Jhonas Enroth recorded his first shutout of the season by making 34 stops to lead the Buffalo Sabres to a 1-0 win over the reeling Carolina Hurricanes in Raleigh, N.C., on Friday.
Jason Pominville had the game's lone goal.
Enroth is filling in for Ryan Miller as the Sabres' top goaltender recovers from a concussion suffered Nov. 12 against Boston. It was the second career shutout for the Sabres' second-round draft pick in 2006.
Carolina has lost seven of its last eight games, prompting speculation about the job security of coach Paul Maurice.
