RALEIGH, N.C. - Chris Thorburn scored the tiebreaking goal with 1:03 remaining to lift the Winnipeg Jets to a 2-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes tonight. 

Andrew Ladd also scored for the Jets, who are 9-2-0 since Paul Maurice took over as coach on Jan. 12. Maurice coached 920 games for the Hurricanes franchise during two stints with the team.

Carolina Hurricanes' Jordan Staal (11) dives for the puck against Winnipeg Jets' Jacob Trouba (8) and Andrew Ladd (16) during first period at the PNC Arena in Raleigh, N.C., on Tuesday.

Ondrej Pavelec made 28 saves for the Jets.

Winnipeg took the lead when Jacob Trouba circled around the net and sent the puck across the crease to Thorburn, who knocked it past goalie Anton Khudobin.

Riley Nash scored for Carolina, and Khudobin made 25 saves.

The Hurricanes went 10-4-0 in January and had won five of six, but their offence sputtered in this tight-checking game.

Winnipeg opened the scoring 12:57 into the second period when Michael Frolik skated past Carolina defenceman Justin Faulk on a rush down the left wing. Khudobin stopped Frolik's shot, but Ladd batted the rebound into the net.

Ladd, who has seven points in his last six games, was a member of the Hurricanes when they won the Stanley Cup in 2006.

The Jets got a boost when they killed off a 51-second two-man advantage for the Hurricanes late in the second period. Carolina's John-Michael Liles hit the post with a slap shot during that stretch.

Carolina tied the score at 1 early in the third period. After the Hurricanes skated into the zone, Drayson Bowman tried to control the puck in the slot. Bowman couldn't get his stick on it, but the puck came to Nash, who snapped it past Pavelec.

NOTES: Carolina began the night having played the fewest games in the NHL. Winnipeg entered having played 32 one-goal games this season, third-most in the league.
