Skinner, Brent Lead Canes To 2-1 Win Over Jets

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Jeff Skinner and Tim Brent scored first-period goals for the Carolina Hurricanes, who held off the Winnipeg Jets 2-1 on Monday night.

Carolina won its third straight at home heading into the NHL All-Star break.

Kyle Wellwood scored at 13:47 of the second period for the Jets' only goal.

Since giving up four power-play goals in five chances at Nashville on Jan. 7, Carolina has gone eight games without allowing one. The Hurricanes allowed two power-play chances to Winnipeg and killed both to run their string to 15 straight penalty kills.
