Svechnikov's hat trick leads Hurricanes past Rangers 4-1

TORONTO (AP) Carolina's Andrei Svechnikov scored three times for the first postseason hat trick in franchise history and the Hurricanes beat the New York Rangers 4-1 on Monday for a 2-0 lead in the Stanley Cup qualifier series.

The 20-year-old Svechnikov beat Henrik Lundqvist for the game's first goal less than 5 minutes into the game. He followed with a power-play one-timer early in the second off a feed from Sami Vatanen, then buried a third at 14:02 of the third off a feed from Sebastian Aho - who assisted on all three of Svechnikov's goals.

"I think he'll get a few more (hat tricks) before his time's over in his career," Carolina coach Rod Brind'Amour said. "He's a gamer, too. this guy is one of those players in this break that worked on this game, he wanted to get better. I think you're seeing that."
