WASHINGTON - The Carolina Hurricanes topped the Washington Capitals 4-1 to begin a three-game preseason road trip.

"I thought we got better as we went along. I thought we built a game, and I thought our third period was our best period," head coach Bill Peters said. "I thought our young guys settled down, started to play and show what they're all about in the third."
