Game 2- (CAR leads series 2-0)

Game Recap:

Tonight’s game two matchup of the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs features the New York Rangers against the Carolina Hurricanes. This game was very low scoring affair for the most part. Both teams were very even with each other as we saw a scoreless first period.

We finally saw one of these two teams get on the scoreboard and it was the Carolina Hurricanes. Former Ranger Brendan Smith scored a shorthanded goal against his old team as he was fed a nice pass from Sebastian Aho to the front of the net and redirect the puck into the back of the net to give Carolina a 1-0 lead. Smith’s goal would be the only one of the second period.

Period three was just as quiet as the other two. Carolina did a great job at shutting down the Rangers and really limited their offensive chances despite the Rangers trying to get the equalizer late with the goalie pulled. In fact, Sebastian Aho was able to seal the victory for the Hurricanes as he intercepted the puck by the blue line, and the fired it into the back of the net. The Carolina Hurricanes went into win by a final score of 2-0 and extend their series lead to two games.
