Justin Faulk scored in the Hurricanes’ 5-2 loss to the Sharks on Saturday night.

A "Justin Faulk" game, if you will. The young defenseman is supremely gifted on offense, but struggles at times in his own zone. In this one, he had five shots on goal, but also was on the ice for four goals against. He has three goals and five points, with a minus-six rating this season. Riley Nash picked up the other goal.

Justin Faulk scored for the Hurricanes in their 4-3 loss to the Red Wings on Saturday night.

Faulk got his power-play goal with three seconds remaining in the game. He also had a whopping seven shots on goal, though he was also a minus-three, too. That pretty much encapsulates him as a player — great offensive ability, but not the best in his own end, so fantasy owners will have to deal with a subpar plus-minus. Nathan Gerbe and Victor Rask each got goals.
