Eric Staal, Jeff Hamilton, Cory Stillman and Bret Hedican scored third-period goals to help the Carolina Hurricanes end a streak of futility against the visiting Buffalo Sabres with a 6-2 win last night. It was Carolina's first victory over the Sabres since Game 7 of the 2006 Eastern Conference finals; Buffalo won all four games against the Hurricanes last season. Rod Brind'Amour and Ray Whitney added goals for Carolina, which has earned points in all but one of its 10 games so far. Buffalo has lost all three of its road games; Jason Pominville scored twice for the Sabres.

The NHL has fined Chicago Blackhawks coach Joel Quenne-ville $10,000 for harsh criticism of officiating in his team's loss to Detroit in Game 4 of the Western Conference final on Sunday. Quenneville fumed over a roughing call against Matt Walker during a scrum as the first period ended. The Red Wings scored on the ensuing power play 1 minute, 13 seconds into the second period extending their lead to 3-0, and went on to win, 6-1, and take a 3-1 edge in the series. "I think we witnessed probably the worst call in the history of sports there," Quenneville said after the game.

The Stanley Cup champion Carolina Hurricanes signed Justin Williams to a long-term deal yesterday. The Hurricanes reached agreement with Williams - a key contributor during the run to the title - on a 5-year, $17.5 million contract, keeping the 30-goal scorer among the franchise's core young players. They also announced deals with defensemen Niclas Wallin and Andrew Hutchinson and right wing Craig Adams. The Hurricanes hope to reach a deal with second-year star Eric Staal over the weekend when the free-agent signing period begins.

Erik Cole and Eric Staal each had two goals to help the Carolina Hurricanes tie a franchise record for home victories by beating the Florida Panthers, 5-2, last night. Craig Adams also scored for the Hurricanes, who improved to an NHL-best 26-5-1 at home. That equaled the previous mark set 19 years ago when the team played in Hartford, but they'll have to wait nearly 2 weeks to break it. "It's not something we're focused on or talking about here in the room," left wing Erik Cole said.

Ray Whitney scored on a tip-in with one-half second left in the third period last night, lifting the Carolina Hurricanes past the host Atlanta Thrashers, 4-3, the defending Stanley Cup champion's first win of the season. Cam Ward stopped 31 shots for the Hurricanes, who were off to an 0-3-1 start. An overtime period seemed inevitable until Whitney's first goal of the season in the final second. Whitney tipped in a shot by Eric Staal. The last-second shot capped a frustrating night for Atlanta goaltender Kari Lehtonen, who gave up three first-period goals and then shut out the Hurricanes until Whitney's game-winner.

This win seemed like the ones the Carolina Hurricanes enjoyed during their run to the Stanley Cup title two seasons ago. After missing the playoffs the year after winning the Cup, the Hurricanes have their sights set on a more successful season. Matt Cullen scored for the first time since returning to the Hurricanes, and six others added goals in Carolina's 7-1 rout of the Maple Leafs last night in Toronto. Cullen, traded back to Carolina during the summer after one season with the New York Rangers, scored a power-play goal that gave the Hurricanes a 3-1 lead in the second period.

It was Staal's first goal in his second attempt in the NHL's new tiebreaker, and the Hurricanes improved to 6-1 when the game goes beyond overtime. Niclas Wallin, Erik Cole and Justin Williams scored in regulation for Carolina, which snapped its first two-game losing streak since late December.

Now it's Canada vs. Russia in the Olympic hockey game that everyone expected. Jarome Iginla scored two goals as a revived Canadian hockey team beat Germany, 8-2, setting up a superpower showdown against Russia in the quarterfinals today - or 4 days sooner than predicted for a game that seems better suited for the finals. Shea Weber had a goal that left scorch marks in the net, leading to a three-goal second period in a qualification game that Canada didn't expect to be playing.

VANCOUVER - If it happens, given the conditions that have plagued these Olympics, it might go down as the Miracle on Slush. If youthful, fresh-legged Team USA can outskate big, strong Team Canada for a victory here on Sunday, it might not rank with the 1980 gold medal-winning team's defeat of the Soviets. But it would rankle the host nation very, very much - especially after the Canadian dream team blew a two-goal lead to Switzerland last night and needed a shoot-out to eke out a win. Earlier yesterday, you could sense the looming showdown in the atmosphere at Canada Hockey Place.

Philippe Boucher and Miroslav Satan were missing when the Pittsburgh Penguins made the late-season surge that carried them from 10th place in the Eastern Conference to a third consecutive trip to the playoffs. In the opener of the conference finals, Boucher and Satan proved as important to beating the Carolina Hurricanes as Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby did. Satan and Boucher scored their first goals of the playoffs and goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury prevented visiting Carolina from getting its offense going, leading the Penguins to a 3-2 victory over the Hurricanes last night.

Eric Staal, Ryan Bayda and Chad LaRose also scored for the Hurricanes, who blew a 3-0 lead but regrouped just in time to avoid a third straight overtime game in the series. Jokinen started the dramatic sequence when he tried to stuff a backhander past Martin Brodeur with about 7 seconds remaining.

Cam Ward tried to scout the New York Islanders the night before he faced the NHL's worst team, but couldn't find their game on TV in his hotel room. It didn't matter. The Carolina Hurricanes goalie got plenty of offensive support and cruised to a 6-2 win last night in Uniondale, N.Y. "Usually playing against a team like this is very dangerous because obviously they have nothing to lose and we have a lot to gain," said Ward, who made 22 saves. Eric Staal scored two goals, including one in Carolina's big first period, and the Hurricanes gained ground in the Eastern Conference playoff race.
