by Michael Smith @MSmithCanes / CarolinaHurricanes.com

Analysis from New Jersey

→ The Carolina Hurricanes capped an incredibly successful four-game road trip with a 3-1 win over the New Jersey Devils. Jeff Skinner tallied the game-winning goal, Sebastian Aho added a pair and Eddie Lack made 26 saves as the Hurricanes extended their point streak to 10 games (7-0-3).

"It's a big win for us late in the road trip. It was a tight game up until the end. Everyone contributed again. All four lines were going," Skinner said. "After the second goal we got a huge kill by the PK, and Eddie made some huge stops coming down the stretch. We were able to put it away with Fishy with a big goal for us. It's a big win, and now we've got to go home and follow this up."

"We've got some good confidence," Aho said. "We have lots of players who are playing good right now, and we have two great goalkeepers who give us a chance to win every night."

Analysis from Montreal

→ Spurred by two goals off the stick of Lee Stempniak, the Carolina Hurricanes topped the Montreal Canadiens, 4-1, and extended their point streak to nine games (6-0-3).

"We're just playing a complete game," Stempniak said. "We're not making mental mistakes, and we're working hard. I think there's some confidence to our game."
