ST. LOUIS (AP) — Jussi Jokinen scored the lone goal in the shootout and Cam Ward stopped 38 shots to lead the Carolina Hurricanes to a 2-1 win over the St. Louis Blues on Saturday night.

Carolina, playing the third game of a five-game road trip, won for only the second time in its last nine road games.

Ward (12-9-3) stopped all three shots he faced in the shootout. Carolina improved to 2-4 in the tiebreaker this season. St. Louis fell to 3-3.

Brandon Sutter gave the Hurricanes a 1-0 lead in the third period, but defenseman Alex Pietrangelo’s power-play goal tied it.
