The Carolina Hurricanes own a 3-2 lead in their Stanley Cup second-round series following a 3-1 victory over the New York Rangers. The Canes won with special teams as Vincent Trochek scored short-handed and Teuvo Teravainen added a rare power-play goal for Carolina, which has struggled with the man advantage. Andrei Svechnikov also scored, beating Igor Shesterkin with a backhander on a breakaway midway through the third period.
Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl have carried the Edmonton Oilers to a 5-4 overtime victory at Calgary and a berth in the NHL’s Western Conference finals. McDavid provided the series clincher at 5:03 of the extra season, taking a pass from Draisaitl for his seventh goal of the postseason. Draisaitl had four assists and finished with 17 points in the series, scoring at least three points in all five games.
