Canes finally get first win

On Wednesday, the Hurricanes finally got their first win of the season with a 3-2 regulation win over the defending Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins.  The Hurricanes got goals from Joni Pitkänen, Anthony Stewart and Jiri Tlusty, while the visitors got markers from Brad Marchand and Tyler Seguin. 

The Hurricanes converted one of four power play chances, while shutting down the Bruins power play.  To be fair, Boston has struggled mightily in that department, but it was still a great night for the special teams. 

Defenseman Jamie McBain made his season debut, while rookie Justin Faulk was one of three healthy scratches on the night. 

Carolina is now 1-2-1 on the young season.  They’ll start a four-game road trip on Friday in Buffalo.
