"Jeff Skinner scored and Cam Ward made 18 saves for the Hurricanes, Who will miss the playoffs for the ninth straight year " the longest active postseason drought in the NHL.

Lundqvist"s third victory against Carolina this season helped the Rangers finish off a sweep in the series. New York won the first three games by a combined 17-5, But this was Ward"s first start of the season against them. Carolina"s previous three losses came with Scott Darling in net.

"You"ve just got to stick to your system, " defenseman Brady Skjei said. "We felt confident that we could kill it off, And when it comes down to 6-on-4 [url=http://www. Officialcoyotes. Com/authentic-adidas-alex-goligoski-jersey]Womens Alex Goligoski Jersey[/url], You"ve got to keep it compact and just try to keep pucks to the outside. That was kind of our mindset, And a few good sticks by our guys and that clear at the end by (Mats Zuccarello) was huge. "Sproul scored first with 16:59 left in the second period. After Paul Carey dug the puck out of the corner, He found Sproul skating unimpeded between the circles and he ripped it past Ward for his first goal. Then, With Zibanejad in the penalty box for tripping, Jesper Fast led a rush and threaded a pass to Hayes for a short-handed goal with 6:37 left in the second. That put the Rangers " who entered 21-0-1 when leading after two periods " up 2-0 after 40 minutes. "The shorty"s the game-winner, Right? " Carolina coach Bill Peters asked rhetorically. "That"s the difference in the hockey game. "NOTES: Sproul"s goal left D Rob O"Gara as the only Rangers skater in the lineup without at least one goal on the season.
