RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Jeff Skinner scored twice in the third period and the Carolina Hurricanes beat the San Jose Sharks 5-2 on Friday night.
    
Chris Terry and Joakim Nordstrom also scored, and Jordan Staal added an empty-netter for Carolina. The Hurricanes bounced back from a 4-2 loss at Ottawa on Thursday night and haven't lost consecutive games in regulation in more than two months.
    
Brent Burns and Tomas Hertl scored for San Jose, which has the league's second-best road record. The Sharks had won three straight and were 4-0-1 in their last five games.
    
Cam Ward was back in the lineup after missing two games with a lower-body injury and made 22 saves for the Hurricanes.
    
Martin Jones stopped 32 shots for the Sharks.
