Teuvo Teravainen scored three times in the opening 9:44 of the third period for his first career hat trick as Carolina extended its point streak to five straight games by beating Dallas.
Carolina, 3-0-2 in its last five, rebounded from a 4-3 overtime loss Saturday night to Chicago in which it surrendered a pair of two-goal leads. Teravainen notched the natural hat trick in his 212th career game.
Meanwhile, Dallas saw its six-game winning streak against Carolina snapped and has now been outscored 22-11 in the third period this season.
