The Carolina Hurricanes kept on winning, this time at the expense of the skidding New Jersey Devils, who still can't get on track without Martin Brodeur. Jiri Tlusty had two goals, and the surging Hurricanes built an early lead and carried it through to a 6-3 victory over the Devils on Saturday night. New Jersey, which was in rally mode almost all night, got two goals from Ilya Kovalchuk, including a short-handed tally, and one from Patrik Elias but that wasn't enough to avoid their seventh loss in eight games without top goalie Brodeur. ''We've got to get wins. I'm not going to kid you and tell you I'm not worried,'' Devils coach Peter DeBoer said. ''It concerns me that we're not scoring. You look at the shots and the chances, and there's not a huge discrepancy from three weeks ago when we were winning games. ''It's finding that fine line that we seemed to have lost.'' Alexander Semin and Jay Harrison scor...

Tim Brent's value to the Hurricanes

Most of the Hurricanes injured players have returned but one player who has been on the shelf longer than intended is center Tim Brent.

Game 23 Inside the Numbers: Canadiens at Hurricanes

On the stat sheet, last night's 4-2 loss to the Montreal Canadiens looks like a game that the Hurricanes could/should have won but ended up losing thanks to running into a hot goaltender. They put up 43 shots against Carey Price but came away with only two goals while Montreal had only 28 shots and were outchanced 21-15. It's true that the Hurricanes had a huge advantage...
