Victor Rask had the first multigoal game of his career, scoring twice as the Carolina Hurricanes beat the New Jersey Devils 3-2 on Sunday.

Rask, who has scored in three straight games, ended the Hurricanes' skid of six consecutive games without a power-play goal when he connected in the second period to give him 20 this season.

Ron Hainsey scored the other Carolina goal, and Cam Ward made 23 saves.

Bobby Farnham and Travis Zajac had the goals for New Jersey. Devils goalie Scott Wedgewood, playing in his fourth NHL game, stopped 20 shots.

The victory gave the Hurricanes a 3-2 win in the season series. Each of the four previous games also was decided in regulation, with both teams losing once at home.
