For the second time in as many nights the Carolina Hurricanes have a win.

The ‘Canes hung on for a 3-2 win Sunday night against the defending Stanley Cup champion L.A. Kings.

The Canes are now 2-0-0 to start November after going 0-6-2 last month.

Carolina last won back-to-back games to conclude the 2013-14 season.

The Kings meanwhile have yet to win on the road this season falling to 0-4-2 away from the Staples Center.

Victor Rask opened the scoring with his first NHL goal.

Chris Terry gave Carolina 2-0 lead early in the second period.

After Mike Richards got the Kings on the board, Elias Lindholm picked up the eventual game winner.

Alec Martinez had the other L.A. goal.

Jonathan Quick made 29 saves in the loss while Cam Ward made 27 saves for his second straight win of the season.
