Cam Ward made 23 saves on 25 shots in a lengthy relief appearance on Sunday.

After Carolina fell behind 3-0 to Vegas early on, Ward finished the game in the 5-1 loss. He gets a no-decision in the defeat, keeping his record at 12-5-2 with a 2.75 goals against average and .907 save percentage.

Scott Darling got the yank early on in Sunday's 5-1 loss to Vegas.

Darling allowed three goals on eight shots in the first period, landing him a spot on the bench. At 9-13-6 with a 3.02 goals against average and .892 save percentage, Darling's performance just won't cut it if he hopes to see regular playing time down the stretch.

Jaccob Slavin scored Carolina's lone goal in a 5-1 loss to Vegas on Sunday.

Slavin has four goals and 13 points in 47 games this season. The 23-year-old's production has taken a hit from last year's 34-point campaign.

Scott Darling has been confirmed as the Hurricanes' starter for Sunday's game against Vegas.

Darling was already projected to get the nod, but now Hurricanes coach Bill Peters has named his starter so we know for sure. Darling has a 9-12-6 record, 2.94 GAA, and .894 save percentage in 28 contests this season.

Derek Ryan returned to action Saturday night after missing two games with an upper-body injury and stepped into Hurricanes' second-line center role.

Ryan played between Jeff Skinner and Lee Stempniak on the Canes' second unit. Although he has registered a modest 23 points in 44 games this season, Ryan is someone you should be monitoring.

Scott Darling is the Hurricanes' probable starting goalie for Sunday evening's encounter with Vegas.

Cam Ward started and won Saturday night's contest against Detroit, so coach Bill Peters might turn to Darling in the second half of the back-to-back situation. For the season, Darling has a poor 9-12-6 record with a 2.94 GAA and an .894 save percentage.

Elias Lindholm scores two goals in a 3-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night.

Tonight marked the first multi-goal game of the season, and his first since Jan. 2016. The Canes also got a goal from Justin Williams in the victory. Lindholm now has 14 goals and 27 points in 45 games this season for Carolina.

Cam Ward made 23 saves on 24 shots in a 3-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night.

Derek Ryan will suit up in Saturday's game against the Detroit Red Wings.

Ryan missed two games because of an upper-body injury, but he'll be back after getting the bye week to rest up. He has nine goals and 23 points in 43 games this season.
Jan 20 - 6:45 PM

Sebastian Aho won't suit up in Saturday's game against the Red Wings.

Aho was diagnosed with a concussion and a lower-body injury on Sunday. It's the first time he misses a game in his young NHL career. He's out indefinitely for now.

Cam Ward will get the start in Saturday's game against the Red Wings.

Ward comes into tonight's game having dropped each of his last three decisions. He has an 11-5-2 record with a 2.85 goals-against-average and a .904 save percentage this season.
Jan 20 - 6:22 PM

The Carolina Hurricanes have announced that Roland McKeown has been recalled from the AHL.

McKeown played two games with the Hurricanes earlier in the year, picking up two assists but averaged less than 10 minutes a game. He has some upside but should not be owned in any fantasy formats. The 22-year-old has 13 points in 37 games with the Charlotte Checkers.
Jan 20 - 5:57 PM

Derek Ryan could return to the Hurricanes' lineup in one of the team's two games this weekend.

Ryan, who sustained an upper-body injury a week ago after being checked into the boards by the Capitals' Tom Wilson and missed last Sunday's 4-1 loss to Calgary, has nine goals and 23 points in 43 games this season. Get ready to activate him if you need him.
Jan 20 - 9:44 AM

Brett Pesce (upper body) might be able to return to the Carolina lineup this weekend.

Pesce, who is recovering from an upper-body injury, could return to action Saturday against Detroit or Sunday against Vegas. For the season, the rearguard has nine assists in 39 games which is about on par with his 20 points in 82 games in 2016-17. Check back with closer to Saturday's 7:00 pm ET puck drop to see if Pesce has dressed for the contest.
