CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Cam Ward made 36 saves and the Carolina Hurricanes got their offence going in a 4-0 pre-season victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday night.

Zac Dalpe and Jay Harrison both scored 69 seconds apart in the first period, and Jerome Samson and Riley Nash added second-period goals as Carolina won its first NHL exhibition game this season.

Dalpe scored off a breakaway with 13:17 left in the first, getting a shot past Jets goalie David Aebischer into the upper-right corner of the net. Harrison then knocked down a wayward shot near the blue-line, putting it past Aebischer with 12:08 remaining.

Samson and Nash both put in rebounds, Samson scoring with 6:55 remaining and Nash with 1:26 left in the second. That gave Carolina more goals in one game than it had scored in its previous two, both losses.

Aebischer had 26 saves for Winnipeg, which fell to 1-3 in pre-season games.
