17:00 second period; Canucks 3, Hurricanes 2: In less than two minutes of play, the Hurricanes scored twice and the Canucks once to make it 3-2 Vancouver in the second period.

3:45 first period; Canucks 2, Hurricanes 0: Jason Garrison scored to extend the Canucks lead to 2-0.

Ryan Kesler scored a power play goal on a 9 foot wristshot to put the Canucks up 1-0 early.


The Hurricanes and Canucks on Sunday will play the first of a two-game season series (1 p.m. ET, FOX Sports Carolinas, 99.9FM The Fan).

The teams will square off on Dec. 9 in Vancouver, and will play multiple times in a season for the first time since the 2001-02 campaign.

The Canucks will play the second game of a back-to-back set, and their third game in four days. They defeated the Senators in Ottawa on Thursday, 5-2, and will play the Rangers in New York on Saturday.

The Hurricanes are coming off a 5-2 defeat to New Jersey at home on Friday.

Carolina trails the Canucks all-time, 25-27-12-1 (65), including 15-12-5 (32) at home and 10-15-7-1 (33) on the road.

Vancouver has won seven of the last 10 meetings against Carolina but the Hurricanes have won the last three meetings between the teams at PNC Arena.

    Accountability is more than a noun....it's a verb. Time to put some teeth in that verb for everyone on that team!

    Time to dump salary. Start with the "captain" that cannot find the back of the net.

    Tripp was so excited that the Staals finally did something...but the lead didn't even last a minute. Oh well.

    Why is 99.9 doing the hurricanes game when the Panthers are playing? Sorry to inform you Capital Broadcasting, but when it comes to Panther football nobody cares about the hurricanes.
