Hot streak helps Hurricanes surge into playoff contention

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) The Carolina Hurricanes have skated their way out of being tied for last place into playoff contention - all in just six weeks.

They have been the NHL's best team since Dec. 30, going 14-5-1 in that stretch while making an improbable push to snap the league's longest active postseason drought.

The Hurricanes entered Thursday night's games three points out of a playoff spot with 25 games remaining, a stretch run that starts Friday night when Edmonton visits.
