Canes collapse in 3rd, lose 5-3 to the Jets

The Hurricanes took a 3-0 lead into the 3rd period against Winnipeg Saturday afternoon, but one bad goal allowed by Pyotr Kochetkov was enough to rattle him and the group couldn't protect him enough in a 5-3 loss to the Jets. Martin Necas, Teuvo Teravainen and Sebastian Aho each scored in the second half of the second period to give the Canes a 3-0 lead heading to the 3rd, but Kyle Connor's quick shot from just inside the blue line caught Pyotr Kochetkov by surprise 96 seconds into the period and that was enough to unnerve the Canes rookie goalie. Four minutes later the game was tied and Carolina would fall, 5-3, as Winnipeg completes the season sweep.


Canes top Blue Jackets, 4-2

Brady Skjei scored a goal and assisted on another, Spencer Martin remained unbeaten in goal, and the top lines started doing top line things as the Canes beat Columbus, 4-2. Teuvo Teravainen and Sebastion Aho staked the Hurricanes to a 2-0 lead in the first half of the second period. Then, just after coming out of the penalty box, Brady Skjei scored a one-handed breakaway goal for Carolina's third goal of the second period. Seth Jarvis scored into an empty net late in the 3rd for the final marker.


Canes dig deep for 3-2 win in Minnesota

Stefan Noesen's 3rd period goal gave the Hurricanes a 3-2 win over the Wild in Minnesota. Pyotr Kochetkov made 28 saves and the Canes rallied from a 2-1 deficit late in the 2nd period to pick up the win. Jordan Staal and Andrei Svechnikov each scored as well, with Andrei's coming with about 30 seconds left in the 2nd period. That goal got the Canes even and they played a much better period in the end.


Martin helps Canes steal a point from Buffalo

Spencer Martin made 30 saves in Carolina's 3-2 shootout loss to the Sabres. Carolina twice gave away a 1-goal lead before dragging the game into overtime to earn a point. Tony DeAngelo scored inside of 3 minutes to give the Canes the lead. It was his first goal since December 15th and just his 3rd of the season. Martin Necas scored on the power play with just over 5 minutes left in regulation. But, neither lead was safe for a Hurricanes team that was clearly mentally tired from a grueling week.


Canes stymied in 3rd, can't solve Dallas in 2-1 loss

Sebastian Aho's breakaway goal early in the 2nd was all the Hurricanes could muster in a 2-1 home loss to Dallas. Carolina's winning streak ends at 4 in a row. Pyotr Kochetkov made 14 saves, but couldn't prevent Jason Robertson and Wyatt Johnston from scoring as the Stars sweep the 2-game season series from the Canes. Carolina, who trails the Rangers by 8 points now in the Metropolitan Division, plays Buffalo Sunday to start a 3-game road trip.


Kochetkov saves Canes in 1-0 win over Florida

Pyotr Kotchetkov made a season-high 44 saves for his 3rd shutout of the season as the Canes ended the Panthers 6 game winning streak. It was the 2nd 1-0 shutout in his last 4 starts, having shut out the Devils two weeks ago on 34 shots in an overtime win. Sebastian Aho's 21st goal of the season was the only scoring of the game and came with 19 seconds left.


Martin, Martin and Aho lead Canes past Chicago, 6-3

Six different goal-scorers for Carolina as Martin Necas and Sebastian Aho each had a goal and an assist. Michael Bunting, Brent Burns, Jordan Martinook and Jesperi Kotkaniemi all scored, with the latter snapping a 22-game, 2 month goal drought. Necas' 17th goal of the year was the only marker in an otherwise dominant 1st period that also saw Carolina kill off almost 2 minutes of a 5-on-3 power play. Canes are off until Thursday when they'll take on the Atlantic Division leading Florida Panthers here in Raleigh


Canes, Martin come up aces in Vegas

Spencer Martin has never lost a game for the Carolina Hurricanes. He stopped 29 shots as he backstopped Carolina to a 3-1 win in Vegas over the Golden Knights.

Kochetkov's 34-save gem leads Canes to 1-0 OT victory

Pyotr Kochetkov shut out the Devils on 34 shots and Sebastian Aho scored the only goal in overtime as Carolina won 1-0 on Whalers night at PNC Arena. The Hurricanes penalty kill continues to be incredible erasing all 4 New Jersey power plays en route to the win which moved the club within 4 points of the Rangers in the Metropolitan Division. Kochetkov made two huge saves in overtime on Tyler Toffoli withj the second leading to Aho and Martin Necas combining on the game-winner.


Necas' hat trick and both goalies pace Canes to 5-2 win

Martin Necas had a natural hat trick in the first period, and then the weird stuff happened. Both goalies played. Teuvo Teravainen had four assists. And the penalty kill was a perfect 6 for 6 against one of the best power plays in the sport. Oh, and there was a goal without a goal. It was crazy.


Canes late push not enough, fall to Canucks, 3-2

The Hurricanes scored the first goal, but Vancouver scored the last. JT Miller's freebie, early in the second period held up for the 3-2 win.

Carolina had only given up 7 power play goals, TOTAL, since Thanksgiving yielded two in the loss.

Dimitri Orlov's sharp angle goal with 36 seconds left broke a 1-1 tie and helped the Canes to a 3-1 win over Arizona. It was Carolina's last game before the bye-week heading into the All Star break. Martin Necas scored for the 4th time in his last 5 games, it came on the power play in the second period and tied the game at 1. Jesper Fast added an insurance goal 13 seconds after Orlov put the Hurricanes in front. Antti Raanta had to make just 10 saves and NONE in the 3rd period as the Canes held the Coyotes without a shot on target in the final 20 minutes.
