Hurricanes win over Flyers because of Pesce's OT goal

Brett Pesce scored at 4:42 into overtime. Vincent Trocheck scored a goal and assisted, and the Hurricanes of the Metropolitan Division, which led the league, defeated the Philadelphia Flyers 3-3 on Monday.

The Hurricanes also won with Teuvo Teravainen and Nino Niederreiter scoring for them. They won their third consecutive game in just four days, while playing their third contest in a row.

Rod Brind'Amour, Carolina coach, said that although it wasn't a great match for us, you're never going to have beautiful games every single night. You can see that we didn't have it. It says a lot about the men that they found a way.

At the end of the five-minute 3-on-3, the game looked headed for a shootout. Trocheck's pass on the 2-on-1 was canceled by Pesce who shot high above Martin Jones for his fourth win of the season.

Pesce stated, "It's an enjoyable feeling, for certain."

Frederik Andersen, Hurricanes goalie, made 38 saves, including a great save on Cam Atkinson late in overtime.

"Surprised? No. But are you thankful? "Yes," Carolina's Jaccob said. "It would be nice to have him back there."

Oskar Lindblom, Patrick Brown, Gerry Mayhew and Patrick Brown scored goals for the Flyers. Philadelphia lost its fifth consecutive home game and its 18th in 20.

After Thursday's 5-3 defeat to Washington, Philadelphia conceded three goals in the final minute. This was the second consecutive close loss against an Eastern Conference team of top-tier.

Lindblom stated, "I believe it's been this lately." "Some games we play well and have a chance of winning, but we always find a way for us to lose. We need to win. This is the only thing that matters in this game.

Trocheck scored his 14th season win with 12:45 remaining in regulation. He hit a backhand from close to the goal line to give the Hurricanes the lead 3-2. With 4:53 remaining in the third, the Flyers tied it at 3. Travis Konecny's shot was deflected off Lindblom’s skate and passed Andersen.

Brown made it 2-2 in his first game since Jan. 8, when he sustained a knee injury. There was 14:41 remaining in the third. Isaac Ratcliffe set the goal by a wraparound pass to Brown from the one side of his crease.

In a disappointing first period, the Canes managed only two shots. The game ended in a draw as the Flyers failed to convert any of their 11 shots.

Brind'Amour stated that "We were terrible to begin." "You could see that we didn't have much energy or juice. But these guys are very hungry."

Carolina started to pick up its game in second period. Jesper Fast sent a backhand down the boards towards the back of net, but it was intercepted by the puck on the side boards.

Niederreiter was the only one there, pushing the puck in for his 15th goal of the season just 24 seconds into each period.

Philadelphia had its own luck when it tied the contest 35 seconds later. Mayhew's attempt to pass to the crease was deflected off of the stick by Carolina's Sebastian Aho, past Andersen. Mayhew scored the third goal in his second game, and he's back in the lineup due to a series of Flyers injuries.

Teravainen's points streak was extended to six consecutive games. He finished the period with 7:47 remaining. After Andrei Svechnikov's good pass, Teravainen completed from close range. Aho scored his 53rd team-leading point and received an assist on the play.


Hurricanes: D Brendan Smith was on the team, but didn't participate in the game. Smith was injured when a puck went to his ear during Sunday's win at Pittsburgh, 4-3. Before the game, Brind'Amour stated that Smith was day to day and would be assessed when the team returns from Carolina on Tuesday. Tony DeAngelo sustained an upper-body injury during the second period, and didn't make it back.

Flyers: G Carter Hart, who was suffering from an eye infection, was scratched for the game. D Rasmus Ristolainen was able to return to the lineup following a three-game absence due to an injury to the upper-body.


Hurricanes: Columbus will host on Friday night.

Flyers: St. Louis hosts the Flyers on Tuesday night.
