RALEIGH, N.C. (AP)
Manning scored on a short-handed chance at the 8:00 mark of the third period, lifting the Flyers to a 4-3 victory over Carolina on Sunday, snapping a two-game losing streak.
''We hadn't really been getting our chances,'' Manning said. ''(
''We got good efforts in all areas of our game,'' Flyers coach Dave Hakstol said. ''You have to have that, especially when it's a back-to-back night and a 5 o'clock start. You have to have contributions from all parts of your lineup and all areas of your game, and that's what we got.''
The Flyers beat Carolina for the second time this season. The Hurricanes fell to 6-1-1 in their last eight home games against Philadelphia.
''There were some positives,'' Hurricanes coach Bill Peters said. ''We probably scored enough to win. Three goals should be the magic number in this league as you get going. We had enough there, but we're giving up too much and that's not a recipe for success short-term or long-term.''
Carolina general manager Ron Francis holds the Hurricanes franchise record with points in his first 11 games in 1984.
Philadelphia was up 1-0 after outshooting the Hurricanes 13-9 in the first period. Gostisbehere scoring unassisted from the left point on the power play with 2:03 left for his fourth goal and seventh point in six career games against Carolina.
Faulk tied it at 1:01 of the second, beating Neuvirth through plenty of traffic from the high slot.
However, Gudas put the Flyers up 2-1 at 7:07, beating Ward through traffic from the right point with Giroux on the secondary assist.
''We've played a lot of games,'' Giroux said. ''We don't have the record we want right now, but we're playing better as a team. I take a look at (my statistics) once in a while, but I'm more worried about the minuses there. If you want to be a good player you've got to be responsible offensively and defensively, and we've got some work to do in there.''
Skinner beat Neuvirth from the right doorstep at 10:13 to tie it again. Carolina got the lead with 8:02 to go in the period when Stalberg got the puck by Neuvirth's five-hole on a rush.
The Flyers tied it again with 2:46 remaining in the second when Giroux scored from the slot.
Flyers: Host Detroit on Wednesday night.
Hurricanes: At Ottawa on Tuesday night to begin a two-game road swing.
