RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Jordan Staal and Jesper Fast scored a pair of goals early in the third period to help the Carolina Hurricanes beat the Detroit Red Wings 5-2.

Andrei Svechnikov, Martin Necas and Nino Niederreiter also scored for the Hurricanes. The game was tied at 2-all before Carolina scored three times in the final period.

It was Carolina’s first game in front of limited fans after the state eased public-gathering restrictions last week.

Filip Zadina scored twice for the Red Wings, who led 2-1 until late in the second period.
