The Calgary Flames didn’t play a perfect 60 minutes of hockey on Sunday afternoon in Raleigh, North Carolina. But they got what they needed from their special teams units en route to a 4-3 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes.
The Hurricanes got out to an early lead off a puck-handling gaffe by TJ Brodie in the defensive zone. Brodie attempted a cross-slot outlet pass from the corner of the defensive zone. That puck was intercepted by Sebastian Aho and after some quick passing Teuvo Teravainen put the puck past David Rittich to make it 1-0 Carolina.
