Dvorak has winner in 'Canes 2-1 win over Flyers
CAROLINA 2, PHILADELPHIA 1

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- After squandering a third-period lead in a
season-opening loss to Detroit, the Carolina Hurricanes were
happy to be in a similar position against the Philadelphia
Flyers on Sunday.

This time, they got the result they wanted.

Radek Dvorak scored the winner in the second period to lift the
Carolina Hurricanes to their first win of the season, a 2-1
victory over the Flyers.

Jay Harrison also scored, Jeff Skinner added two assists and
Anton Khudobin made 17 saves in his Hurricanes' debut.

"It definitely had the very same feel as the last game,"
Carolina's Jordan Staal said. "It was nice to get a different
result with the tough ending to last time. It was nice to have a
solid third period and do all the right things to get the win."

Luke Schenn had the goal for the Flyers, who have opened the
season 0-3-0 for the second year in a row. Before last year,
Philadelphia had lost its first three games only one other time
in franchise history.

Steve Mason made 32 saves for the Flyers.

Philadelphia has scored only three goals in its three losses.

"I don't know if anything's missing - we're just having a tough
time scoring goals," Schenn said. "No one's got that confidence
or that swagger right now to score some goals. When you put the
puck in the net, it makes everyone feel good around you. For
whatever reason, we've had a hard time doing that."

The Hurricanes dominated large stretches of the opening period,
taking advantage of a Philadelphia team that lost 4-1 at
Montreal on Saturday night before traveling to Raleigh. For the
period, Carolina outshot the Flyers 17-5.

Harrison opened the scoring with one of the Hurricanes' more
benign opportunities, sneaking the puck through Mason's legs on
a wrist shot from inside the blue line.

Philadelphia got that goal back 3:01 into the second period when
Schenn skated around Carolina's Drayson Bowman and snapped the
puck above Khudobin's left shoulder.

It was the Flyers' first even-strength goal of the season.

"I would think that the guys are probably pretty frustrated,"
Philadelphia coach Peter Laviolette said. "There's not a lot of
room out there. The first game, we had a lot of attempts; the
second game, not a lot of attempts. We're in there, we're
looking, but we're not coming up with anything."

Dvorak gave the Hurricanes the lead for good when he scored a
little more than 5 minutes later.

After Skinner deflected Schenn's clearing attempt, Dvorak
collected the loose puck in the high slot. With Carolina's Riley
Nash providing a screen, Dvorak's wrist shot beat Mason on the
glove side.

"When the forecheck's going well, everything falls into place,"
Skinner said. "I think the forecheck was going well."

Dvorak, who signed a free agent contract with the Hurricanes on
Oct. 2 after coming to training camp on a tryout basis, also
scored in the Hurricanes' season-opening loss to Detroit on
Friday. The 18-year veteran had four goals in nine games for
Anaheim last season.

"Given the opportunity, he can score," Carolina coach Kirk
Muller said. "He's got great skill. He's obviously been a great
addition over the first two games that we've added to our group
of young forwards."

The final period was a tight-checking affair with neither team
having many opportunities - Philadelphia managed only three
shots.

NOTES: Elias Lindholm, Carolina's first-round draft pick, went
to the Hurricanes' dressing room in the third period with an
apparent injury to his right arm. He did not return to the game,
although he was on the bench at the end of the game. ...
Philadelphia's Vincent Lecavalier came into the game having
recorded 27 points in his last 27 games against the Hurricanes.
. Mason had been undefeated in five career outings against
Carolina.
