Hurricanes' Lee Stempniak: Pots pair of goals in loss
Stempniak scored both Carolina goals -- 56 seconds apart in the third period -- in a 3-2 loss to the Oilers on Tuesday. Linemate Victor Rask assisted on both tallies.
The 33-year-old journeyman is off to quite the start with his new team, as he's now rattled off five points in the first three games of the season. Stempniak quietly produced at a clip of 0.62 points per game last year (51 points total) split between Boston and New Jersey, so there could be some real value here if he sticks on a scoring line and keeps manning the point on the power play.
