NHL: Andrei Svechnikov scores Michigan's goal against Bruins

Andrei Svechnikov once again stunned hockey fans with a Michigan-style goal on Tuesday night in the Carolina Hurricanes' 4-1 win over the Boston Bruins.

The Hurricanes forward made a stunning tackle at the expense of the Bruins' Jeremy Swayman in the second period.

Midway through the game, Svechnikov spun the net, quickly lifted the puck on his paddle and placed it into the top corner just before Swayman and defender Andrew Beck reached the post.

At this point, the officials did not see anything, so the match continued for approximately thirty seconds. The whistle blew and the goal was confirmed after a video replay.

Svechnikov is familiar with Michigan-style scoring, having scored two such goals during the 2019 season. The goal was his 19th of the season and opened the scoring for the Canes.

Teuvo Teravainen connected for the Hurricanes just under three minutes later to extend his team's lead. Svechnikov collected an assist in the sequence.

Charlie McAvoy cut the Canes' lead to one goal before the end of the period.

The Canes had no intention of letting the Atlantic leaders get back to scoring. Jake Guentzel lit the red light for the sixth time since joining the Raleigh team in the middle of the third period. Seth Jarvis put the finishing touch on the evening with his 30th goal of the season. He did not exceed 17 goals during his first two seasons at Pitman Arena.

Pyotr Kochetkov stopped 22 shots in the win while his counterpart surrendered four times on 26 shots.

With this win, the Canes now have as many points as the Bruins in the standings with 107 points. The team is three points behind the New York Rangers and occupies the top spot in the Eastern Conference.
