RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) Teuvo Teravainen had a natural hat trick in the third period and an assist Monday night, leading the Carolina Hurricanes to a 5-1 victory over the Dallas Stars.
Sebastian Aho added his first goal of the season and two assists, and Jordan Staal's four assists gave him 201 with the Hurricanes. Jeff Skinner scored the other Carolina goal in the closing seconds.
Scott Darling stopped 25 shots in the victory.
Alexander Radulov scored for Dallas, which won the previous meeting at home 4-3 on Oct. 20. The Stars came out on top in their previous three trips to Raleigh.
Aho's first goal came in his 14th game of the season, two earlier than last season when he finished with 24 goals.
Carolina took the lead on a rush at 8:07 of the first period as Aho beat Ben Bishop through the legs after Staal's pinpoint centering pass from the left wing.
Radulov tied it by working hard in the slot on a power play at 8:44 of the second.
But the Hurricanes went ahead again on a power play at 2:39 of the third, with Teravainen scoring on a rocket from the left point. Staal and Aho had assists on Carolina's first power-play goal this month.
Teravainen made it 3-1 at 6:51 from the high slot, getting the puck past Bishop with Aho providing a screen.
Bishop finished with 23 saves.
