Teravainen's hat trick helps Canes rout Lightning 6-0
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Teuvo Teravainen had three goals, recent acquisition Shayne Gostisbehere scored in his first Carolina home game and the Hurricanes beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 6-0 on Sunday.
Jesperi Kotkaniemi had a goal and four assists and Andrei Svechnikov also scored for the Hurricanes, who’ve won 14 of their past 17 games. Martin Necas added three assists and Gostisbehere added two assists.
Frederik Andersen made 14 saves for his first shutout of the season and 24th of his career. Carolina went 4 for 5 on the power play and outshot Tampa Bay 38-14.
The Lightning lost for the fifth game in a row (0-4-1) and generated little offense, going without a shot on goal in the second period. Andrei Vasilevskiy had 32 saves.
Teravainen’s second career hat trick was secured with 8:57 remaining with his 10th goal of the season.
Gostisbehere was involved in the scoring on three of Carolina’s four power-play goals. His 12th goal of the season was his second with the Hurricanes.
Gostisbehere, a defenseman who was in his second game since being acquired in Wednesday’s trade from the Arizona Coyotes, has four points with his new team.
The Lightning had four shots on goal midway through the game. Shortly after that juncture, Nikita Kucherov, who had two of the shots, left because he was struck in the face by the puck. He later returned.
It was the sixth time in Carolina franchise history that an opponent failed to record a shot on goal in a period … Lightning center Brayden Point’s seven-game goals streak ended. … Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman left barely more than a minute into the second period with an injury.
Lightning: Home vs. Philadelphia on Tuesday.
Hurricanes: At Montreal on Tuesday.
