(RALEIGH NC) - Frederik Andersen made 24 saves, Sebastian Aho and Seth Jarvis each had a goal and two assists, and the Carolina Hurricanes clinched a playoff berth with a 4-0 win over the Detroit Red Wings. Aho and Jarvis scored 57 seconds apart in Carolina’s four-goal second period, with Martin Necas and Brady Skjei adding the other goals. All four goals came in a 12-minute span. Jake Guentzel had two assists. Carolina will be in the postseason for the sixth consecutive season. The Red Wings are winless (0-2-1) on the first three stops of a five-game road trip. James Reimer stopped 29 shots against his former team. He had won his last three starts. The Red Wings played without forwards Patrick Kane and Austin Czarnik because of illnesses. Kane, who hadn’t missed a game since January, had three goals in the past four games, giving him 40 points in 41 games this season.
