RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) Carolina Hurricanes coach Rod Brind'Amour gave his players a day off after a tough loss. They rewarded their first-year coach with a 3-0 win over the Arizona Coyotes on Sunday.
Warren Foegele scored his first goal since October and Petr Mrazek made 23 saves in his first shutout of the season to help the Hurricanes bounce back from a difficult loss to Washington on Friday.
"It just felt like the guys needed a mental break from the game of hockey," Brind'Amour said. "We've been grinding a lot and not getting results. I think they came back today a little refreshed."
