Hurricanes beat Bruins, catch them for second in East

Hurricanes, Bruins

The Carolina Hurricanes netted two goals in the second period and two more in the third en route to a 4-1 win over the host Boston Bruins in Tuesday night’s battle of Eastern Conference playoff contenders.

Andrei Svechnikov had a goal and an assist to pace Carolina (50-22-7, 107 points), which used its third straight win to move into a tie for second place in the conference standings with Boston.

Teuvo Teravainen, Jake Guentzel and Seth Jarvis also found the back of the net, and Jaccob Slavin recorded two assists to round out the Hurricanes’ offense.

Pyotr Kochetkov stopped 22 shots in Carolina’s net.

Charlie McAvoy scored the lone goal and Jeremy Swayman made 22 saves for the Bruins (46-18-15, 107 points).

Carolina had a 26-23 shot advantage and killed off three Boston power plays, while scoring a short-handed goal of its own.

The game was scoreless until 10:55 of the second period. Svechnikov took the puck out of the right corner and pulled off a wraparound “Michigan” goal by stuffing it inside the top left of Swayman’s net.

Then Teravainen got the last touch on a bounding puck at the net front to double the Hurricanes’ advantage at 13:05. After Slavin took a shot from above the left circle, the puck bounced back to the top of the crease where Svechnikov got it to Teravainen to redirect five-hole on the Boston netminder.

The hosts were able to cut their deficit in half with 3:04 left before the second intermission as McAvoy ripped a one-timer past Kochetkov from the left circle. It was the Boston defenseman’s second goal in as many games.

Another fortuitous bounce going Carolina’s way increased the score to 3-1 at 10:14 of the third as Guentzel’s shot from the left crease bounced in off Swayman following Pavel Zacha’s attempted clear.

Jarvis rushed up the left wing and followed up his own initial shot on a short-handed breakaway, making it a 4-1 Hurricanes lead at 13:22.

A physical first period ended without a goal after Carolina’s first shot by Martin Necas took an awkward bounce past Swayman, but the score was called back for not completely crossing the goal line.
