HURRICANES-JETS

WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) -- Adam Lowry's first NHL goal helped the Winnipeg Jets snap a four-game losing streak with a 3-1 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday night.

Andrew Ladd and Dustin Byfuglien also scored for the Jets (2-4-0), who won their first game at home this season.

Jiri Tlusty scored on the power play for Carolina (0-3-2), which is still looking for its first win of the season and had been coming off back-to-back overtime losses.

Ondrej Pavelec made 20 saves in the win. Anton Khudobin faced 26 shots in Carolina's net.

Ladd opened the game's scoring with his first goal of the season at 1:57 and Lowry netted his 40 seconds later.

Byfuglien scored an unassisted goal on a breakaway late in the second period to make it 3-1.

PANTHERS-GODFREY

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- The Panthers announced they've released longtime defensive back Charles Godfrey and signed guard Chris Scott.

Godfrey joined the Panthers as a third-round draft pick in 2008 and played in 82 games with 75 starts.

Godfrey, 28, had worked his way back from a torn Achilles tendon in 2013, playing in seven games with one start this season. However, Carolina's secondary has struggled, allowing 15 touchdown passes.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera said in a release Tuesday it was a difficult decision because "Charles has been a large part of what we have done since I came to Carolina four years ago. He has always tried to do everything we have asked of him and worked extremely hard."

Scott started eight games for Carolina in 2013 before being released in August.

NASCAR-LOGANO-RETALIATION

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Joey Logano says he's spoken to Danica Patrick and is not concerned she will retaliate against him.

Logano spun Patrick during the Oct. 11 race at Charlotte and she was given permission over her team radio to retaliate. She later remarked that wrecking Logano would have no effect on his title chances because he'd already earned a spot in the third round of the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship.

The Chase field has been reset, though, and Logano heads into Martinsville Speedway this weekend as one of eight drivers trying to advance into the finale. A win in any of the next three rounds sends a driver to the Nov. 16 finale with a shot at the title.

Logano took responsibility for the accident with Patrick.
