RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Evander Kane had a goal and three assists to lead the Winnipeg Jets past the Carolina Hurricanes 4-1 on Tuesday.

Kane assisted Olli Jokinen's goal in the first period and goals by Tobias Enstrom and Alexander Burmistrov in the second to help the Jets extend their lead in the Southeast Division to six points over Carolina, which is in the midst of a 0-5-1 slide.

Ondrej Pavelec had 38 saves for Winnipeg.

Kane was credited with a third-period goal when Carolina defenseman Jamie McBain swatted at the puck and knocked it into the net past Justin Peters.

Jiri Tlusty scored his 14th of the season for Carolina, which has scored one goal in each of its past five games.

Peters, making the start after injuries to Cam Ward on March 3 and Dan Ellis on Thursday, made 31 saves for the Hurricanes.

With the Jets ahead 2-1 and 3:21 left in the second period, Burmistrov was credited with a goal after shooting once, having the deflection bounce to him chest-high and then into the net. After a lengthy review, the goal stood to make it 3-1.

Enstrom blasted a shot over Peters' left shoulder at 11:31 of the second, eight seconds after Jordan Staal was called for high sticking.

Tlusty opened the scoring at 6:06 of the first. Riley Nash passed from behind the net to Tlusty, who one-timed it past Pavelec.

Winnipeg tied it at 13:44 of the first. Kane poked the puck free near the Winnipeg blue line and raced in on a 2-on-1 break. He slid the puck to Jokinen, who beat Peters for his sixth goal of the season.

NOTES: The Hurricanes placed forwards Jussi Jokinen and Tim Wallace on waivers earlier Tuesday. Jokinen has five goals and five assists in 30 games, and Wallace has one goal in 21 games. Both are minus-7 for the season. Jokinen is in the second of a three-year contract that pays $3 million a season. ... Carolina's Alexander Semin played his 500th NHL game. ... The teams played the second of four meetings in the lockout-shortened season. The remaining two games are in Winnipeg. ... The Jets improved to 10-6-2 on the road, and the Hurricanes fell to 7-9-0 at home. .. Carolina fell to 8-2-2 when scoring first. ... The Hurricanes were outscored 12-3 on their three-game homestand.
