For Hurricanes, home ice key in Game 2 vs. Rangers

The Carolina Hurricanes will look to continue to feast on home cookin' in the playoffs Friday when they host the New York Rangers in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series.

The Hurricanes have won all five playoff games this spring in Raleigh, N.C. They have outscored the opposition by a 20-7 margin and killed off 92.3 percent of their foes' power plays.

Sebastian Aho scored late in the third period and defenseman Ian Cole tallied 3:12 into overtime to lift Carolina to a 2-1 victory over New York in the series opener on Wednesday. Cole scored his second career NHL playoff goal after his wrist shot from above the right faceoff circle caromed off the stick of Rangers defenseman Ryan Lindgren and past Vezina Trophy finalist Igor Shesterkin.
