There was also a shadow cast over the start of the 2010 tournament in South Africa,

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- After a forgettable weekend, Anton Khudobin helped the Carolina Hurricanes get a much-needed victory on Tuesday night. Walt Weiss Jersey . Khudobin made a career-high 46 saves and Andrei Loktionov and Patrick Dwyer each had a goal and an assist to send Carolina past the Columbus Blue Jackets 3-1. Nathan Gerbe also scored, and Jay Harrison added two assists for the Hurricanes, who were criticized by coach Kirk Muller after weekend losses to Boston and Edmonton. "In the neutral zone we did a better job of getting speed and getting on the forecheck," Carolinas Jordan Staal said. Boone Jenner scored for Columbus, which outshot the Hurricanes 19-0 in the third period. Carolina jumped ahead at 3:41 on its first shot. Gerbe grabbed a loose puck that defenceman Fedor Tyutin couldnt handle and on an odd-man rush and scored his 15th of the season from the right circle. "When you score first its always important and gives you a little confidence," Khudobin said. "Im happy with the win. I would probably be more happy if I didnt get scored on with like a minute left. But we got the result, we won. Thats most important for me." The Hurricanes were close to a playoff spot on Feb. 7, but they entered the game having lost nine of 12 and are likely to miss the post-season again. The Blue Jackets are in a tight race in the Eastern Conference playoff race. They dropped a rare one at home where they are 10-3-1 in their past 14. "It seemed we had some pretty good quality chances," Columbus coach Todd Richards said. "We hit a couple posts (during the game). We had our opportunities. I think we were doing some things to create offence. We just werent able to finish." Sergei Bobrovsky allowed three goals on 20 shots. He was replaced by Curtis McElhinney to start the third period. Early in the second period, Loktionov poked home his fifth to make it 2-0 on the power play -- and Carolinas eighth shot -- with Jenner in the box for delay of game. Bobrovksy stopped Harrisons point shot -- that broke the stick of Columbus Derek MacKenzie propelling the blade into the slot -- but defenceman Jack Johnson couldnt stop Loktionov. "I think the second period we picked it up and basically we scored at the right time with timely goals," Muller said. Columbus had chances the rest of the period, but couldnt beat Khudobin, who made a nice stop on R.J. Umberger. The Blue Jackets took two more penalties in the period that tempered their momentum. Then with room down the right side, Dwyer scored his seventh at 17:20 on a slap shot from the right circle that beat Bobrovsky near side. In the third period, Khudobin turned aside one shot after another until Jenner scored his 13th on a redirection with 50 seconds left. "Its funny, weve been on the other end so many times this year outshooting teams and coming up short," Muller said. "Change it around tonight and your goalie wins the hockey game. I guess it balances it out." Notes: The 47 shots for Columbus were a season high. ...The Hurricanes last won in Columbus on March 8, 2004, a span of four games. ... Blue Jackets LW Blake Comeau knocked Hurricanes D Ryan Murphy from the game in the first period with a hit into the glass. It was Comeaus first game since a two-game suspension for boarding Red Wings defenceman Brendan Smith. ... Hurricanes C Elias Lindholm and D Justin Faulk fell ill and were late scratches. Dennis Eckersley Jersey . - Buffalo Bills running back C. Kendall Graveman Jersey . 5 Trade Deadline is drawing closer and teams will be deciding on whether to buy or sell while figuring out which players can make the biggest difference and hold the greatest value. http://www.authenticbaseshopathletic...ingers-Jersey/ .com) - A pair of programs shooting for their 10th win of the season get together at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, as the NC State Wolfpack tangle with 22nd-ranked West Virginia during the challenge round of the Gotham Classic.SAO PAULO - Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has decided to stay with Brazils national team despite the death of his nephew in an accident two days before the opening match of the World Cup. Scolari attended the official FIFA news conference in Sao Paulo on Wednesday and did not travel to be with his family in southern Brazil, where 48-year-old Tarcisio Joao Schneider died in a car accident on Tuesday. He also took charge of the teams training session at the Itaquerao Stadium where Brazil will play Croatia on Thursday. Scolari said he was drawing strength from seeing his players dedication in their preparations for the World Cup. "I find the strength by working with this group, in this environment, where the players are dedicating themselves to their goal day after day," Scolari said. "This helps me leave the sadness behind and stick to the positive things that are happening." The coach was told about Schneiders death just before the teams training session outside Rio de Janeiro on Tuesday, one of thee last before the opener. Joe Morgan Jersey. "Sometimes we have to deal with some difficulties, but you have to try to move on," Scolari said. Schneiders brother, Darlan, was one of Brazils physical trainers when Scolaris team won the 2002 World Cup in South Korea and Japan. Highway police in the southern state of Rio Grande do Sul said Schneider, the son of one of Scolaris sisters, died when the car he was driving collided head-on with a truck on the opposite lane. Its not the first time that Scolari has had to deal with a personal tragedy since Brazil began its World Cup preparations. Last month, he had to leave the training camp to attend the funeral of one of his brothers-in-law. There was also a shadow cast over the start of the 2010 tournament in South Africa, when Nelson Mandela was not able to attend the tournaments opening match because his 13-year-old great-granddaughter died in a car crash on the way home from a tournament-eve concert. ___ Follow Tales Azzoni at http://twitter.com/tazzoni Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
