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-19 quarantine.

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.
