The NHL roundup …
RALEIGH ó Joe Corvo scored with 43.3 seconds left in overtime to lift the Carolina Hurricanes past the Florida Panthers 2-1 on Thursday night.
On an exceptional individual effort, Corvo took a feed from Ray Whitney in the high slot and faked to get around David Booth before backhanding the high puck past both center Gregory Campbell and goalie Tomas Vokoun.
Justin Williams scored his first goal in nearly 13 months and Whitney had two assists for Carolina, which held a 37-20 shots advantage.
Former Hurricane Cory Stillman tied it with 17 minutes left in regulation and Vokoun finished with 35 saves for the Panthers.
Cam Ward stopped 19 shots in helping Carolina’s Paul Maurice get the better of best friend Peter DeBoer of Florida in their first coaching matchup. The Hurricanes have picked up points in six of their seven games since they rehired the coach who led them from 1995-2003.
Red Wings 6, Sharks 0

Capitals 4, Blues 2
WASHINGTON ó Viktor Kozlov had two goals and an assist, and Washington extended its winning streak to five games by beating struggling St. Louis.
Canadiens 5, Flyers 2
MONTREAL ó Alex Kovalev scored a goal to reach 900 NHL points, and Sergei Kostitsyn and Steve Begin each had a goal and an assist to help Montreal snap Philadelphia’s five-game winning streak.
