Hurricanes 3, Ducks 2 (SO)

The SportsXchange

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Recent call-up Chris Terry scored the deciding shootout goal and Justin Peters remained hot in net for Carolina as the Hurricanes capped off a successful stint at PNC Arena with a 3-2 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Friday night.

Carolina rebounded from a five-game losing streak to go 4-0-1, defeating two of the NHL's best teams -- Colorado and Anaheim -- to close out a season-long five-game homestand.

After starting 0-5 replacing injured starter Cam Ward, Peters has allowed just six goals in his last five games in net, stopping 138 of 144 shots. And he rebounded in the shootout after allowing three goals against the Minnesota Wild two games ago, stopping right wing Teemu Selanne and center Ryan Getzlaf before Terry notched his first game winner in seven career NHL games with a backhander past goalie Viktor Fasth.

Meanwhile, the Ducks, with the most points (31) in the league, dropped their third straight and close out a four-game road trip at Metropolitan Division-leading Pittsburgh on Monday.

Tied 1-1 heading into the third period, left wing Drayson Bowman scored 3:01 in for the Hurricanes before left wing Dustin Penner tied the score four minutes later with just Anaheim's third road power-play goal of the season in 46 attempts.

The opening portions of this one produced some ragged offense with a group of Ducks battling the flu and the Hurricanes, the third-lowest scoring team in the league, managing just four shots on goal in the opening 29 minutes.

However, each team scored in the final two minutes of the second period, with right wing Corey Perry notching his team-leading 12th of the season after Getzlaf intercepted an errant clearing pass from Carolina defenseman Justin Faulk.

The Canes then went on the power play over the final minute of the period and right wing Alexander Semin broke out of his eight-game slump, rifling a wrist shot past Fasth with left wing Tuomo Ruutu in front as a screen for his fourth goal. It was Carolina's first man-advantage goal in five games.

NOTES: Carolina came into the game as the only team without a double-digit scorer. ... LW Jeff Skinner has missed 33 of 125 games since winning Rookie of the Year honors for the Hurricanes in 2010-11. ... Carolina D Mike Komisarek was in the lineup after seven straight games as a healthy scratch. He played right wing on the fourth line instead of along the blue line. ... The Hurricanes have just seven first-period goals this season -- second lowest in the league. ... Ducks C Ryan Getzlaf returned to the lineup after missing three games with an upper-body injury. ... Carolina captain Eric Staal played in his 709th game, moving into sole possession of third place in franchise history in games played. He trails only Glen Wesley (913) and Ron Francis (1,186). ... G Victor Fasth was in net for Anaheim for the first time since Oct. 16.
