New York Rangers v. Carolina Hurricanes
Game 5- (CAR leads series 3-2)
With the series tied at two, the New York Rangers and Carolina Hurricanes both look to take the series lead this evening with a win. It was a low shooting period for the Rangers (as would the rest of the evening) and the Hurricanes generating plenty of offensive chances. It would take until the midway point of the first period but, Carolina was the first ones on the board thanks to a shorthanded goal from Vincent Trocheck on a little 2 on 1 to give his team the lead. Mika Zabanejad towards the end of period got the equalizer on a quick draw play that led to a one timer goal to even the score up 1-1 and would stay that way until the next period.
Carolina showed they can score with the man advantage too and scored they did thanks to Teuvo Teravainen at the 9:47 mark of period two. Teravainen wouod bury a cross ice feed from Seth Jarvis to the left face off circle to beat Rangers goalie Igor Shesterkin to give Carolina their lead back. The Rangers since the Zabanejad goal were very inept offensively and not generating many shot or scoring chances at all. After two periods, the Hurricanes would take a 2-1 lead heading into the third and final period.
New York would remain inept offensively as they were in the second and carried the into the third period for them unfortunately. However, the Hurricanes were able to extend their lead to 3-1 thanks to a breakaway goal from Andrei Svechnikov to seal the victory for Carolina. Now the Hurricanes have a chance to eliminate the Rangers in Game 6 on Saturday or wind up play a series deciding seventh game.
