Recap: Ottawa vs. Carolina

Ottawa, ON (SportsNetwork.com) - Nathan Gerbe scored the winning goal with 5:41 remaining to give the Carolina Hurricanes a 3-2 win over the Ottawa Senators.

Justin Faulk had a goal and an assist and Brad Malone also scored for the Hurricanes, who have won two of their last three. Anton Khudobin stopped 30 shots in the win.

"It was a good effort," said Carolina head coach Bill Peters. "Everyone played good, valuable minutes and we found a way."

Cody Ceci and Mark Stone scored for the Senators, who have lost two of three. Craig Anderson stopped 25 shots in the loss.

"I thought we didn't have a great start, but we were able to hang in there," said Ottawa head coach Dave Cameron. "As the game went on, we got better, but they did a good job of clogging things up and slowing the game down."

Late in the game with the score tied, Gerbe gave the Hurricanes the lead as his wrister from the slot found the back of the net after a long sequence in the Ottawa end.

Ottawa pulled Anderson with over a minute to play, but was unable to net the equalizer.

Carolina took a 1-0 lead into the first intermission as Patrick Dwyer used a quick chip out front to get the puck to Malone, who tapped it in with just 32 seconds showing on the clock.

Ottawa tied the game with the only goal of the second period on a rush play that saw Erik Condra's heavy wrister from the left wing fought off by Khudobin, but the rebound came out to the right circle and Ceci buried it at 4:19.

The Senators took a 2-1 lead one minute into the third as Stone stickhandled past a defender before going with a hard wrister past the glove of Khudobin.

Carolina, though, answered just 1:21 later as Faulk's slap shot from the right point hit a body in front and trickled behind Anderson for his eighth goal of the season.
