It's very likely a case of too little, too late -- and the Hurricanes almost certainly will miss the playoffs for a fifth consecutive season -- but their special teams have improved recently.

In the past nine games, the Canes have scored on nine of 31 power plays (29 percent). The penalty kill has been even better, with Carolina going 32-of-34 in the past 13 games (94.1 percent) to move up to 13th in the NHL at 82.8 percent. "I don’t think we changed anything systematically," said Canes forward Patrick Dwyer, who gets a lot of shorthanded ice time. "We had some meeting where we sat down and said, ‘You’ve got to take pride in doing it and in killing the penalties, knowing you’re going to get your bumps and bruises and stings, but knowing you’ve got to take that or we’ll find someone else who will.’" Dwyer said coach Kirk Muller was the first to make the demand, but other players also spoke up. "It was like, ‘Enough’s enough. We’re going to need this to be in games and we need to figure it out,’" Dwyer said.

Pat Dwyer scored a goal and added an assist for Carolina in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

Dwyer is not typically counted on for much scoring, which is why his 18 points in 62 games don't make him worthy of a spot on fantasy rosters. Nathan Gerbe and Andrei Loktionov also scored goals for Carolina in the win.

Pat Dwyer (lower body) was able to play for Carolina on Saturday.

Dwyer was questionable for the contest, but he didn't end up missing any games as a result of the injury. He had a minus-one rating and four shots on goal. He also logged 17:04 minutes in Carolina's 3-2 win over Florida.
Jan 19 - 5:31 AM

Pat Dwyer is day-to-day with a lower-body injury.

Dwyer has five goals and 13 points in 43 games this season. He isn't expected to ever have much fantasy value in standard leagues.
Jan 14 - 2:15 PM

Pat Dwyer assisted on two goals Saturday in the Hurricanes 3-2 win.

It was a big game for Dwyer who also had seven shots on goal to lead the Hurricanes. He now has four goals and 12 points in 39 games with a plus-three rating. He started the game on the third line but played mostly with Jordan Staal on the second unit. He is a fringe player in deep, deep, fantasy pools at best.
Jan 5 - 7:31 AM

Pat Dwyer scored for the second time in two games on Sunday.

Dwyer is a bottom six forward so he is not expected to score much but now has three goals in his last six games. Dwyer has five points in 22 games this season but do not expect this recent offensive outburst to continue and enjoy it while you can.

Pat Dwyer had a goal and an assist in Carolina's 2-1 win Tuesday.

It was a rare night for Dwyer offensively as he now has just three points in 16 games. He's a physical forward, but in addition to not getting many points, he also doesn't spend much time in the sin bin.

Pat Dwyer (upper body) returned to action on Monday October 28.

Pat Dwyer has become a veteran presence on the Carolina Hurricanes.

Dwyer has gradually established himself with Carolina after spending years trying to get noticed in the minors. At this point in his career he's a safe bet to make the team, but he's still in a battle for ice time. He took a step forward in the shortened season with 16 points in 46 games. His career-high is 18 points and he should surpass that in 2013-14.

Despite playing in a shortened season due to the lockout, Pat Dwyer tied his career-high for goals in a year, with his eighth marker, in Tuesday's shootout win over the Islanders.

He scored eight goals in 80 games in 2010-11, but it took him just 44 contests to accomplish that feat this campaign. Dwyer has 15 points this season, which is probably slightly above expectations but still not enough to get him much fantasy attention.

Pat Dwyer (lower body) will get back into Carolina's lineup Saturday night.

He has missed the past two games with a lower-body injury.
