PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 22 (UPI) -- Jiri Tlusty put Carolina in front with 6:10 to play Wednesday and the Hurricanes went on to edge Philadelphia 3-2.

This game was originally scheduled for Tuesday, but foul weather forced a 24-hour postponement.

Alexander Semin scored in the first period and Nathan Gerbe tallied in the second to put the Hurricanes in front. Philadelphia came back thanks to a backhander from Claude Giroux with 35 seconds to go in the middle period and a power-play goal from Scott Hartnell early in the third.

The win went to Anton Khudobin, who made 21 saves. Steve Mason stopped 29-of-32 shots for the Flyers, who lost their second in a row.
