They Said It: Brind’Amour, Niederreiter, Aho on afternoon loss to Caps

The Carolina Hurricanes’ return to PNC Arena Sunday afternoon didn’t go as they would have hoped, as the Canes dropped a physical contest to the rival Washington Capitals, 4-2.

After a really strong opening period, the Canes faltered in the second, letting Washington take a 2-0 lead. Carolina battled back, as Jesperi Kotkaniemi and Nino Niederreiter tallied in the third to tie the game, but couldn’t hold on, with Washington scoring on the power play late.

Following the loss, head coach Rod Brind’Amour, Niederreiter and Sebastian Aho spoke with members of the media.
