Carolina's Frantisek Kaberle didn't waste any time shaking off the rust after a lengthy stay on the injured list.

The defenseman looks to build off a strong season debut Thursday when the Hurricanes visit the Boston Bruins.

Kaberle missed the start of the season following September shoulder surgery and did not play until Tuesday's 2-1 win at Montreal. He made a big impact in his season debut, scoring the deciding goal midway through the third period.

"It's kind of nice," he said. "I'm happy we won tonight. My shoulder felt pretty good, so I'm pretty satisfied with this night."

Whitney's trick leads Canes over Bruins

BOSTON (AP) - Ray Whitney had three goals and an assist to lift the Carolina Hurricanes to a 5-2 victory over the Boston Bruins on Thursday night.

Carolina trailed 1-0 but scored four goals in the final 4:24 of the second period. Whitney needed only 1:40 to notch his second NHL hat trick and then helped set up Justin Williams' team-leading 28th goal with 2.6 seconds remaining in the period, sending the Bruins off the ice to a chorus of boos.

Carolina won for the third time in nine games and took three of four in the season series against the Bruins.

Hurricanes left wing Erik Cole had to be helped off the ice with an apparent lower body injury at 8:46 of the second period and didn't return. Last year, Cole missed the final 22 regular-season games and the first 23 playoff contests. He returned for the last two games of the Stanley Cup finals for the champion Hurricanes.

Rod Brind'Amour added an empty-net goal and had three assists. Cam Ward made 34 saves for Carolina.
