Skinner Gets 3; Hurricanes Top Capitals 4-3 In OT

WASHINGTON (AP) - Jeff Skinner scored three goals, including the winner in overtime, and Anton Khudobin made 38 saves in his first start in 2½ months Thursday night in the Carolina Hurricanes' 4-3 win over the Washington Capitals.

Skinner took a pass from Ryan Murphy to cap a 3-on-1 break at 1:20 of the extra period for his 19th goal of the season. Manny Malhotra also scored for the Hurricanes, who have won two in a row after a five-game losing streak.

With Cam Ward out with a lower body injury, Khudobin saw his first NHL action since Oct. 13. Khudobin had been out with a lower body injury and was recalled Tuesday after a two-game conditioning assignment in the AHL.
