Michael Ferland has spoiled the return of Jeff Skinner in Carolina, while the attacker of the Hurricanes amassed three points in a gain of 4 to 3 on the Buffalo Sabres on Friday night in Raleigh.

The Manitoba 26-year-old was the first to register the mark in this duel. It has also been at the origin of both the successes of Sebastian Aho, who in the end will have made the difference in this encounter. The other marker of the winners was Justin Williams.

For his part, Skinner has hit the back of the net in the first period. It was his 30th goal of the season, which makes him the second player from the national League to reach that plateau. The other being Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals.

Skinner put the feet at the PNC Arena for the first time since he was sent to Buffalo last August 2 in return for Cliff Pu, a choice of second round in 2019 and a choice of third and sixth round in 2020. The native of Toronto had played the first eight seasons of his career with the Hurricanes, who had selected in the first round (seventh overall) of the auction of 2010.

Jason Pominville and Kyle Okposo were also made by shining the red light in a case losing.
