RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Petr Mrazek made 28 saves in his first game back after a two-month absence as the Carolina Hurricanes beat the Dallas Stars 1-0. Mrazek played for the first time since suffering a thumb injury Jan. 30 against Dallas. Stars coach Rick Bowness didn’t return to the bench for the third period because of what the team announced was a COVID protocol. Jordan Martinook’s second-period goal was enough scoring for Carolina in its second game of an eight-game homestand. Jake Oettinger made 37 saves for Dallas.
