RALEIGH, NC - The Devils were able to secure the lead in the third and then finished it off, downing the red hot Hurricanes 5-3 on their turf. P.K. Subban's 100th career NHL goal proved to be the winner, capping off a solid team win.

"That's a big win for us," said Subban. "And we're not surprised by the way we played today. We know that we can play with the best teams in the league and it's just finding that consistency and understanding that every play matters in these games, especially when you're playing against a team like Carolina and these really top teams in the league."
