Jordan Staal Scores Hat Trick in Hurricanes’ 5-2 Win over Ducks

Fresh off of a tough last-minute loss to the New York Islanders on Friday night, the Carolina Hurricanes looked to bounce back against the playoff-eliminated Anaheim Ducks on Sunday.

It was a wild 60 minutes of hockey, particularly in the opening 40, but the Hurricanes took care of business and took down the Ducks by a final score of 5-2.

Defense was optional in the opening period.

Just 1:17 into the game, the Hurricanes opened the scoring by way of an Andrei Svechnikov deflection in the slot that bounced its way by John Gibson.
