The Carolina Hurricanes could not extend their winning streak against the Minnesota Wild, but were able to earn a point in the shootout as they lost, 3-2 Saturday night in Raleigh.
Jason Pominville scored the first goal of the game and the game-winner in the shootout to lead the Wild to their 10th win of the season.
The Czech Republic native slid the puck under Harding’s pad to give the Hurricanes’ a 2-1 lead.
In the third period and overtime, the Canes had their best chances to score, but could not bury one and had to settle for a shootout loss and only one point.
The first two periods were a back-and-forth affair for the most part with neither team controlling play, but a decent amount of chances for both teams.
Peters had another strong game making 28 saves. The two goals he did allow were difficult to stop and were not his fault at all.
The offense had a strong game, even if the two goals were fluke goals. They had a few great chances in the final 25 minutes, but just couldn’t put the puck in the net.
Despite not gaining a win, this is another game to build on. The Hurricanes played strong in all areas of the ice, but couldn’t get the game-winner in regulation.
