Hurricanes defeat Red Wings, extend point streak to nine


RALEIGH, N.C. — Teuvo Teravainen had a goal and an assist, and the Carolina Hurricanes extended their point streak to nine games with a 3-1 win against the Detroit Red Wings at PNC Arena on Thursday.

Teravainen was playing in his second game after missing 25 because of a concussion.

Sebastian Aho had two assists, and James Reimer made 16 saves for the Hurricanes (33-10-7), who are 6-0-3 during their streak.

Jakub Vrana scored, and Jonathan Bernier made 29 saves for the Red Wings (17-26-9).

Brady Skjei put Carolina ahead 1-0 at 4:40 of the second period. Aho waited for Skjei to gain the offensive blue line before passing to the unmarked defenseman, who beat Bernier over his glove from the high slot. 

Skjei was making his return to the lineup after missing four games with a concussion.

Warren Foegele pushed the lead to 2-0 at 13:29. He took a backhand feed from Brett Pesce before scoring off his own rebound in the crease.

After Aho couldn’t handle a pass from Pesce, Vrana skated through the slot and faked his forehand before lifting a backhand over Reimer’s glove to cut it to 2-1 at 17:31.

Teravainen made it 3-1 at 9:48 of the third period when he forced a turnover in Detroit’s zone, then received a no-look pass from Aho and beat Bernier five-hole.
