RALEIGH, N.C. -- Chris Thorburn thinks one of the reasons the Winnipeg Jets have been successful under new coach Paul Maurice is that theyre playing together as a team. Demonstrating that newfound sense of camaraderie, Jets players wanted to win Tuesday nights game against Carolina in part because Maurice coached 920 games for the Hurricanes franchise. "We all understand his past and what he meant to this organization as far as the Hurricanes," Thorburn said. "We were playing for him as well as the two points." Winnipeg accomplished both goals when Thorburn scored the tiebreaker with 1:03 remaining to lift the Jets to a 2-1 win over the Hurricanes. It was Thorburns second goal of the season. Andrew Ladd also scored for the Jets, who are 9-2-0 since Maurice took over as coach on Jan. 12. Despite his players sentiments, Maurice said the game had no special significance for him. "This isnt my first tour through here, but we all care about each other in there, so Im taking it," he said. Winnipeg took the lead when Jacob Trouba circled around the net and sent the puck across the crease to Thorburn, who knocked it past goalie Anton Khudobin. "Great confidence in a young man to want to make the play that decides the game," Maurice said of Trouba, the young defenceman who asserted himself on the game-winner. "Not sit back and not want to make a mistake -- he wants the puck on his stick." Ondrej Pavelec made 28 saves for the Jets. Riley Nash scored for Carolina, and Khudobin made 25 saves. The Hurricanes went 10-4-0 in January and had won five of six, but their offence sputtered in this tight-checking game. "Two mistakes cost us two goals tonight," coach Kirk Muller said. "But overall, I thought our guys played hard and competed and skated and did a lot of good things -- just not the outcome we wanted." Winnipeg opened the scoring 12:57 into the second period when Michael Frolik skated past Carolina defenceman Justin Faulk on a rush down the left wing. Khudobin stopped Froliks shot, but Ladd batted the rebound into the net. Ladd, who has seven points in his last six games, was a member of the Hurricanes when they won the Stanley Cup in 2006. "Its always fun to score against your former team," Ladd said. "I get up for these games. You always have a little chip on your shoulder for a team thats traded you away." The Jets got a boost when they killed off a 51-second two-man advantage for the Hurricanes late in the second period. Carolinas John-Michael Liles hit the post with a slap shot during that stretch. Carolina tied it at 1 early in the third period. After the Hurricanes skated into the zone, Drayson Bowman tried to control the puck in the slot. Bowman couldnt get his stick on it, but the puck came to Nash, who snapped it past Pavelec. NOTES: Carolina began the night having played the fewest games in the NHL. ...

The Raptors traded Rudy Gay, Quincy Acy and Aaron Gray to the Sacramento Kings on Monday, in exchange for Greivis Vasquez, John Salmons, Patrick Patterson and Chuck Hayes.Heading into the Olympic break, the St. Louis Blues continue on top of the TSN.ca NHL Power Rankings, a spot the Blues have held seven times to this point in the season, the most of any team. The Blues, who have on regulation loss in the past eight, are ahead of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Chicago Blackhawks. On a 5-1-1 stretch in the past seven games, the Montreal Canadiens gained ground to move from 13 to nine. The Philadelphia Flyers, on a four-game winning streak, move from 20 to 16 and the Minnesota Wild, who have thrived despite injuries, are up from 23 to 20. Heading the other way, the Winnipeg Jets had back-to-back losses for the first time under Paul Maurice and, as always, goaltending is a concern, contributing to their slide from 12 to 17. The Carolina Hurricanes slip from 16 to 19, though if they are really prepared to keep goaltender Cam Ward in the background, that ranking would improve based on how well Anton Khuddobin has played when given the opportunity this year.dddddddddddd No team should be welcoming the Olympic break more than the Vancouver Canucks, who have two regulation wins in the past 20 games and desperately need to get healthy if they are going to mount a late-season charge to recapture a playoff spot. In any case, the Canucks slide sees them drop from 19 to 23. Among the rest of Canadian teams, the Toronto Maple Leafs sit at 15, up a couple of spots, and their highest placement in the rankings since late November. A blowout loss to Boston in the final game before the break knocked the Ottawa Senators down a couple of spots, from 22 to 24, while the suddenly-improving Edmonton Oilers are up from 28 to 26, and the Calgary Flames are down from 27 to 28.
