Watch: Bryan Bickell Scores First Goal with the Carolina Hurricanes

We thought it might be a hat trick for Jeff Skinner, but instead, it’s Bryan Bickell scoring his first as a Hurricane.

In the dying seconds of period number two, the Carolina Hurricanes regained their lead over the New York Rangers.

The home crowd thought it was Jeff Skinner’s third goal of the night, but it was Bryan Bickell whose jersey grazed the puck as it went flying by over the shoulder of Henrik Lundqvist.

It’s Bickell’s first goal as a member of the Carolina Hurricanes. Skinner picked up his third point of the night with the assist. He now has nine points in six games played this season.

Victor Rask picked up his second point of the night with the secondary assist on the goal.
