After going down 1-0 on an early Cam Atkinson goal, the Carolina Hurricanes got going with two goals in a span of less than three minutes.

First up, Jeff Skinner took advantage of a bad turnover in the slot and wired home a shot over Anton Forsberg’s glove at 2:01.

2:56 later, Derek Ryan cleaned up a rebound after Victor Rask did some yeoman’s work along the boards to keep the play alive.
