Svechnikov's overtime winner lifts Hurricanes over Wild

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Andrei Svechnikov closed his eyes, unloaded a wobbly shot and transformed himself into the latest star for the Carolina Hurricanes.

Svechnikov's goal 1:33 into overtime lifted the Hurricanes to a 4-3 overtime victory Saturday over the Minnesota Wild, the second straight game Carolina won in the extra session after downing Buffalo 5-4 on Thursday.

He converted a nifty give-and-go with defenseman Dougie Hamilton, firing a wrist shot from the right faceoff circle that fluttered over goaltender Devan Dubnyk's stick to extend the Hurricanes' win streak to three games after snapping a four-game losing streak.
