There are some things in (Tuesdays) game that you like about your team, some structural stuff, some compete stuff that was definitely much better, coach Dave Tippett said. Still some turnovers, some poor penalties - our margin for error is slim, we have to take those out of our game. But certainly some things to build on and some things to correct. ... We still have a ways to go. So does Toronto (22-23-4), which has gone 3-14-1 since Dec. 18 for the NHLs second-worst record over that span.

The Hurricanes hadnt won a regular-season game at Detroit since Nov. 14, 1989, when they were still the Hartford Whalers. They did win Game 1 of the 2002 Stanley Cup finals at Detroit, but that was their only victory of that series. Elias Lindholm and Jiri Tlusty scored in the first period Friday, and Carolina held on to hand the Red Wings their second regulation loss in eight games. Riley Sheahan scored for the Red Wings in the third period. Detroit has already clinched its 23rd straight post-season berth, and the Hurricanes are out of the running. The Red Wings outshot Carolina 29-19 but ended up with what could be a costly loss in the race for playoff seeding. Detroit will be a wild card in the Eastern Conference, so the Red Wings will face either Boston or Pittsburgh in the first round. With 91 points, Detroit is tied with Columbus, and each team has one game remaining. Philadelphia also has 91 points with two games to play. Lindhollm opened the scoring on the power play, and Tlusty made it 2-0 when he banged a rebound past goalie Jimmy Howard.dddddddddddd Early in the second, Detroits Tomas Jurco skated in on a semi-breakaway but couldnt put the puck past Ward. At the other end, Eric Staal flipped the puck over a sprawling Howard, only to have Red Wings defenceman Jakub Kindl bat it out of the air with his stick. Detroits Justin Abdelkader had much of the net to shoot at when a rebound came his way later in the second, but his attempt went wide. Sheahan finally jammed the puck past Ward on a power play with 16:17 to play in the game, but Ward made a fine pad save on Abdelkader with about 9:30 remaining, thwarting a 2-on-1 by Detroit and keeping the Hurricanes ahead. Darren Helms impressive open-ice move also went for naught when Ward stopped him in close. The Carolina-Hartford franchise had 16 losses and a tie since its previous victory at Detroit in the regular season. NOTES: The Red Wings recalled G Petr Mrazek from Grand Rapids of the AHL and assigned G Jared Coreau to Toledo of the ECHL. ' ' '
