Jordan Staal scored his first goal with the Hurricanes, and his brother Eric added the winner in Carolina's 4-1 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Monday night.
Jeff Skinner had three assists, Patrick Dwyer added a goal and an assist, and Justin Faulk also scored for Carolina. Cam Ward backed up the offense with a 41-save performance.
Matt Frattin scored the only goal for the Maple Leafs. James Reimer made 35 saves.
Trailing 1-0 after the first period, the Hurricanes tied it 1:21 into the second. After Skinner beat out an icing call, Dwyer fed Jordan Staal, who was alone in front, for his first goal with the Hurricanes since being acquired from Pittsburgh in June. Staal also assisted on Dwyer's third-period goal.
Coyotes 2, Wild 1: Mike Smith stopped 21 shots, Lauri Korpikoski and Martin Hanzal both scored, and Phoenix extended its point streak to five games.
Zach Parise scored his 200th career goal, and Niklas Backstrom stopped 32 shots for Minnesota.
Rangers-Wild trade: The New York Rangers traded rugged forward Mike Rupp to the Minnesota Wild on Monday for forwards Darroll Powe and Nick Palmieri.
