Watch: Jeff Skinner Refuses to Give Up, Gets the Hurricanes on the Board

Skinner didn’t miss a beat after sitting out due to injury in Detroit on Tuesday.

The New York Rangers hopped out to an early lead against the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday night, but the home team responded moments later.

Jeff Skinner relentlessly pressured Henrik Lundqvist and the Rangers until he eventually beat the Swedish goalie top shelf.

Noah Hanifin and Victor Rask got the assists on the goal. It’s Skinner’s third goal of the season and his seventh point in six games played.

Rask extends his point-streak to seven games with an assist and Hanifin now has a team-leading six assists on the young season.
