RALEIGH, N.C. - Go ahead and chalk this one up to winning ugly -- there's no other way to describe it.

By their own admission, the Winnipeg Jets know they need to be much better and vowed that they will.

Stylistically, it was probably their worst game since Paul Maurice took over, as they struggled for much of the night to find their skating legs.

But at the end of the day, you don't get style points in the NHL.

And when you're trying to find any possible way to stay in the playoff picture, the only thing that really matters are wins and losses.

After Chris Thorburn found himself alone on the doorstep with 63 seconds left in the third period to pump home a pass from Jacob Trouba, the Jets eked out another one-goal win in a 2-1 triumph over the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday night.

Just like that, their hot streak continued.
