Watch: Derek Ryan Puts Carolina Ahead

Hooray, depth scoring!

NHL: Washington Capitals at Carolina Hurricanes James Guillory-USA TODAY Sports

The Carolina Hurricanes have gone up 1-0 at the end of the first period thanks to a goal from Derek Ryan (2) at 17:51 of the frame.

Assisting on the play were Andrej Nestrasil (4) and Justin Faulk (6). Nestrasil did good to draw both L.A. defenders to him in order to free up the lane for Ryan, who did the rest with a slick deke to open the scoring.
