’Canes’ Teravainen scores 3
Union grad Gostisbehere has goal, two assists in 1st home game since trade
RALEIGH, N.C. —Teuvo Teravainen had three goals, recent acquisition and Union College alum Shayne Gostisbehere scored in his first Carolina home game and the Hurricanes beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 6-0 on Sunday.
Jesperi Kotkaniemi had a goal and four assists and Andrei Svechnikov also scored for the Hurricanes, who’ve won 14 of their past 17 games.
Martin Necas added three assists and Gostisbehere added two assists.
“I feel like I can always play better, never perfect,” Teravainen said.
Frederik Andersen made 14 saves for his first shutout of the season and 24th of his career. Carolina went 4 for 5 on the power play and outshot Tampa Bay 38-14.
“I’m just happy to get on board this train and hopefully keep it rolling,” Gostisbehere said.
The Lightning lost for the fifth game in a row (0-4-1) and generated little offense, going without a shot on goal in the second period.
Teravainen’s second career hat trick was secured with 8:57 remaining with his 10th goal of the season.
Gostisbehere, who lead Union College to the 2014 NCAA Championship while being named most outstanding player, was involved in the scoring on three of Carolina’s four power-play goals.
His 12th goal of the season was his second with the Hurricanes.
Gostisbehere, a defenseman who was in his second game since being acquired in Wednesday’s trade from the Arizona Coyotes, has four points with his new team.
“That’s what we needed, to have a quarterback,” Hurricanes coach Rod Brind’amour said of the power play. “We use two units most of the time, so having two guys at the moment, that helps.”
Flyers 3, Red Wings 1: Nicolas Deslauriers, Noah Cates and Scott Laughton scored goals for Philadelphia and Carter Hart stopped 24 shots. The Flyers won for just the second time since early February. David Perron scored his 16th goal for the Red Wings early in the first for a 1-0 lead. Laughton scored an empty-netter in the final minutes in his 500th NHL game.
Golden Knights 4, Canadiens 3: Ivan Barbashev scored twice and the Vegas defeated Montreal at home. Barbashev’s goals were his first with the Knights since being acquired on Feb. 26 in a trade with St. Louis.
