REVIEW: BRUINS 4, HURRICANES 1

by Staff Writer / Carolina Hurricanes
BOSTON (AP) _ The Carolina Hurricanes (12-13-4-1), playing the second game of a back-to-back, home-away series, fell to the Boston Bruins tonight, 4-1 at Fleet Center.

The Hurricanes tied the game 1-1 with 2:19 left in the first when Kevin Hatcher's slap shot from the point deflected off Jeff O'Neill's skate past goalie Byron Dafoe. It was the fourth straight game O'Neill has scored a goal. Sami Kapanen's four game scoring streak came to a halt as he did not earn a point during the game.
