Hurricanes rally past Capitals 5-2, force Game 7

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) Justin Williams earned another chance to live up to his nickname.

The rest of the Carolina Hurricanes aren't yet ready to end their first playoff appearance in a decade.

Jordan Staal scored the go-ahead goal and added an assist in the third period, and the Hurricanes beat the Washington Capitals 5-2 on Monday night to force Game 7 in their first-round playoff series.
