Gold: Canes fall in final seconds to Caps

Gold: Canes fall in final seconds to Caps”

He then added a goal of his own in the second frame to tie the game at two. Washington defeated Carolina 4-3.

The Hurricanes played their first home game since the sale of the team to Dallas billionaire Tom Dundon became official.

Jay Beagle scored with 1.3 seconds remaining and the Washington Capitals rallied to beat the Carolina Hurricanes 4-3 on Friday night.

It was a loss that left a sour - and bloodied - taste in the Hurricanes' collective mouth. Staal was cut on his lip, but no call was made.

The Carolina Hurricanes learned a tough lesson over the past 1½ weeks: No lead is safe on home ice against the Washington Capitals. Nicklas Backstrom swiped the puck from Canes forward Brock McGinn and found Beagle open for the score, handing the Canes what had to be a brutal loss. Backstrom zipped the puck to the goal mouth and Jay Beagle knocked it in for the victor with 1.3 seconds remaining.

"It was a stick in the face in front of (the ref) and he chose not to call it", Staal said.

Ward made 23 saves - including a tumbling gem midway through the third to rob Evgeny Kuznetsov - for Carolina, which was down a handful of regulars for the rematch of their 3-1 victory Thursday night.

Carolina appeared headed for a sweep of the back-to-back series, but T.J. Oshie pressured All-Star Noah Hanifin into a turnover behind the net and Connolly snapped the loose puck between Cam Ward's legs.

NOTES: Aho has goals in three straight games, and Staal has points in four straight. Over is 4-0-1 in the last 5 meetings and Hurricanes are 0-6 in the last 6 meetings in Washington and Hurricanes are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings. However expect him to play a big role in the outcome of the game in his first game back.

"We had the opportunity to put a game away, we gave up ... two in the last three minutes", Carolina coach Bill Peters said.

While the Caps were using all of their power play time to score, Carolina struck quickly again on their second chance.

Aho got his second point of the night when he one-timed a Justin Faulk pass at the point just five seconds into the man advantage to make it 2-2 at 8:50 of the second.

Staal said there was no explanation from the ref, saying, "He didn't want to talk to me tonight". Eller's four-game goals streak is the team's longest of the season. Stempniak played on a line with center Lucas Wallmark and Skinner and was effective.

"It's never a good feeling to lose", Skinner said. "It kind of gets that little bit of hatred and little bit of rivalry going".

"It sucks right now, but it's something you can learn from, I think", he added. "We'll get focused for the next game and be ready for that challenge". "You obviously don't like the feeling".
