Stempniak scores twice, Hurricanes down Canadiens 4-1

MONTREAL (AP) Trying to keep pace in the postseason race, the Carolina Hurricanes took care of business in an arena at which they haven't had much luck recently.

Lee Stempniak scored twice and the Carolina Hurricanes defeated the Montreal Canadiens 4-1 on Thursday night to extend their point streak to nine games and keep their playoff hopes alive.

Carolina had not beaten the Canadiens in Montreal in seven games (0-6-1), dating to Feb. 13, 2012. The Hurricanes had scored just four goals over that stretch.
