RALEIGH, N. Custom Calgary Flames Jerseys .C. -- Jeff Carter may never be a fan of having shootouts. Still, there is one scenario where he enjoys the format. "I like it when I score," Carter said. Carter was a happy man Friday night, scoring the shootout winner to lift the Los Angeles Kings to a 2-1 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes. Dwight King also scored for the Kings while Jonathan Quick made 27 saves. Jeff Skinner had Carolinas goal, and Cam Ward stopped 36 shots. Carter, who had scored four goals in his first four games of the season, went to his backhand in the shootout to beat Ward. Quick stopped Nathan Gerbe, Alexander Semin and Skinner in the shootout to make Carters goal hold up as the winner. "Hes a top-class goalie, and he showed it," King said of Quick. Ward, Carolinas No. 1 netminder, has yet to win a game this season -- both of the Hurricanes victories have come with back-up Anton Khudobin in net. King scored on a short-handed breakaway 13:26 into the third period, sliding the puck through Wards legs after Carolinas Justin Faulk turned the puck over near the Hurricanes blue line. Carolina tied the score 40 seconds later on the same power play when Skinner cleaned up a rebound off an Andrej Sekera shot from the point. Up until that sequence, there had been few scoring chances in the tight-checking affair. The Kings did pressure Ward in the opening minutes of the game, and the Hurricanes Eric Staal and Alexander Semin misfired on a two-on-one opportunity in the second. Otherwise, there wasnt much room to manoeuvr. "It wasnt 50 minutes of nothing -- it was a pretty good game," said Los Angeles coach Darryl Sutter. Los Angeles power play had some dangerous moments in the third period, but the unit couldnt beat Ward. The Kings also had a power play in overtime but couldnt generate many chances. Los Angeles came into the game having scored on 31.2 per cent of their man advantages this season. For his part, Carolina coach Kirk Muller was pleased with his teams effort. It was the first of 20 back-to-back games for the Hurricanes -- Carolina won 3-2 on Thursday night in Washington. "I think thats a game that shows our team is growing together," Muller said. "Obviously, we didnt get the extra point, but you know three (points) out of four -- thats pretty good." The Kings dominated in the faceoff circle, winning 69 per cent of the draws. Elias Lindholm, Carolinas first-round draft pick in the summer, suffered an upper-body injury in the second period and did not return.

RENTON, Wash. -- The Seattle Seahawks have called a news conference for Friday morning amid a report they have reached a contract extension with coach Pete Carroll. NFL Network reported Thursday night, citing a "source," that Carroll and the Seahawks had reached agreement on a contract extension. Carrolls original five-year deal with Seattle was set to expire after the 2014 season. The Seahawks announcement did not specify the nature of the news conference and team officials would not confirm the report of an extension for Carroll. Carroll reached the top of the NFL last season, leading the Seahawks to their first Super Bowl title. Lured away from USC in 2010 with the chance at complete control over the football operations, Carroll tore down then rebuilt the Seahawks roster into one of the best in the NFL. Hes 38-26 in four regular seasons with Seattle and 5-2 in the playoffs. Carroll has made competition the benchmark of his time in Seattle. Its why quarterback Russell Wilson and cornerback Richard Sherman have become stars -- because they were given opportunities in Carrolls system. Carroll, 62, is the second oldest coach in the NFL, but rarely appears his age. He came to Seattle because of the chance he didnt have in his two previous stops as an NFL head coach: control. Seattle gave him the reins to the franchise, and hired him before adding general manager John Schneider to the mix, a relationship that has been marked by stability and success. Carroll lacked control in his previous positions with New England and the New York Jets. But after a decade of winnning with the Trojans and having that control, it was something Carroll demanded if he was going to get back into the professional ranks and the Seahawks were willing. Calgary Flames Pro Shop. Seattle also let Carroll imprint his attitude on the locker room. He wanted a fun atmosphere filled with accountability. Competition was at the crux of everything Carroll did from the day he inherited a 5-11 team. Carroll took Seattle to the playoffs in his first season despite a 7-9 regular season record. The Seahawks plateaued in 2011 going 7-9 again but took a jump in 2012 after drafting Wilson. The Seahawks went 11-5 in the regular season and reached the divisional round of the playoffs. The roster turnover had been completed and there were massive expectations going into 2013. Seattle matched and surpassed those expectations. Carroll guided Seattle to 13 wins in the regular season, the NFC West title and home-field advantage in the playoffs. Seattle knocked off New Orleans in the divisional round, then edged San Francisco in the NFC title game to reach its second Super Bowl. At the Super Bowl, Carroll got to celebrate the way he did watching USCs run of dominance in the mid-2000s. Seattles defence stifled the highest scoring offence in NFL history, humbling Denver in a 43-8 beating to give Seattle its first title. After the season Carroll sounded as if he was locked in to a long future with the Seahawks. "Were trying to do something really good for a really long time and we want to see how far we can go and someday, we look back and see what we accomplished," Carroll said. ' ' '
