The Carolina Hurricanes went into their best “shot suppression” mode as they defeated the Arizona Coyotes, 3-1 at the PNC Arena on Saturday night.
After allowing just three shots on goal in the second period, they did not allow a single shot on goal the entire third. They outshot the Coyotes, 39-11 for the game.
The home team fell behind 1-0 in the first but took over control of the game after that.
Martin Necas scored a powerplay goal to tie the game up eight minutes and change into the second. Jarvis and Burns picked up the assists.
While the Canes dominated play, they could not solve goalie Connor Ingram until late in the game.
With just 36 seconds left, Dmitri Orlov roofed in the game-winner on a beautiful move to the side of the net. Orlov, who has hit the crossbar or post with multiple shots previously, was certainly due.
To top things off, Jespar Fast scored again just 12 seconds later.
That makes three wins in a row for Carolina who will now take off about 10 days during the All Star break.
