NHL: Brady Tkachuk scores 2 goals as Senators beat Hurricanes 4-3

 

Brady Tkachuk scored twice, Anton Forsberg got ahead of 42 shots, and the Ottawa Senators beat the Carolina Hurricanes 4-3 on Tuesday night.

It’s the second victory in as many nights for the Sens, who beat the New Jersey Devils 4-1 the day before.

DJ Smith’s squad had success against Carolina this time around, picking up five out of a possible six points.

Tkachuk scored in the 71st second of play in the first period, and Alex Formenton also scored in the first period to set the stage for this win against the leaders of the Metropolitan division.

Chris Tierney then scored in the middle period to give Ottawa a four-goal lead.

Cleared of the score sheet after 40 minutes, the Canes attempted a push, even approaching a goal with 1:12 to play, but it was insufficient.

Andrei Svechnikov, Brendan Smith and Vincent Trocheck outsmarted Forsberg.

Defenseman Nick Holden had two assists and blocked five shots in the win.
