Canucks edge Hurricanes 3-2
VANCOUVER 3, CAROLINA 2

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Ryan Kesler shut off the Carolina
Hurricanes' onslaught after an early second-period surge and put
the Vancouver Canucks back in control.

They maintained it for much of the final 40 minutes and skated
off with a 3-2 road win on Sunday.

Kesler capped a frenetic 37-second stretch early in the second
period by scoring his second goal of the game that turned out to
be the winner.

The Hurricanes scored a pair of goals 10 seconds apart in the
first 49 seconds of the second to tie the game. Kesler put the
Canucks in front for good at 1:16.

"We wanted to gain the momentum back, and there's no better way
than scoring a goal," Kesler said. "I'm happy that we got one
there."

Tom Sestito also scored for the Canucks, and Jason Garrison had
two assists. Backup goalie Eddie Lack made 29 saves in place of
Roberto Luongo to help Vancouver earn just its third win in 11
games.

Kesler's goal, scored 27 seconds after Carolina tied it, was set
up after the Canucks won a number of scrums behind the net.

Chris Higgins eventually emerged with the puck, and he shoveled
it into the crease. Jannik Hansen deflected it to Kesler, who
knocked it just across the goal line.

It was only the third time in 11 games that Vancouver scored at
least three goals.

Jordan Staal and Nathan Gerbe had goals for Carolina. Cam Ward
made 27 saves.

The Hurricanes, who failed to score on six power plays against
the NHL's best penalty-killing unit, have lost six of eight.

"When you get a chance, the guys who are out there have to
execute," Carolina coach Kirk Muller said. "If they can't
execute, I guess we've got to start looking for other guys in
our lineup and give them the opportunity.

"Everyone runs the same plays. It's a matter of getting the job
done, and do it at a higher tempo. . I don't know - maybe some
of our guys can't make the plays."

One day after giving up two power-play goals in a 5-2 loss to
the Rangers in New York, Vancouver was pleased with its penalty
killers.

During one stretch Sunday, Carolina had 5:33 of consecutive time
on the power play, including 27 seconds of a two-man advantage.

"It was God awful yesterday afternoon, and really one of the few
times it has been this year," Vancouver coach John Tortorella
said. "But tonight it was outstanding."

Vancouver rebounded and controlled much of the early play
against the Hurricanes. The Canucks scored twice in the first
period to build a 2-0 lead.

The first goal came after Carolina's Drayson Bowman (boarding)
and Mike Komisarek (delay of game) took penalties.

Just 11 seconds after Vancouver went on a two-man advantage,
Kesler converted on a rebound to Ward's right at 3:24.

With 4:12 left in the first, Garrison took a shot that Sestito
deflected in off the post.

Staal started the Hurricanes' second-period comeback when he
skated into the Vancouver zone and sent a wrist shot that hit
Lack in the mask.

Several Vancouver and Carolina players converged on the crease,
and Staal followed up his rebound and poked the puck into the
net at 39 seconds.

After the Hurricanes won the ensuing faceoff, Justin Faulk
connected with Eric Staal with a nice stretch pass. Lack stopped
Staal's one-handed backhand attempt, but Gerbe gathered the
rebound and slapped the puck under Lack as the goalie fell into
the net.

It was the first time the Carolina franchise scored two goals in
the first minute of a period since Nov. 1, 1987 when they were
the Hartford Whalers.

Lack relieved Luongo 17 seconds into the second period on
Saturday, after Luongo allowed three Rangers goals on only 10
shots, and stopped 12 of 14 New York attempts.

NOTES: Hansen left the game in the first period with an apparent
right shoulder injury, but he returned in the second period. ...
It was the first time Vancouver's Alex Edler and Carolina's Eric
Staal played against each other since Edler hurt Staal in the
world championships last summer with a knee-on-knee hit. ...
Carolina defenseman Andrej Sekera missed the game because of an
upper body injury.
