REVIEW: SAN JOSE 3, HURRICANES 2

by Staff Writer / Carolina Hurricanes
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Martin Gelinas scored his fourth goal of the season and extended his point streak to six games when he re-directed a Sandis Ozolinsh shot past San Jose rookie goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff on the power play. Gelinas' goal tied the game 1-1 at the 9:53 mark of period two.

San Jose jumped back to a 2-1 lead at 2:10 of the third but the lead didn't last long. Bates Battaglia wrestled the puck away from the San Jose defense behind the net five minutes later and scored his second of the season on a wraparound.

San Jose scored the game-winning goal at 10:08 of the third period, shorthanded.

Defenseman Marek Malik played in his first game of the season for Carolina after missing the opening six with whiplash... Ozolinsh is a team-worst minus-4 for Carolina... Gelinas didn't score his eighth point last season until the 36th game of the season.

POST-GAME QUOTES
CAROLINA HURRICANES vs. SAN JOSE SHARKS
OCTOBER 24, 2000

CAROLINA HEAD COACH PAUL MAURICE:

On the game:
“We had a slow start to what was otherwise a pretty great game. We’re aware of coming off the road sometimes, your first time being back you get out of the gate a little slow and we did for I’d say the first 11 minutes in the first period and the we picked it up a notch. We battled strong through two and you know again, Gelinas, continuing his scoring ways, played well, of course tonight on a power play goal and Bates did some good work on the goal down low. I don’t think there’s any question that the turning points of the game are in the special teams right now, for us and giving up those goal shorthanded – not scoring on the power play is one thing and once your to the point of giving up goals, it’s nerve-racking.”

On injured players:
“We’re missing a few of the guys on the back end that help keep guys like Ozolinsh fresh. As many minutes as he has to play he’s not as effective on the back end as we’d like him to be.”

SAN JOSE ASSISTANT COACH RICH PRESTON:

On game-winning goal:
“I think it was an excellent read by Strum. He saw Damphousse… Damphousse was excellent tonight – the way he held onto the puck. It was a great play by Damphousse – Strum read it and just took off and made goal.”

On Nabokov’s injury:
“He showed a lot tonight, I’ll tell you. He took a shot to the head, got stitches and came back on the ice and said, ‘I’m going back on net.’ He didn’t even come to the bench – that’s good to see. He was good tonight.”

On long road trip:
“We’ve fought through a lot of adversity on the road in the third period – four straight penalties against us and we were down five-on-three at the end of the game. The guys really battled, battled, battled and whatever it took – they blocked shots and it was a gritty win.”
