RALEIGH, N.C. — Petr Mrazek made 32 saves for the Carolina Hurricanes in a 3-0 win against the Arizona Coyotes at PNC Arena on Friday.
Warren Foegele, Lucas Wallmark and Martin Necas scored for the Hurricanes (26-16-2), who have won two in a row.
The Coyotes (25-18-4) have lost two in a row after a four-game winning streak. Adin Hill made one save playing the third period relief of Antti Raanta, who made 25 saves in two periods before leaving with a lower-body injury.
Foegele gave the Hurricanes a 1-0 lead at 14:20 of the first period. Andrei Svechnikov worked away from two defenders behind the Arizona net and passed to Foegele for a wrist shot in the slot.
Wallmark redirected Dougie Hamilton‘s wrist shot off Raanta’s glove to give the Hurricanes a 2-0 lead at 18:47 of the second period.
Necas extended the lead to 3-0 when he skated from the top of the left face-off circle and circled the net before lifting a backhand into open net with 10 seconds remaining in the second.
Raanta was playing for the first time since he sustained a lower-body injury in a 6-2 win against the Philadelphia Flyers last Saturday.
