A record-shattering 87 disallowed goals by the Flyers prevented an 8-1 win over the Hurricanes from really getting out of hand on Thursday.

“The ‘Canes caught quite a few breaks out there,” said Jeff Carter, who had to settle for his second career hat trick after 51 of his goals were erased throughout the contest. “We had, what, eight goals actually count for us? It seemed like every time we had the chance to really really step on their necks, we couldn’t capitalize.”

The Hurricanes also had a goal disallowed late in the third period, missing a golden opportunity to cut the lead to six.
