Three nights after dropping a disappointing game in Brooklyn, the Carolina Hurricanes returned the favor in a 4-2 win over the New York Islanders.
Teuvo Teravainen (2g, 1a) and Sebastian Aho (1g, 2a) each had three-point nights, and Cam Ward made 27 saves in the Canes' fifth win in their last seven games.
"It was a good weekend. I liked the way we played today," head coach Bill Peters said. "I liked the way we started. That's part of what we like to do and part of our foundation. We definitely did that today."
"We knew it was going to be a tough test. We were real solid against Buffalo. Back-to-backs can really test you. I thought our guys came out in the first period and gave us some insurance getting the lead," Ward said. "All in all, we can be happy with the way the weekend went."
Here are five takeaways from tonight's Metropolitan Division match-up.
