Canes beat buzzer, take overtime to stun Flyers
The Carolina Hurricanes simply wouldn't go away Saturday night, stunning the Philadelphia Flyers 5-4.
Martin Necas tied the contest with under one second remaining in regulation, banging home a loose puck on the doorstep of the goal.
Necas is no stranger to late-game heroics this season. This was his third final-minute game-tying goal of the campaign, matching the NHL record, according to Sportsnet Stats.
Carolina wasted no time ending the game in overtime. Sebastian Aho went end-to-end, dangling past Tony DeAngelo en route to completing his hat trick and sealing the victory in highlight-reel fashion.
The swift turn of events puts the Hurricanes three points clear of the New Jersey Devils for the top spot in the Metropolitan Division.
