Cam Ward allowed four goals on 19 shots in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Ward lasted just a period and a half in this one. The loss puts an end to Carolina's four-game winning streak. It's the fourth time in five games that Ward allows more than three goals in a game. Ward has an 18-13-6 record with a 2.42 goals-against-average and a .912 save percentage. Alex Nedeljkovic stopped all 17 shots he faced in relief of Ward.

Sebastian Aho scored a goal in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Aho opened the scoring at the 18:06 mark of the first period. The 19-year-old has is up to 11 goals and 24 points in 44 games this season. Teuvo Teravainen and Lee Stempniak picked up the assists on Carolina's only goal.

He's played in three games since being claimed from St. Louis. Rattie has one assist during that span. Ryan Murphy and Kla Dahlbeck will also watch the game from the press box.

Cam Ward will be between the pipes for Tuesday's game against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Ward will enter tonight's game on a four-game winning streak. Even though he's rattled off four in a row, he's given up three goals or more in three of those victories. He has an 18-12-6 record with a 2.34 goals-against-average and a .915 save percentage this season.

Ron Hainsey (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision Tuesday.

"He wasn't good to go this morning, but we're hoping he's able to go," coach Bill Peters said. "We'll know at warm-up and make a decision after." If he can't play then Klas Dahlbeck will draw into the lineup.

Michael Leighton has been reassigned to AHL Charlotte.

Leighton has been serving as the Hurricanes' backup goaltender, but he's only actually appeared in three games. Sending Leighton to the minors is a way to get him some ice time to keep him sharp and with that in mind, Leighton might be recalled in the near future.
Jan 17 - 4:26 AM

Alex Nedeljkovic has been called up by the Carolina Hurricanes.

Nedeljkovic might be up for a short amount of time as the Hurricanes' motivation could simply be to get Michael Leighton a bit of ice time in the AHL. Leighton was sent to the minors in a corresponding move and the two netminders could swap positions again in a matter of days.

Eddie Lack (concussion) took part in Monday's practice.

Lack sustained his second concussion on Dec. 28. There's no known timetable for his return, which is expected when talking about a concussion, but obviously practicing with the Hurricanes is a very good sign.
Jan 16 - 12:07 PM

Bryan Bickell, who has multiple sclerosis, took part in Monday's practice.

Bickell hasn't played since Oct. 30, but this is obviously a step in the right direction. It's not yet known when he'll be able to return to the Hurricanes' lineup.

The Carolina Hurricanes have found another line to score with Brock McGinn, Jordan Staal and Elias Lindholm.

The trio combined for 10 points Saturday with McGinn leading the way with a goal and three assists. He has seven points in his last three games and with those stats, it is hard to resist not picking him up or even one of his linemates.

The Carolina Hurricanes are 14-1-1 in their last 16 games at home.

We guess they sure like that home cooking as teams do not look forward to playing the Canes in Raleigh. "Everybody is having fun right now," Carolina forward Brock McGinn said. "We’re in the hunt for the playoffs and these are big games, big points every time you step on the ice. The home fans can definitely motivate you that much more."
Jan 15 - 8:13 AM

Jordan Staal had a three point night on Saturday.

The center has been coming on of late and is on a four game points streak in which he has two goals and seven points. Staal has nine goals and 23 points in 36 games and is showing his offensive upside that was really last seen in Pittsburgh in 2011-12 when he had 25 goals and 50 points in 62 games. He is worth a pickup now.
Jan 15 - 8:11 AM

Elias Lindholm scored once and added two assists in the Hurricanes 7-4 win Saturday.

Lindholm did all his damage on the first three goals and is now up to five goals and 18 points in 33 games as he is on a five game points streak in which he has three goals and seven points. He has been playing alongside Jordan Staal and Brock McGinn and the trio have been lighting it up of late. Lindholm could be worth a pick up in most pools right now.
Jan 15 - 8:08 AM

Jeff Skinner was held off the scoresheet despite the Carolina Hurricanes scoring seven times Saturday.

Skinner had a couple of goals in a 5-2 win Friday but was unable to connect Saturday. He has 17 goals and 35 points in 42 games this season and should be on someone's roster in all but the shallowest of fantasy pools at this time.
Jan 15 - 7:55 AM

Cam Ward gave up four goals on 32 shots Saturday night, but it was enough to give the Hurricanes a 7-4 win over the Islanders.

With a save percentage of .875 and GAA of 4.00, Ward did not do his owners much good. This was the second time in the past three games that he fell below the .900 mark and the fifth time in his last 10 that he had a save percentage in the .800s
