Carolina tops Vegas in shootout, spoils DeBoer’s home debut

LAS VEGAS (AP) Andrei Svechnikov and Justin Williams scored in the shootout, leading the Carolina Hurricanes to a 6-5 victory over the Vegas Golden Knights on Saturday night.

The loss spoiled the home debut of Vegas coach Peter DeBoer, who was hired Jan. 15 and coached his first seven games with the Golden Knights on the road.

Carolina erased a two-goal deficit twice in the third period, scoring four goals in the final frame.

Martin Necas, Teuvo Teravainen, Sebastian Aho, Erik Haula and Haydn Fleury scored in regulation for the Hurricanes. James Reimer made 31 saves.
