Jordan Staal tied the game in the 3rd period and Brock McGinn scored in double overtime to lift the Carolina Hurricanes to a 4-3 win in Game 7, advancing to Round 2.

The resilient Canes just never went away in winning four of the final five games in the series. Most stunning with tonight’s result was Washington blowing leads of 2-0 and 3-1 in the game 7 as this marks the first time since 1967 that no division winner advanced past Round 1
