Harrison's late goal lifts Hurricanes over Bruins
CAROLINA 4, BOSTON 2

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- As well as the Carolina Hurricanes play
against the defending Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins, you
would never know they are stuck near the bottom of the Eastern
Conference standings.



Jay Harrison scored the winning goal with 1:30 remaining, and
the Hurricanes topped the Bruins 4-2 on Saturday night for their
third win over Boston this season.



"That should suggest to this whole locker room that we're not
far off," Harrison said.



Justin Faulk, Eric Staal and Patrick Dwyer also scored, and Cam
Ward made 33 saves for the Hurricanes. Carolina, which didn't
have a power-play opportunity, is 5-1-1 in its last seven home
games.



"I think we felt pretty good tonight, and feeling pretty good
going into the game," Faulk said. "I think we're just looking to
replicate that for a few more games."



Harrison wristed a shot from the point that went through a maze
of Boston and Carolina players and appeared to deflect off
Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk before it sailed past goalie
Tim Thomas.



"It was basically tips, skates and knuckle pucks," said Thomas,
summarizing Carolina's goals. "They did the right thing. You
throw it at the net with traffic and see what happens. Sometimes
you win games like that."



Staal added an empty-net goal with 1:02 left. Milan Lucic and
Patrice Bergeron had the Bruins' goals, and David Krejci
extended his point streak to 11 games, the longest in the NHL
this season. Thomas made 17 saves.



"We were sloppy, we didn't clean up in front of our net,"
defenseman Dennis Seidenberg said. "They had people and pucks in
front of there, and Timmy couldn't see it. We just have to do a
better job of cleaning guys and pucks out of there."



With the game tied 1-1 early in the third period, the puck made
its way to Lucic near the right circle after a blocked shot.
Lucic fired a snap shot past Ward's blocker into the top left
corner of the net.



Faulk tied it for Carolina with 6:02 remaining on a slap shot
from the point that floated high and evaded Thomas' left
shoulder. Hurricanes forward Jiri Tlusty almost tipped the puck
in front, but a video review determined he didn't touch the
puck.



The Bruins dropped three points behind the NHL-leading New York
Rangers at the top of the Eastern Conference. Carolina remained
one point ahead of Tampa Bay and the New York Islanders at the
bottom of the East.



Despite a number of quality scoring opportunities for both teams
- Thomas robbed Alexei Ponikarovsky with a left pad save late in
the first period - the game was still scoreless early in the
second period.



Boston struck first when Bergeron cleaned up Boychuk's rebound
in front. Bergeron has five goals and four assists in his last
six games.



The Hurricanes responded when Brandon Sutter stole the puck near
the Bruins blue line and slapped a shot at Thomas. Dwyer
redirected the puck in front of the net for his first goal since
Dec. 7.



"You have to bring your `A' game in order to beat them,"
Carolina coach Kirk Muller said. "I thought our guys played hard
and it was a good win for us."



NOTES: Carolina's Jussi Jokinen played in his 500th NHL game.
Ponikarovsky was in his 600th. ... Jeff Skinner (concussion) sat
out but is close to returning for the Hurricanes. ... The Bruins
were 16-2 when scoring first.
