Clark Bishop added his first-career NHL goal for the Hurricanes, while Justin Williams chipped in a third period goal in their 13th win of the season. It was a rare win at the Honda Center for the Hurricanes, as they have won just two games in Anaheim in the past nine years. It was also a rare win for their goaltender, Petr Mrazek, who recorded his first win since October 26th. He finished with 26 saves, giving his team 30 points on the season.
Sebastian Aho's empty-net tally sealed the win for the Canes, who sit four points behind the Columbus Blue Jackets for second place. They got this win to end their three-game road trip despite playing without the likes of Michael Ferland, Jordan Staal, and their starting goaltender, Curtis McElhinney.
The Ducks had won seven of their past eight games, but fell in regulation for the 11th time this season, keeping them in second place in the Pacific Division with 35 points. Jakob Silfverberg recorded his 100th career goal, but his team allowed three third-period goals to end their hot streak. They will look to get back on track Sunday night when they host the New Jersey Devils. The Hurricanes will finally return home on Tuesday night against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
