NHL: Carolina 6, Toronto 1

Jan. 9, 2014 at 9:49 PM   |   Comments

RALEIGH, N.C., Jan. 9 (UPI) -- Patrick Dwyer finished off a three-goal Carolina first period Thursday that propelled the Hurricanes to their fifth straight win -- 6-1 over Toronto.

Carolina had won no more than three consecutive games this season before embarking on its current run of success. The first four victories in the streak were all decided by one goal and two of them came in overtime.

This one turned out to be a one-sided contest after Zach Boychuk, Jeff Skinner and Dwyer all scored in the opening period to give the Hurricanes a 3-1 lead.

John-Michael Liles produced the only goal of the middle period, Jordan Staal scored 25 seconds into the third and Elias Lindholm added a power-play tally with 1:09 to play.

Carolina goaltender Anton Khudobin appeared in his seventh game of the season and ran his record to 6-0-0 by making 25 saves. The only goal he allowed came from Joffrey Lupul on a deflection in the first period.

James Reimer surrendered all six goals on 35 shots in what was Toronto's third straight loss.
