Kotkaniemi scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in Friday's 6-3 victory over the Flyers.

Both points came in the second period, as the Hurricanes pulled away after falling behind 3-2. Kotkaniemi had only one point (a goal) in his prior 11 games, and so far the $6.1 million offer sheet Carolina gave the 21-year-old to steal him away from Montreal is looking like a poor investment, as he has just four goals and six points through 19 contests for his new club.
