Ryan Kesler has 2 goals to send Canucks to 3-2 victory over Hurricanes

RALEIGH, N.C. - Ryan Kesler scored two goals to lead the Vancouver Canucks to a 3-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Sunday.

Tom Sestito also scored for the Canucks and Jason Garrison had two assists. Backup goalie Eddie Lack made 29 saves to help Vancouver pick up its third win in its past 11 games.

Kesler's second goal capped a stretch where the teams combined to score three goals in 37 seconds.

Jordan Staal and Nathan Gerbe scored for Carolina. Cam Ward made 27 saves.

The Hurricanes squandered six power-play opportunities against the NHL's best penalty-killing unit and have lost six of their past eight games.

Quote of the Day

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.

— Coyotes GM Don Maloney on defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson
