RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Jay Harrison scored the winning goal with 1:30 remaining for the Carolina Hurricanes, who rallied for a 4-2 victory over the Boston Bruins on Saturday night.

Justin Faulk, Eric Staal and Patrick Dwyer also scored, and Cam Ward made 33 saves for the Hurricanes, who have won all three meetings between these teams this season. Carolina, which didn’t have a power-play opportunity, is 5-1-1 in its last seven home games.

Harrison wristed a shot from the point that went through a maze of Boston and Carolina players, deflecting off Boston defenseman Johnny Boychuk before it skidded past Thomas.

Staal added an empty-net goal with 1:02 left.

Milan Lucic and Patrice Bergeron had the Bruins’ goals, and David Krejci extended his point streak to 12 games. Tim Thomas made 17 saves.

With the game tied 1-1 early in the third period, the puck made its way to Lucic near the right circle after a blocked shot. Lucic fired a snap shot past Ward’s blocker into the top left corner of the net.
Lucic has points in six of seven games.

Faulk tied it for Carolina with 6:02 remaining on a slap shot from the point that floated high and evaded Thomas’ left shoulder.

The Bruins entered the game one point behind the New York Rangers at the top of the Eastern Conference. Carolina started the day one point ahead of the New York Islanders at the bottom.

Despite a number of quality scoring opportunities for both teams — Thomas robbed Alexei Ponikarovsky with a left pad save late in the first period — the game was still scoreless early in the second period.

Boston struck first when Bergeron cleaned up Boychuk’s rebound in front. Bergeron has five goals and four assists in his last six games.

The Hurricanes responded when Brandon Sutter stole the puck near the Bruins blue line and slapped a shot at Thomas. Dwyer redirected the puck in front of the net for his first goal since Dec. 7.

NOTES: Carolina’s Jussi Jokinen played in his 500th NHL game. Ponikarovsky was in his 600th. . Jeff Skinner (concussion) sat out but is close to returning for the Hurricanes. . The Bruins were 16-2-0 when scoring first.
