Hurricanes Beat Rangers 4-3

Victor Rask scored the go-ahead goal with 10:54 left, and the Hurricanes rallied to beat the Rangers 4-3 on Thursday night in former captain Eric Staal's return to his old home arena.

Jeff Skinner, Patrick Brown and Justin Faulk also scored for the Hurricanes, who trailed 3-2 after two periods. Ryan Murphy had two assists and Cam Ward made 24 saves.

Chris Kreider, Mats Zuccarello and Rick Nash scored for New York and Derek Stepan had two assists during a three-goal second. Henrik Lundqvist finished with 24 saves for the Rangers, who fell to 27-2-2 when leading after two.

Rask's winner off a rebound came after Faulk reached up to keep the puck in the offensive zone. The Rangers challenged that the Carolina defenseman was offside but the officials determined the video review was inconclusive, allowing the goal to stand.
