BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Jeff Skinner scored with 1:24 left in the third period and Cam Ward made 39 saves in leading the Carolina Hurricanes to a 4-3 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Friday night.

Brandon Sutter and Tim Brent scored short-handed goals, while Jay Harrison also scored for the Hurricanes, who have won two straight since getting off to a 0-2-1 start to the season. Ward had a solid outing, at one point stopping 30 consecutive shots.

Skinner's goal came 57 seconds after Drew Stafford tied the game at 3.
