NHL: Preseason-Carolina Hurricanes at Minnesota Wild Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

Derek Ryan capped off a flurry of Carolina Hurricanes’ goals with his first of the year to give them a 3-2 lead.

Jeff Skinner’s determination and footwork to help Ryan win the faceoff gained control for Carolina, and Ryan followed up Skinner’s subsequent net drive to put home the rebound. Skinner earned his 10th assist on the play.
