RALEIGH, N.C. -- The Carolina Hurricanes finally seem to have figured things out. Even if once again, its almost certainly too late to earn a playoff berth. John-Michael Liles had a goal and two assists in Carolinas 4-1 win over the Dallas Stars on Thursday night. Liles, Eric Staal and Justin Faulk each scored during a run of three goals in a 4:36 span of the second period. "Its a matter of all getting on the same page," Liles said, "and I think tonight we were all pretty well on the same page." Riley Nash added a key late goal and Chris Terry had his first two NHL assists to help the Hurricanes win their second straight game and earn points in their fifth straight. Even so, the Hurricanes remain a long shot to make the playoffs for just the second time since they won the 2006 Stanley Cup. They entered with 77 points, six behind Columbus, and with five games left, they still need a lot of help. "Its just a matter of knowing whats successful for us, and when you have success, you can point your finger at, hey, this is why we won that game," Liles said. "Try and repeat it for the following game, and try and get on a roll. For us, its a matter of believing in that system and that reason why weve been winning games, and weve been coming out on the right end of it." Carolina has the leagues second-worst power play but scored twice with the man advantage. "You take a couple penalties, they score back to back on power plays and anytime that happens, its not a good thing," defenceman Alex Goligoski said. "We got behind the 8-ball there, got a push at the end of the second, but when you get down 3-0, its tough." Anton Khudobin made 33 saves in Carolinas first win over the Stars since 2009. "I had a couple saves, and we just started playing (well) and got the result," Khudobin said. Tyler Seguin scored for Dallas, which entered occupying the Western Conferences last wild-card spot but had its three-game winning streak snapped. The Stars were coming off a 5-0 pounding of Washington and had won five of six. Kari Lehtonen made 13 saves but was pulled after allowing three goals. Tim Thomas took over and finished with 15 stops. Seguin pulled the Stars to 3-1 by beating Khudobin high to his glove side at 9:44 of the second. But Khudobin made the save of the night roughly 30 seconds into the third when he slid across the net to stop Alex Chiasson. "We could have been right back in the game," Dallas coach Lindy Ruff said. "We didnt finish." Nash then restored the Hurricanes three-goal lead when he blasted a rebound past Thomas with 12:20 left. Carolina skated in this one without forwards Alexander Semin, who was out with an illness, and Jiri Tlusty, who has an upper-body injury. And their offensive flurry started with a fluke. Liles -- who had his first three-point night since 2011 -- fired a shot that richocheted off Staals left skate, popped high into the air and fluttered behind Lehtonen at 2:30 of the second. That gave the Carolina captain goals in consecutive games but just his third since March 1. "We always say, Shoot the puck," Hurricanes coach Kirk Muller said. "This time of year, it doesnt have to be highlight goals. Just get it there and you never know whats going to happen." There wasnt anything cheap about the Hurricanes second goal: Faulk took a feed from Liles behind the left circle and blistered the puck past Lehtonen at 4:08. Liles capped his first multi-point game since coming to Carolina in a New Years Day trade with Toronto by beating Lehtonen with a quick wrist shot from the left circle to make it 3-0 at 7:05. "I wouldnt say that Ive been playing bad hockey -- I think that Ive been contributing," Liles said. "Maybe the points arent there. ... You play in the league long enough, its going to happen." NOTES: Seguin has points in seven of his last eight road games. ... The Hurricanes recalled Zach Boychuk from their AHL affiliate in Charlotte to help replace Semin and Tlusty. ... D Andrej Sekera (lower body) was a late scratch for Carolina. ... Dallas LW Ray Whitney suffered a lower-body injury in the first period and did not return. Luis Gonzalez Jersey .

Custom Arizona Diamondbacks Jerseys . -- The Vancouver Whitecaps remained unbeaten with a scoreless draw at the New England Revolution on Saturday.Los Angeles, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - As expected, the Los Angeles Dodgers extended free agent shortstop Hanley Ramirez a qualifying offer prior to Mondays deadline. The defending National League West champions also announced that reliever Brian Wilson has elected to exercise the player option on his contract and remain with the Dodgers for the 2015 season. Tendering Ramirez the one-year, $15.3 million offer enables the Dodgers to receive draft-pick compensation should the three-time All-Star sign with another team. As the likely top free agent shortstop available on this offseasons market, Ramirez is almost certain to decline the offer in hopes of securing a multi- yyear deal.dddddddddddd The 30-year-old is a career .300 hitter and batted .345 with 20 home runs in just 86 games for Los Angeles in 2013. Ramirezs production slipped some this past season, though he still hit a respectable .283 with 13 homers, 71 RBI and 14 stolen bases over 128 games. Wilson, who saved 36 games or more in four straight seasons for the rival San Francisco Giants from 2008-11, was re-signed by the Dodgers to a one-year contract that included the 2015 option prior to last season. The veteran right-hander will earn $9.5 million next year. The 32-year-old is coming off a disappointing 2014 campaign in which Wilson posted a 4.66 ERA in 61 appearances.
