NHL Scores & More: Hurricanes Squeak By Jets, Kings Move Into First Place

The Hurricanes did all of their damage early, but it was enough for a 2-1 win over the Jets. The Kings, meanwhile, moved into a first-place tie in the Pacific Division following a 4-1 win over the Senators.

Hurricanes 2, Jets 1

From Brian LeBlanc of Canes Country:

One strong period was all the Hurricanes needed Monday night as they welcomed the Winnipeg Jets to the RBC Center for the final game before the All-Star break. The Canes beat Jets goaltender Chris Mason on two of their first four shots, and those markers held up as the Canes won 2-1 on the strength of goals by Jeff Skinner and Tim Brent in front of 16,045 on Teacher Appreciation Night.

Kings 4, Senators 1

From Eric Stephen of SB Nation Los Angeles:

Three second-period goals gave the Los Angeles Kings a nice end to their first half of the season, beating the Ottawa Senators 4-1 on Monday night at Staples Center. The win propelled the Kings (24-16-10) into a first-place tie in the Pacific Division with the San Jose Sharks, who lost 2-1 in a shootout in Edmonton Monday night.

Drew Doughty had two assists for the Kings, who improved to 9-2-6 under new head coach Darryl Sutter. The Kings are 11-1-1 all-time against the Senators.
