Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Delivers helper

Fast recorded an assist, three hits and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 3-0 win over the Predators in Game 2. Fast helped out on a Warren Foegele in the final minute of the contest.

Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Finally lights lamp for Carolina

Fast scored two goals, one on the power play, in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Lightning.
