Canes lead Rangers heading into third period of Game 5

Brind’Amour’s challenge overturned what would have been the Rangers’ go-ahead goal early in the second period. The video review might have been just what the Canes and their coach needed.

Instead of being down 2-1, the Canes used the moment to take control of the game with 15:03 left in the period. Given the new lease on the game, the Canes were able to dominate.

The Canes improved to 7-0 in the playoffs at home to counter an 0-5 record on the road. They will try to change the latter mark on Saturday and close out the Rangers in Game 6 at Madison Square Garden.

Vincent Trocheck scored at 12:57 in the first period to give the Canes a 1-0 lead. Captain Jordan Staal set up the short-handed goal with a beautiful saucer pass.
