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

My job was to get that puck and put it on net, and his job was not letting me do it. I got the best of that, but that game's over and to be honest I already forgot about it.
