :28 remaining.
