NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- Jiri Tlusty scored the two goals in the third period and Cam Ward made 26 saves as the Carolina Hurricanes beat New Jersey 4-2 on Tuesday night, snapping the Devils' five-game winning streak.

Jussi Jokinen and Patrick Dwyer also scored for Carolina, which went 4-1-1 to conclude a six-game road trip.
