RALEIGH, North Carolina (Ticker) -- The Carolina Hurricanes
started the season slowly but have played back to championship
form as of late.
Carolina looks for its fifth win in six games when it faces the
Dallas Stars on Saturday.
Erik Cole had a goal and three assists and Rod Brind'Amour added
two goals and two assists to lead Carolina to a 4-1 triumph
over the Washington Capitals on Friday.
Hurricanes goaltender John Grahame made 21 saves, winning for
the first time in four appearances this season.
The Stars snapped out of their offense funk on Friday with a 5-3
victory over the Atlanta Thrashers.
Mike Ribeiro scored two goals and Patrik Stefan added a tally
and two assists in the win.
Marty Turco made 20 saves for Dallas, which was 1-for-3 with the
extra attacker. The Stars had scored only three goals in their
