Hurricanes dominant in game five, take 3-2 series lead over Bruins
Carolina 5, Boston 1
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Rookie Seth Jarvis scored twice and Antti Raanta finished with 34 saves to help the Carolina Hurricanes beat the Boston Bruins 5-1 to take a 3-2 lead in the first-round playoff series.
Defensemen Jaccob Slavin and Tony DeAngelo scored first-period goals for the Hurricanes and Vincent Trocheck added an empty-netter.
The series has yet to see a team secure a road win. It wasn’t close to happening in this one with Carolina showing a much cleaner performance than their two losses in Boston.
Connor Clifton scored for Boston, while Jeremy Swayman had 33 saves.
The Hurricanes can clinch the series Thursday in Boston.
