TORONTO, ON — Sebastian Aho scored a goal and set up another in the Carolina Hurricanes’ 3-2 win against the New York Rangers on Saturday in the NHL’s opening playoff game following a 4.5-month pause.

Jaccob Slavin scored 61 seconds in on Carolina’s first shot on goal in helping the Hurricanes gain the edge in the best-of-five preliminary round series.

Martin Necas sealed the win in a game the Hurricanes never trailed by one-timing a shot in off the skate of Rangers defenseman Marc Staal with 9 minutes, 9 seconds remaining.
