RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Evander Kane had a goal and three assists to lead the Winnipeg Jets past the Carolina Hurricanes 4-1 on Tuesday.

Kane assisted Olli Jokinen's goal in the first period and goals by Tobias Enstrom and Alexander Burmistrov in the second to help the Jets extend their lead in the Southeast Division to six points over Carolina, which is in the midst of a 0-5-1 slide.

Ondrej Pavelec had 38 saves for Winnipeg.

Kane was credited with a third-period goal when Carolina defenseman Jamie McBain swatted at the puck and knocked it into the net past Justin Peters.

Jiri Tlusty scored his 14th of the season for Carolina, which has scored one goal in each of its past five games.
