"He should have a little more of a shooter's mentality".

Aho had 24 goals last season after not scoring in the first 13 games as a rookie, and Canes coach Bill Peters believes Aho can do that again now that he's broken through and gotten the first one. "I thought they got a couple bounces but, at the same time, we have to make sure we're locking it up defensively, and we didn't do that".

"A long time ago", he said.

Carolina, 3-0-2 in its last five, rebounded from a 4-3 overtime loss Saturday night against Chicago in which it surrendered a pair of two-goal leads. He didn't miss and the ice was peppered with hats, Teravainen later saying it was his first hat trick since his junior hockey days. "There is no instant gratification, that's not the way it works, but now everybody is getting comfortable and we're getting some results and some wins".

"It's disappointing", Dallas coach Ken Hitchcock said. "We've been talking about shooting more pucks and being around the net, so I think [Lindholm] was right at the net, so that's why my shot got through". "I want us to remember this and I want us to grow from it".

It was the Hurricanes' first power play goal since October 29, snapping a five-game drought and giving Carolina (7-5-4) just its second power play goal in the last 11 games after it started the season with five in its first five games. Peters said of the two earlier power plays that were wiped out by penalties on Lindholm and Justin Williams.

Teravainen made it 3-1 at 6:51 from the high slot, getting the puck past Bishop with Aho providing a screen.

Sam Bennett scored his first of the season for Calgary, and Micheal Ferland got his fourth goal in four games.

Jeff Skinner scored the other Carolina goal in the closing seconds.

Sebastian Aho added his first goal of the season and two assists, and Jordan Staal's four assists gave him 201 with the Hurricanes.

The line with Staal centering Aho and Tervainen finished with 11 points - the same total it had when Aho got his first career goal against Washington last season in a three-point night. "I don't know who was happier for him, collectively the team on the bench or himself". "He has been playing well so you knew it was going to come".

The Stars' top-rated power-play (31.2 percent) tied the game 1-1 at 8:44 of the second period.

NOTES: Carolina came in with the fewest games played (15) in the league.

Alexander Radulov scored for Dallas (9-8-0), extending his point streak to eight games. Ben Bishop did not have as much success for the Stars.

"My goal came on a great play by Teuvo", Aho said.
