Kuznetsov, Andersen power the Hurricanes to win over Panthers

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – Evgeny Kuznetsov had his first goal as a member of the Hurricanes and Frederik Andersen recorded his first shutout in more than a year as Carolina beat the Florida Panthers 4-0.

Kuznetsov, playing in his fourth game since last week’s trade from the Washington Capitals, joined Seth Jarvis, Martin Necas and Andrei Svechnikov with goals.

Jaccob Slavin had two assists, while another newcomer, Jake Guenztel, posted his first assist with the Hurricanes.

Andersen stopped 21 shots. Sergei Bobrovsky made 32 saves as the Panthers lost for just the second time in 10 games.
