Watch: Noah Hanifin Scores the Opening Goal in Boston

Hanifin continues to dice up his hometown team, gives the Hurricanes a 1-0 lead.

NHL: Carolina Hurricanes at Toronto Maple Leafs Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports

Following an unsuccessful 3-on-0 rush, the Carolina Hurricanes reset in the offensive zone and, of course, the hometown kid got the road team on the board first.

A beautiful stick check at his own blue line started the offensive rush, and Noah Hanifin netted his second goal of the season thanks to a good shot and a great screen in front by Lee Stempniak.

Jeff Skinner (11) and Derek Ryan (2) got the assists on the goal.
