Raleigh, NC (Sports Network) - Eric Staal recorded his 13th career hat trick
and Jeff Skinner added two more goals, as the Carolina Hurricanes doubled up
the Buffalo Sabres, 6-3, at PNC Arena.
Justin Faulk added a short-handed goal in Carolina's first win after dropping
its first two contests by a combined 9-2 score. Cam Ward made 30 saves to pick
up the victory.
Jason Pominville netted two goals for the Sabres, while Jhonas Enroth,
starting in place of Ryan Miller, gave up five goals on 37 shots.
Miller was between the pipes in Buffalo's first two wins of the season and
will likely be in net in the back end of this home-and-home set on Friday.
