Staal scores twice and Hurricanes beat Flyers 6-5 in shootout

PHILADELPHIA - Jordan Staal scored twice in regulation and had the only goal in the shootout to lead the Carolina Hurricanes to a 6-5 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers in regular-season finale Sunday.

Jeff Skinner added a pair of goals for the Hurricanes, who finish the season in seventh place in the Metropolitan Division, outside of the playoff picture.

Wayne Simmonds scored twice for the Flyers, who had already wrapped up third place in the Metropolitan Division and a date with the New York Rangers in the first round of the playoffs later this week.

Cal Heeter made 33 saves in his NHL debut for the Flyers, before stopping one of two shots in the shootout.

Hurricanes goaltender Anton Khudobin made 39 saves and stopped all three of shots in the shootout.

Quote of the Day

I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
