Semin Helps Hurricanes Edge Panthers 3-2

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Alexander Semin scored two goals in the third period to lift the Carolina Hurricanes to a 3-2 victory over the Florida Panthers on Saturday night.

The teams were tied at one until Semin took control of a faceoff win by Eric Staal and shot past Tim Thomas at 2:31 of the third. He then scored Carolina's league-leading ninth short-handed goal on a breakaway at 8:57, also on an assist from Staal.

The Hurricanes ended a two-game skid and improved to 6-2 in their last eight.

The Panthers got a goal from Dmitry Kulikov with 5:39 remaining but Anton Khudobin held on from there, finishing with 37 saves in the win.
