Williams’ shootout goal lifts Hurricanes past Canucks, 4-3

Williams’ shootout goal lifts Hurricanes past Canucks, 4-3”

The teams combined for only 13 shots in the third period. The latter of those successes was their most recent, as they triumphed to a 6-1 win.

Svechnikov's go-ahead goal in the third period came as he made a burst down the right side and passed three Vancouver players on the way to unloading the shot.

Hughes, the leader of the National Hockey League rookie points, added to his total with an assist at the opening goal of the game.

After they defeated the Vancouver Canucks 4-3 in a shootout, they were able to bring their fans at PNC Arena to their feet and join in on a timely celebration. In Friday's game, Williams registered his first assist of the season. It was unfortunate for Demko because he was the only reason the game moved beyond overtime. Unfortunately, for the Canucks things didn't play out that way.

The Hurricanes have gone 12-10-2 away from home. But Pettersson is too talented not to explode offensively so it seemed like a matter of time until that happened. He had played in two games before the break after coming out of an abbreviated retirement. James Reimer made 32 saves.

Hurricanes: 5-4-1, averaging 2.2 goals, 4.1 assists, 3.2 penalties and 6.7 penalty minutes while giving up two goals per game with a.930 save percentage.

Markstrom played Saturday, stopping 34 shots. Pettersson was lamenting that missed opportunity in his post-game media availability: 'I want that one back. The Canucks won just three of nine face-offs with the man-advantage which allowed Carolina to clear pucks and send the Canucks the length of the ice killing valuable time in the process. Carolina has converted on 21.5% of power-play opportunities, scoring 34 power-play goals.

Still, Carolina exited the opening 20 minutes down 1-0 after Pettersson benefitted from a bounce that ended up on his stick and into the open net just 4:25 into the game. David Pastrnak has seven goals and seven assists over the last 10 games for Boston. It wasn't. And it hasn't been very often over the past month. That takes the Swede's goal tally to 23 for the season, and he will be their leading attacking hope if they are to get a positive result against the Bruins.
