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.
