Watch: Jordan Staal Scores, Stares Down Family Nemesis Dion Phaneuf

Staal’s 12th of the year gave the Canes an early lead, and then he had a word for a close family friend.

The Carolina Hurricanes were flying out of the gate on Friday against the Senators, and Jordan Staal went full beast mode to give the home team a 1-0 lead.

Staal kept on the family tradition of not being very fond of defenseman Dion Phaneuf after he beat the veteran on the wrap around.

It’s Staal’s 12th of the season. Phil Di Giuseppe (3) and Brock McGinn (9) got the assists on the goal.
