Brady Skjei scored a crucial power play goal with just over three minutes left, helping the Carolina Hurricanes secure a 4-3 victory over the New York Rangers. This win prevented the Hurricanes from being swept in Game 4 of the second-round playoff series.

Skjei’s goal, powered by a pass from Tuevo Teravainen, was a crucial breakthrough for Carolina, marking their first power-play goal in 17 attempts in the series. Despite squandering a two-goal lead earlier in the game, this goal proved decisive, allowing the Hurricanes to stay alive in the NHL playoffs.

With this win, the Hurricanes have earned another chance to compete in the playoffs.

However, the Rangers still hold a 3-1 lead in the series, with Game 5 set to take place at Madison Square Garden on Monday night.

In addition to Skjei’s goal, Evgeny Kuznetsov, Stefan Noesen, and Sebastian Aho also contributed goals for Carolina, showcasing a strong start that provided early momentum. Frederik Andersen made 22 saves in goal for Carolina as they aim to become the fifth team in NHL history to overcome a 3-0 deficit and win a playoff series, a feat last achieved in 2014.

The Rangers, on the other hand, saw goals from Will Cuylle, Barclay Goodrow, and Alexis Lafreniere, with Igor Shesterkin making 27 saves in goal for New York.
