Jordan Martinook scored a breakaway goal with 2:27 left in regulation as the visiting Carolina Hurricanes snapped the Boston Bruins’ nine-game point streak with a 3-2 win on Wednesday night.
The Hurricanes, who had a 33-28 shots-on-goal advantage, are 9-2-1 in their last 12 games.
Martin Necas and Teuvo Teravainen each scored for Carolina, which led 2-0 at the second intermission thanks to a 2-for-3 effort on the power play.
Sebastian Aho had two assists.
Spencer Martin, who was claimed off waivers from Columbus last Friday, made 26 saves in his Hurricanes debut.
Brad Marchand scored back-to-back goals in the third period to tie the score. He and Ray Bourque are now tied for fifth on the franchise’s all-time goals list with 395 apiece.
Trent Frederic assisted on both of Marchand’s goals.
Linus Ullmark made 30 saves in the loss, which was Boston’s first in regulation since Jan. 4.
Martin’s bid at becoming the first goaltender to shut out the Bruins this season ended as Marchand slammed home a Frederic rebound just 90 seconds into the third.
The Bruins needed just a few minutes more to make it 2-2, equalizing at the 7:20 mark when Marchand crashed the net to backhand a rebound that Martin left in the crease after making a stop on Charlie Coyle.
On the deciding goal, Martinook took the break-in pass from Necas and sent a dribbling puck past Ullmark.
The Hurricanes took the lead when Necas scored with 1:56 left in the first period, slipping a wrist shot from the top of the left circle through traffic and past Ullmark’s blocker.
Carolina maintained control in the middle frame with eight straight shots on goal before Boston recorded one, but Ullmark held strong — and got some help from his post for the second time on Brent Burns’ point shot — to keep Boston’s deficit at 1-0 halfway through.
On another power-play opportunity, Teravainen doubled the visitors’ lead at 11:50 of the second. Aho’s pass to the slot pinballed around, but Teravainen knocked the puck home despite Coyle’s strong stick check in front.
