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

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
