The Hurricanes offense exploded Tuesday night for a 5-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers to snap a five game skid. Led by rookie Sebastian Aho’s first career hat trick, the Hurricanes jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first period and went ahead 4-0 after Aho’s third goal in the second period.
If it ain’t broke don’t fix it, right? Coach Bill Peters announced the team will roll with the same lines from the Flyers game.
Jeff Skinner—Derek Ryan—Lee Stempniak
Brock McGinn—Victor Rask—Teuvo Teravainen
Sebastian Aho—Jordan Staal—Elias Lindholm
Joakim Nordstrom—Jay McClement—Viktor Stalberg
Ron Hainsey—Justin Faulk
Jaccob Slavin—Brett Pesce
Noah Hanifin—Klas Dahlbeck
Scratches: Ryan Murphy, Ty Rattie, Matt Tennyson
Cam Ward did leave today’s morning skate a little early. Peters had no update on his status.
