CALGARY, Alberta — Eddie Lack doesn’t know why he plays well against the Calgary Flames, he’s just happy he does.

The Swedish goaltender made 24 saves on Thursday night to backstop the Carolina Hurricanes to a 4-2 win over their hosts for Carolina’s first win of the season and fifth for Lack in seven career starts against the Flames.

“In the beginning of my career (with Vancouver) we played good team games and it was the same today,” he said.

“It’s just circumstantial.”

Teuvo Teravainen, Victor Rask, Viktor Stalberg and Jeff Skinner scored for Carolina (1-1-2), which is starting the season with a six-game road trip.

Johnny Gaudreau, who signed a six-year $40.5 million contract the day before the season began, scored his first of the season for Calgary (1-3-1). Troy Brouwer also scored for the Flames.

Lack previously also played for the Vancouver Canucks and had a 1.99 goals against average against Calgary coming into the game. He was acquired by Carolina prior to the 2015-16 season.

Brian Elliott, who was picked up from St. Louis in the offseason as Calgary looked to strengthen their goaltending, made 28 stops but surrendered two soft goals — to Rask and Stalberg — and is winless in three games.

Carolina surrendered leads in losing in overtime in the first two games of their Western Canadian trip and the fact they didn’t Thursday left head coach Bill Peters nothing but happy.

“We were poised and more confident in each other and the system,” he said. “We got real good contribution from throughout the lineup.”

Special teams were key to this game. The Hurricanes were 2-for-8 on the power play while the Flames struggled, going 0-for-6, which left their new head coach Glen Gulutzan wanting to talk about one thing only when addressing the Calgary media.

“Our whole game isn’t what’s frustrating, just parts of it are, and what’s frustrating me is the specialty teams,” he said.

“They had two power play goals and we didn’t. We just couldn’t win on special teams.”

The Flames had plenty of opportunities in the opening period with eight power-play minutes, four of them coming on a double minor for high sticking when Lee Stempniak clipped Flames captain Mark Giordano under the eye with an accidental high stick.

“It’s good to get the first win,” said Stempniak, who is with his 10th NHL team.

“Results aside I think we’ve played very well and we’re pretty satisfied. We’re looking to build on this.”

Lack regrouped after giving up four goals in his only other start this season, a 5-4 overtime loss to his first NHL team in Vancouver five days previous.

“We haven’t had any luck with three goal leads so far so I’m really happy that we got it done there at the end. It’s a good feeling,” he said.

The Flames looked lifeless until late in the second when Brouwer scored.

“I don’t know what it is,” center Sean Monahan wondered. “I think we got to be more desperate, be hungry. We’ve got to get dirty. We’re losing battles on the wall and we should be getting those pucks. I think that’s hurting us.”

Teravainen popped his own rebound past Elliott to open the scoring at 7:55 and Rask’s soft wrister found the net from the top of the faceoff circle through a long screen on the power play at 16:12.

Stalberg got in behind the Flames defense at Calgary’s blue line, took a nice feed from Klas Dahlbeck and slipped a weak backhand past Elliott to make it 3-0 at 4:55 the second period.

Brouwer woke up the listless Flames with just 1:53 left in the second. He burst in on his off-wing and snapped a shot over Lack’s stick-side.
