Jeff Carter recorded a natural hat trick and Daniel Briere had two goals and an assist to lead the visiting Philadelphia Flyers to an 8-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday night.

Rookie Sergei Bobrovsky improved to 9-2-1 on the season with 35 saves while captain Mike Richards, Scott Hartnell and Nikolay Zherdev also scored for the Atlantic Division-leading Flyers.

Briere got Philadelphia on the board at 7:57 of the first period before Carter took over.

Carter then cleaned up veteran defenseman Chris Pronger's point shot on the power play for his first of the night with 1:18 remaining in the opening period.

Carter struck again less than two minutes into the second period on a play that Claude Giroux set up with some good work down low in Carolina’s zone. He then chased Cam Ward from the game with a short-side wrist shot. Ward only made nine saves before getting the hook in the second period.

Justin Peters came on and gave up four more goals on 13 shots, while Chad LaRose had Carolina’s only goal, breaking Bobrovsky’s shutout at 8:44 of the third period.
