— Carolina Hurricanes (@NHLCanes) October 18, 2017
Led by Teuvo Teravainen and Jordan Staal, the Carolina Hurricanes’ offense broke through in a 5-3 victory over the Edmonton Oilers.
Teravainen scored two goals in the first period and Jordan Staal recorded a four-point night (1g, 3a) in the Canes’ second win of the season.
Three weeks ago in this building, Teravainen scored a pair of goals to help the Canes top the Oilers 6-2 in an exhibition match.
Tonight in his 200th NHL game, Teravainen scored his first two goals of the season in the first five minutes to give his team an early 2-0 lead.
Justin Williams hit Jaccob Slavin with a stretch pass out of the defensive zone, and the Canes were off on a 2-on-1 rush. Slavin dished to Teravainen, who settled the puck and beat Laurent Brossoit blocker side for his first goal of the season just 20 seconds into the game.
Then, on the Canes’ second power play of the game, Teravainen found the puck on his stick after a Justin Faulk point shot redirected on its way to the net. Teravainen made no mistake and buried the shot.
