Teravainen, Hurricanes rip Stars 5-1

14 November 2017

Jordan Staal assisted on four goals and Sebastian Aho scored his first of the season as Carolina wasted Dallas 5-1. Carolina defeated the Dallas Stars 5-1.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) Teuvo Teravainen had a natural hat trick in the third period and an assist Monday night, leading the Carolina Hurricanes to a 5-1 victory over the Dallas Stars.

With two goals inside the first seven minutes of the period already to his name, Teravainen added his third of the night before halfway mark of the final frame. With the attention of three Stars players, Staal slipped a pass to Teravainen, who made no mistake in hammering a one-timer past Bishop. "But we've been talking about shooting more ... pucks and being around the net".

"That's just a byproduct of guys wanting to do too much, right?"

"I like the fact that when we scored on the power play it gave us momentum, it gave us life, it energized our bench", Peters said. "We've tightened up and if we can get the power play going on a consistent basis, I think it's coming in the right direction".

Teravainen's first goal was Carolina's first power-play score in six games. "It's costing us in some situations where we need a bit of a jump, and we're not getting it". Staal had four assists and no goals. It was a shortened man advantage for the Stars, as Canes forward Justin Williams went to the box during a Carolina power play.

However, just like the Hurricanes have been searching for consistency, Aho had been looking for the back of the net.

There's no better time to get your first career hat trick than in the third period of a deadlocked game. It was good for (Aho) to get one. Aho opened up Bishop's pads with a deke and slid the puck in. Captain Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin (two goals, three assists in the last five contests) are tied for second on the team with 16 points while Alexander Radulov is next with 14 as he carries a seven-game point streak into the contest against Carolina. It was exciting when (Aho) finally scored a goal, and I felt good for him. "He scored a goal finally, and past year was the same thing - he didn't score in a lot of games at the start".

The Canes are expecting more from him this season.

Four minutes later, the Stars evened things on the power play.

But that was all the offense the Stars would muster.

Jeff Skinner scored the other Carolina goal in the closing seconds.

"You only have a short-term memory with the bad stuff; the good stuff you remember and keep it rolling, keep the confidence going", Darling said.

"It's disappointing", Dallas coach Ken Hitchcock said. I don't want to put this behind us. "I want us to remember this and I was us to grow from it".
