BUFFALO, NY (AP) — Stefan Noesen had a goal and an assist to lead the Carolina Hurricanes to a 5-1 win over the Buffalo Sabers on Wednesday night.

Sebastian Aho, Brent Burns, Derek Stepan and Jordan Martinook also scored for the Hurricanes, who have won seven straight games. Antti Raanta made 29 saves.

Alex Tuch scored the only goal for Buffalo. Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen made 29 saves.

“We played pretty consistently,” said Carolina coach Rod Brind’Amour. “Our boys work really hard and that’s the cornerstone of our group, contributions up and down the line-up.”

The Hurricanes completely dominated the Sabers from the start, took control of the game and took an early 3-0 lead.

“It felt like that was huge for us,” said Aho. “There was almost the game.”

Aho opened the scoring on the power play 2:35 into the game and completed a pass from Teuvo Teravainen through the crease for a tap-in. Aho extended his hot streak and has scored in six straight games.
