Teravainen records a hat trick as Carolina extends Tampa Bay’s skid to five


Teuvo Teravainen had three goals, recent acquisitio­n Shayne Gostisbehe­re scored in his first Carolina home game, and the Hurricanes beat the Tampa Bay Lightning, 6-0, on Sunday in Raleigh, N.C.

Jesperi Kotkaniemi had a goal and four assists and Andrei Svechnikov also scored for the Hurricanes, who have won 14 of their past 17 games. Martin Necas added three assists, and Gostisbehe­re had 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 the 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. Andrei Vasilevski­y had 32 saves.

“No one is happy about what has gone on here the last little bit,” Lightning captain Steven Stamkos said. “Our standards are obviously very high in the room with the success that we’ve had. But you know what, there’s going to be adverse times in the season. You’d much rather go through it now than in a month’s time.”

Teravainen’s second career hat trick was secured with 8:57 remaining with his 10th goal of the season.

The Lightning had four shots on goal midway through the game. Shortly after that juncture, Nikita Kucherov, who had two of the shots, left because he was struck in the face by a puck. He later returned.
