Don't be surprised if Cam Ward and Scott Darling split the net the rest of the way.

Darling had been the undisputed number one goalie the first two months of the season but Ward has come on of late and won two in a row this week before Darling picked up the win on Saturday. It was the first time all season that the Hurricanes have won three in a row and they certainly seem to be a better team of late. Ward is 6-2-1 this season in limited duty with a 2.63 GAA and a .922 save percentage while Darling is 8-9-6 with a 2.64 GAA and a .903 save percentage.

Darling had lost his last five starts prior to Saturday night's win. His record now improves to 8-9-6 with a 2.64 goals-against-average with a .903 save percentage.

Noah Hanifin scored the game-winning goal for the Carolina Hurricanes in a 2-1 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday.

Hanifin had gone four straight games without a point prior to Saturday's win. Hanifin's goal came in the second period and was pretty much all the Canes needed for a win. Jordan Staal opened the scoring minutes into the first period. Hanifin now has six goals and 16 points in 32 games played.

The Carolina Hurricanes have decided to scratch Haydn Fleury tonight against the Blue Jackets.

With the Hurricanes on the second half of a back-to-back, head coach Bill Peters is making a few changes to get some fresh bodies in. Darling hasn't registered a win since the end of November against the Predators. He has a 7-9-6 record with a 2.72 goals against average and .899 save percentage.
Dec 16 - 5:14 PM

Scott Darling is the Hurricanes' probable starter Saturday night against Columbus.

Cam Ward has started the Hurricanes' last two games including, Friday night's contest against the Sabres in overtime, but coach Bill Peters could turn to Darling in the second half of the Canes' back-to-back set. Darling is coming off a 3-2 loss to Anaheim in which he stopped 20 shots. For the season, Darling sports a 7-9-6 record, with a 2.72 goals-against average and an .899 save percentage.

Cam Ward allowed four goals on 41 shots in Friday's 5-4 overtime win over the Buffalo Sabres.

The Hurricanes had a 4-2 lead in the third period, but they allowed Jack Eichel to score two goals in 10 seconds to force overtime. In the extra frame, defenseman Jaccob Slavin picked up the game-winning goal for Carolina. The win improves Ward's record to 6-2-1 on the season. He hasn't lost a game in regulation since Nov. 2. He'll enter his next appearance with a 2.63 goals-against-average and a .922 save percentage.

Jaccob Slavin scored the game-winning goal in Friday's 5-4 overtime win over the Buffalo Sabres.

Slavin registered the primary assist on Jordan Staal's game-tying goal (2-2) early in the third period. He then beat Sabres goalie Chad Johnson with a wrister from the slot in the extra frame to give his team the win. Slavin finished the night with a plus-1 rating and four shots on goal in 24:19 of ice time. Tonight's offensive production put an end to Slavin's 12-game pointless drought. He now has three goals and eight assists in 31 games this season. Justin Williams, Derek Ryan and Elias Lindholm also scored for the 'Canes in the win.
Dec 15 - 10:43 PM

Josh Jooris will be a healthy scratch in Friday's game against the Buffalo Sabres.

Jooris has now been scratched in back-to-back games. He has three goals and three assists in 21 games this season. Klas Dahlbeck will also watch the game from the press box.
Dec 15 - 6:42 PM

Cam Ward will get the start in Friday's game against the Buffalo Sabres.

Ward is coming off a 22-save performance in a win over the Golden Knights on Tuesday night. He has a 4-2-1 record with a 2.96 goals-against-average and a .907 save percentage this season.
Dec 15 - 6:33 PM

While some players like to downplay milestones, Cam Ward wasn't shy about the fact that reaching 300 wins was meaningful to him.

Ward reached the 300-victory milestone on Tuesday, becoming the 32nd goaltender to do so. "It's something I've been striving for, for a while, and was very fortunate to get it tonight," said Ward. "I'm just really thankful for the opportunities I've been given throughout my entire career, to be able to stay in the same organization for 13 years and get those 300 wins." The 33-year-old is no longer the Hurricanes' starting goaltender, but he's been decent in the backup role. He has a 5-2-1 record, 2.96 GAA, and .907 save percentage in nine games this season.
Dec 14 - 9:59 AM

Marcus Kruger opened the scoring with an unassisted goal in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout win in Vegas.

Kruger has managed just one goal and five points through 29 outings and he is on the negative side in plus/minus rating. His only value to fantasy owners in deeper pools is his ability to rack up hits. He has managed 12 blocked shots with 35 hits while managing 22 penalty minutes.
Dec 13 - 1:28 AM

Trevor van Riemsdyk posted his first goal of the season in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout victory in Vegas.

Van Riemsdyk has heated up on the road trip, posting a goal with four points and a plus-6 rating over the past four outings. It's impressive since he had no goals and just three assists across his first 23 contests. Despite the recent hot streak he is still nothing more than a low-end add in deeper seasonal pools at this point. However, he isn't a bad low-priced DFS option while running hot.
Dec 13 - 1:22 AM

Cam Ward allowed two goals on 24 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout victory at Vegas, his 300th career win.

Ward is the 32nd goaltender in NHL history to reach 300 victories. He and the Hurricanes didn't have a lot of success last season in the shootout, and they dropped their past three games by one goal. So this was an impressive show of moxie by the young Hurricanes, beating one of the league's best teams at home so far this season. Ward has now won two of his past three starts.
Dec 13 - 1:18 AM

Cam Ward will start Tuesday's match against Vegas.

Ward will get the second half of the back-to-back after Scott Darling was in the cage for a 3-2 loss to Anaheim. He allowed five goals to the Sharks to a 5-4 OT loss back on Dec. 7 in his last appearance.
