Stempniak, Nordstrom lead Hurricanes past Red Wings, 4-1

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) Just three weeks ago the Carolina Hurricanes were fighting to stay out of last place in the Metropolitan Division. Now, a furious run has them on the brink of a playoff spot.

Lee Stempniak and Joakim Nordstrom scored about five minutes apart in the first period, and the Hurricanes beat the Detroit Red Wings 4-1 Tuesday night in the teams' second meeting in two nights.

Jordan Staal and Elias Lindholm also scored for Carolina and Cam Ward stopped 21 shots. The Hurricanes have earned a point in 12 straight games (8-0-4) to move four points out of the Eastern Conference's second wild card.
