RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Bryan Allen scored his first goal of the season on a breakaway coming out of the penalty box, and the Carolina Hurricanes held on for a 4-3 win over the Nashville Predators on Tuesday night.

Nashville's Gabriel Bourque scored less than a minute later – at 2:16 of the third period -- to cut Carolina's lead to 4-3 but the Predators couldn't tie it.

Eric Staal and Tim Brent scored power-plays goals in the second period, and Jamie McBain had Carolina's first goal earlier in the frame.

Craig Smith and Colin Wilson also scored for Nashville, which had its two-game winning streak snapped. The Predators, who won't play again until Saturday at Florida, lost in regulation for just the sixth time in regulation since Dec. 28.
