RALEIGH, N.C. -- The previous time the Carolina Hurricanes had a month like this, a rare playoff appearance soon followed. The Hurricanes capped their first 10-win month since 2009 by beating the St. Louis Blues 3-1 on Friday night. Jeff Skinner scored the go-ahead goal in the second period, Alexander Semin added an empty-netter with 1:04 left and Nathan Gerbe scored on an early power play. Opening a four-game homestand that precedes the Olympic break, Carolina earned its fifth win in six games while staying in the mix in the crowded Metropolitan Division. "We want to have a good feeling going into the break and we want to sort of build off this win," Skinner said. David Backes scored on the power play for St. Louis. The Blues, who average 3.36 goals per game, missed a chance to pull even with Chicago atop the Central Division by losing just their fourth game against an Eastern Conference team. "Hard to find a lot of good players in our game today," St. Louis coach Ken Hitchcock said. "They deserve a lot of credit. They skated. They checked. They played hard. And we looked like we had the body language like we wanted an easier game. Didnt get it." Anton Khudobin stopped 26 shots for the Hurricanes. Jaroslav Halak made 28 saves in his fourth straight start, but had his four-game winning streak snapped. Khudobin stopped all 10 shots he faced in the third period, including a nifty leg save on Alex Pietrangelo with about 1 1/2 minutes left. And, he got some help from the goal post after two Blues -- Jaden Schwartz and Jay Bouwmeester -- each rang it in the final 2 minutes. "You need the post to be a goalies best friend," Carolina coach Kirk Muller said. Semin then tacked on his highlight-reel empty-net goal that capped the Hurricanes best month in a while. They went 10-4 in January, and their previous 10-win month in March 2009 led into their only playoff appearance since 2006, when they won their only Stanley Cup. Skinner put Carolina up 2-1 off a draw 1:51 into the second. After Jordan Staal won a faceoff, the puck found Skinners stick and he beat Halak with a wrist shot from the slot that clipped the goalies glove for his seventh goal of the month. "Didnt really mean to bank it off his glove and in," Skinner said. "You just try and get it to the net sometimes." That turned out to be enough support for Khudobin, who earned the decision in every game this month for Carolina. He helped the Hurricanes leapfrog idle Columbus and Philadelphia in the division standings, with 59 points. When the night started, only 11 points separated second place from the cellar in the Metropolitan. The Hurricanes never trailed on Friday, taking advantage of some sloppy play early by the Blues -- who were whistled for three penalties in the opening 11:25. Carolina went up 1-0 when Gerbe one-timed a slick cross-ice pass from Andrej Sekera 3:46 in. "The puck had moved, and there was an opening there and he found a soft area," Sekera said. "He was wide open, so I just tried to get it to him, and he did a pretty good job." The Blues, who have the leagues second-best power-play unit, tied it at 9:23 when Backes beat Khudobin high for his 150th career goal with St. Louis but just his second since Dec. 14. "Its nice to be back on the scoreboard but were more interested in winning," Backes said. "Tonight was a game where they brought a hard-skating, tough-checking game, and we didnt have a ton of answers for it." NOTES: St. Louis finished the month 9-5-0. ... The Blues entered with 37 points on the road, the second-best total in the league, but have not won in Raleigh since 2009. ... Carolina G Cam Ward, out all of January with an unspecified lower-body injury, made a conditioning start Friday night with Charlotte of the AHL. Patrick Robinson Saints Jersey . Both sides came closest to scoring in the first half, when Roma had a goal from Mattia Destro waved off for offside and Inters Rodrigo Palacio headed high. "A draw was a fair result. Neither squad had many chances," Roma midfielder Miralem Pjanic said. Natrell Jamerson Saints Jersey .Tzavelas opened the scoring in the 11th and Pereyra added another in the 51st. Emmanuel Kone pulled one back in the 80th and Levadiakos missed several chances to level in the last 10 minutes. -- Kenneth Faried made a turnaround hook shot over Draymond Green with a half-second remaining, and the Denver Nuggets made Golden State wait at least one more game to secure a playoff berth with a stunning 100-99 win over the Warriors on Thursday night. Cameron Meredith Saints Jersey . Hamilton signed offensive linemen Mike Filer, Joel Reinders, Landon Rice and Carson Rockhill. Kurt Coleman Saints Jersey . Winnipeg trailed by five points in the final minute when quarterback Drew Willy completed a 13-play, 75-yard drive with Feoli-Gudinos 18-yard touchdown catch on third down to lift the Bombers to a 34-33 victory over the Montreal Alouettes on Friday night.TORONTO -- Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons leaned back in his chair Monday afternoon, spat some chewing tobacco juice into a cup and smiled as he answered questions from the dozen reporters gathered in his office for a pre-game media availability. Gibbons knows most of the scribes by name and is quick with a joke and a laugh. He seemed as relaxed as ever even though the optimism that reigned here last spring is long gone. The Blue Jays are mired in last place in the American League East and are playing out the string on what playoff-starved Toronto fans had hoped would be a turnaround campaign. Some columnists have written the time is right for a managerial change while calls to the local all-sports radio stations have been getting angrier by the day. Gibbons has been an easy target given that his club took a poor 58-73 record into Mondays series opener against New York. The 51-year-old manager still has the same laid-back demeanour that he had back in April when Rogers Centre was abuzz after an expensive off-season roster overhaul. Naturally Gibbons is disappointed that his team has underperformed. But he doesnt seem the least bit bothered by the stories or calls for him to be replaced. "I dont get into whats fair and whats unfair," Gibbons said in his friendly Texan drawl. "Its a tough business man, and youre in the arena. So its open season. So have at it, I guess you could say." His supporters point to the fact he has been hamstrung by an injury-riddled roster throughout the season. His critics question his teams ability to execute basic fundamentals on a consistent basis. Toronto struggled out of the gate this season and never really recovered. The much-hyped starting rotation was largely a disappointment, making things all the more challenging in one of the toughest divisions in the major leagues. Gibbons previously managed the Blue Jays for parts of five seasons before being fired in June 2008. He ssaid he doesnt fear the possibility that a managerial change could be made again.dddddddddddd "My life is good. I enjoy competing every day out there," he said. "You play to win that game and in the end, people make decisions on things like that. I mean really, whats there to fear?" The Blue Jays struggled mightily over a 2-8 road trip that wrapped up Sunday. The team is back home for a six-game homestand at Rogers Centre, beginning with a three-game set with the Yankees. New York is fighting to stay in the American League wild-card hunt. The Blue Jays, meanwhile, have to settle for their usual late-summer role of spoiler. Gibbons, who is reportedly signed to a two-year deal with options, is expecting his players to step up and play hard over the last few weeks of the season. "Its easy when things go bad to tuck your tail and run, no question about it," he said. "And its easy to play when things are going good. Its tough to play when things are going bad, youre feeling the heat and everybody is breathing down your neck. "But youre a professional, getting paid good money, a lot of people are still coming to watch and they expect a good effort." The manager can be an easy scapegoat when the results arent there. The calls for the Blue Jays to make a change will only get louder if the losing continues. Gibbons doesnt pay much attention to it. "I dont read a whole lot (of reports), occasionally I might," he said. "I watch highlights and stuff on TV. But that goes with the business. Everybody gets fired in this business sooner or later. You really havent done anything if you havent." The Blue Jays still have a decent foundation in place and some solid prospects in the system. Many of those minor leaguers will get a look over these last few weeks. "We think this team could play better in the future," Gibbons said. "Were banking on that."
