RALEIGH , N.C. (AP) — In the span of six days he became a father, signed a contract extension and scored a game-winning goal.Martinook scored the go-ahead goal Friday night, and the Carolina Hurricanes beat the Vegas Golden Knights 5-2 in the teams’ return from the All-Star break.Martinook’s wife gave birth to their first child on Jan. 26. Three days later, he signed a two-year, $4 million extension. He capped off the week with the tiebreaking goal late in the second period as the Hurricanes won for the third time in four games.The goal was Martinook’s 11th in 51 games this season, tying his single-season career-high. He scored 11 in 77 games with Arizona in 2016-17.“I don’t know if I want to have another baby yet, but I definitely want to have another week like that,” Martinook said. “To have another one of those weeks, that would be good.”Nino Niederreiter Winnipeg Jets T-Shirts Authentic , Brett Pesce and Sebastian Aho also scored, and Justin Faulk added an empty-netter with 49 seconds remaining. Justin Williams had two assists and Petr Mrazek stopped 22 shots.Shea Theodore scored twice for Vegas, which has lost five of seven. Maxime Lagace stopped 27 of 31 shots in his first game since being recalled from the American Hockey League.“Both teams were the same, they had the same break that we had, it’s just they were the better team,” Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant said. “We didn’t play good enough to win, bottom line. We played good in spurts but not good enough to win.”Carolina came out fast and peppered Lagace early to set the tempo. Vegas struck first with a power-play goal by Theodore just over five minutes in, but the Hurricanes responded quickly.Williams notched his first assist on a nifty play in which he redirected a rolling puck into the slot with the outside of his skate. Niederreiter snapped off a wrist shot to make it 1-1.“That’s a top-10 play (by Williams),” Hurricanes coach Rod Brind’Amour said. “You’re not going to see too many guys think to do that.”Carolina took the lead 47 seconds into the second period when Lagace ventured too far out of his crease to try and poke away a loose puck. Pesce corralled Lagace’s feeble push and lifted it into a wide-open net for the lead.Theodore tied it with a shot through traffic late in the period Winnipeg Jets Hoodies Authentic , but Carolina again responded quickly.Just 36 seconds after Theodore’s tying goal, Martinook buried Brock McGinn’s pass with a one-timer to finish off a pretty odd-man rush, putting Carolina back in front.“It’s probably a little cliché but that one felt pretty good,” Martinook said. “As soon as I scored it I just had one thought in my mind, and it was my kid. It was pretty cool.”Aho opened up a two-goal lead in the third with a tremendous individual effort, carrying the puck from center ice all the way to the net and flipping a backhander from a sharp angle over Lagace’s shoulder. The Hurricanes never let up, staying on the attack the entire way and limiting Vegas to five shots in the final period.“The third period, I thought that was great,” Brind’Amour said. “We’re up a goal but we looked like the team that needed to get a couple Winnipeg Jets Hats Authentic , and that’s the way we have to play.”NOTES: McGinn went for X-rays after taking a slap shot by Theodore off his ankle in the final minute. Brind’Amour did not have an immediate update on McGinn’s status. … Niederreiter has five goals in five games with the Hurricanes since being acquired from Minnesota on Jan. 17. … Faulk’s assist in the first period moved him past Dave Babych for most career points by a defenseman in franchise history (241). .. Aho extended his point streak to four games, and Jaccob Slavin extended his assist streak to four straight. … Hurricanes G Curtis McElhinney missed his fifth straight game with a knee injury. He remains day-to-day. …. Vegas has been held to two goals or less in four of its last five.UP NEXTGolden Knights: At Florida on Saturday.Hurricanes: Host Calgary on Sunday. The deadline for retired players to opt in to the $18.9 million settlement of the concussion lawsuit against the NHL has been extended.Players’ attorneys confirmed the extension to The Associated Press on Friday night. It was not immediately clear what the new deadline was.The 318 former players who sued the league and accused it of failing to protect them from head injuries or warning them of the risks involved with playing initially had until the Friday to opt in to the settlement that was reached 75 days ago.Each player who opts in would receive $22,000 and could be eligible for up to $75,000 in medical treatment. The settlement is significantly less than the billion-dollar agreement reached between the NFL and its former players on the same issue of head injuries.Charles Zimmerman, a lead attorney for players, said earlier in the day participation is “very good” so far, adding there were still some players who needed to be contacted for their decisions.“The vast majority of eligible retired players have agreed to participate in the proposed NHL concussion settlement,” players’ lawyers said in a statement. “Plaintiffs’ counsel, however Custom Winnipeg Jets Jerseys , have encountered difficulties reaching some eligible retired players to discuss the settlement. Thus, at the request of plaintiffs’ counsel, the NHL has agreed to extend the participation deadline to allow completion of those communications.”Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly referred the matter to plaintiffs’ lawyers and said the NHL would have no comment.Daniel Carcillo, a vocal critic of the league and the settlement, said he would not be opting in and knew more 10-12 other former players who also were not. Carcillo said Friday he wanted his day in court with the league but didn’t begrudge anyone who wanted to opt in and take the $22,000.Carcillo said he has fielded calls from more than 20 heads of individual teams’ alumni associations and that he has tried to tell any player who asks the facts of the lawsuit without injecting his opinion. Carcillo pointed to“If 22’s enough for you and you need it, then go ahead,” said Carcillo, who played 474 regular-season and playoff games from 2007-2015. “I won’t judge anybody who takes it. I don’t judge the guys who (played) five games and they saw an opportunity. But I also say this so that people understand why it’s such a disrespectful number because right now (the NHL doesn’t) feel that threatened.”Reed Larson , who played 936 NHL regular-season and playoff games, said he signed on to be part of the settlement but understood why some players with serious health problems decided not to because the money wouldn’t cut it for them. There is a clause in the settlement that allows the NHL to terminate it if 100 percent of players don’t accept, but Larson said lawyers are not concerned.“They think everything will go ahead and move ahead and they don’t see any reason why it won’t,” Larson said.
