Aho notched an assist in Sunday's 6-2 loss to Boston. With six points in his last four games, Aho's play has not been an issue for the Cinderella Canes, yet they still find themselves down 2-0 to a formidable Bruins squad. Returning home for Games 3 and 4, Aho and his teammates must find another gear if they're to make up ground in what's been a one-sided series up to this point.
Aho scored a power-play goal Thursday but it wasn't enough, as Boston defeated Carolina 5-2 in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals. After racking up 83 points in the regular season, the 21-year-old has found the scoresheet 10 times this postseason, including three goals and pair of assists in his last three games. Aho also led all Carolina forwards with 19:32 TOI on Thursday and continues to be the straw that stirs the Hurricanes' drink. He and his team will now hope they can even series with a win in Game 2 on Sunday.
Aho scored a power-play goal while adding an assist and four shots in Friday's 5-2 win over the Islanders in Game 4. With a chance to advance, Aho and Teuvo Teravainen each posted a goal and an assist to help the Hurricanes sweep the Islanders. Aho has registered four goals and five helpers in 11 postseason games during this run, which continues into the Eastern Conference finals.
Aho scored a goal and an assist during Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Islanders in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference semifinals. He notched the only helper on Justin Williams' game-winner midway through the third period, then put home the second of Carolina's two empty-netters to close things out. Aho had been held scoreless through the first two games of the second round, but after this performance the 21-year-old now has three goals and seven points through 10 postseason contests.
Aho fired seven shots on goal and dished two hits in Saturday's 6-0 loss to the Capitals in Game 6. Aho led the Hurricanes in shots, but he couldn't solve Capitals goalie Braden Holtby. The dry performance snaps a three-game point streak for the 21-year-old Finn, who will likely need to generate some offense if the Hurricanes' season is to extend beyond Monday's Game 6.
