NHL: Carolina 3, Florida 2

Jan. 18, 2014 at 10:38 PM   |   Comments

RALEIGH, N.C., Jan. 18 (UPI) -- Alexander Semin recorded a go-ahead goal and then what turned out to be the game-winner in the third period Saturday, boosting Carolina over Florida 3-2.

Semin's first goal 2:31 into the final period broke a 1-1 tie, and he struck again with a short-handed score 6 1/2 minutes later for a 3-1 Carolina advantage.

The Hurricanes would need the extra goal when Dmitri Kulikov scored for the Panthers with 5:39 remaining, but Florida would get no closer as Carolina snapped a two-game skid.

Riley Nash also scored and Anton Khudobin made 37 stops.

Marcel Goc got the other goal for Florida, which dropped a second game in two nights.

Tim Thomas turned aside 33-of-36 shots.
