GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) _ Carolina defenseman Glen Wesley scored two goals against his old team, leading the Hurricanes to a 3-1 win over the slumping Boston Bruins on Monday night.

Wesley's goal at 2:09 of the second period was his third this season and proved to be the game-winner against Boston, which traded him to the then-Hartford Whalers in 1994.

Since then, Wesley has 12 points in 14 games against Boston.

The Bruins are 1-7-4 in their last 12 games. Carolina, outshot by Boston 28-23, improved to 11-13-4 with its sixth win in 11 games.

Gary Roberts assisted on Wesley's first goal and went on to score an insurance goal on a third-period power play. Roberts took a pass from right wing Sami Kapanen and flicked it over goalie Bryon Dafoe's left shoulder from less than 10 feet at the 3:45 mark.

Roberts' seventh goal of the season and an assist gave him 25 points, tying him with Kapanen as team leader.

Boston defenseman Ray Bourque tied the game 1-1 on a power play with less than two minutes left in the first period. He took a pass from Ted Donato at the center of the blue line and slapped it in from there for his seventh goal of the year.

Wesley's first goal came 12:40 into the game as he brought up the rear of a Carolina break. The last man across the blue line, Wesley was fed from his right by Roberts and slapped in the shot as he neared the faceoff circle.

Carolina goalie Sean Burke made 27 saves and improved his record to 7-6-0. Dafoe dropped to 8-10-4 in his first year with Boston.
