Jaccob Slavin led the Carolina Hurricanes with seven shots on goal Sunday.

The defenseman had only 32 in 24 games heading into action Sunday so this came out of nowhere. Slavin has a goal and seven points in 25 games and while he has some offensive upside, it hasn't translated into points thus far.
Dec 5 - 7:21 AM

Cam Ward steered aside all 30 shots he faced on Sunday as the Canes topped the Bolts 1-0 in an overtime thriller.

Ward, who came into the game on a four game losing skid, shut down the Bolts' high scoring offense to lead the Canes to a much-needed win. The topsy-turvy veteran is now 8-7-4 this season with a 2.09 goals against average and .924 save percentage.
Dec 5 - 12:08 AM

Phil Di Giuseppe chose an ideal time to bury his first goal of the season on Sunday; 3:34 into overtime to lift the Canes over Tampa Bay.

Di Giuseppe's first point of the season, in his 15th game, broke a 0-0 deadlock that lasted more than 60 minutes. The Canes snapped a three game losing streak with the thrilling win.
Dec 4 - 11:59 PM

Elias Lindholm will be joined by Klas Dahlbeck and Ryan Murphy in the press box against Tampa Bay on Sunday.

Lindholm is still out with a lower body injury, while the two defenders have simply lost their spot in the rotation as the Hurricanes try to climb back into playoff contention.

Jordan Staal (concussion) will skate by himself on Monday.

He's missed the last week due to a concussion. Coach Bill Peters noted that Staal could join the team on their one-day roadie to Buffalo on Thursday. We'll keep you posted.
Dec 4 - 2:56 PM

It'll be Cam Ward's turn in net on Sunday against Tampa Bay.

Through 18 games this season, Ward has managed to turn back the clock. He's 7-7-4 with a 2.21 GAA and a .919 save percentage thus far, and has not finished with a SV% that high since 2010-11 (.923%) and has never finished with a GAA below 2.40.
Dec 4 - 2:53 PM

Brock McGinn is finally in the books.

In his eighth game of the season, McGinn finally recorded his first point - an assist. Through the first 29 games of his career he has just five points. Patience, grasshopper.
Dec 3 - 7:37 PM

With his assist during Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Rangers, Derek Ryan now has points in three of his last five games.

The older rookie now has four points in 11 games this season. He'll never win the Art Ross, but the story of Derek Ryan continues to blossom.
Dec 3 - 7:36 PM

Jaccob Slavin picked up his seventh point of the season during Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Rangers.

It was his sixth helper of the season. Through the first 87 games of his career, the talented defender has just 27 points. While he could find his scoring touch eventually, we wouldn't expect a sudden surge.
Dec 3 - 7:34 PM

Victor Rask ended his six-game goal drought during Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Rangers.

The 23-year-old is now up to nine goals and 18 points 24 games this season. He scored 21 goals and 48 points last season.
Dec 3 - 7:33 PM

Viktor Stalberg scored his third goal of the week against one of his former clubs, the New York Rangers.

In fact, he's now posted four goals over his last four games. Which gives him seven goals and eight points in 23 games this season. Hopefully this is the start of a season-long trend for the veteran.
Dec 3 - 7:31 PM

Michael Leighton put forth a valiant effort in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Rangers.

Leighton stopped 19 of 23 shots with just one asked of him while on the kill. The veteran netminder has now stopped 50 of 56 total shots since returning to the ranks of the NHL, which is pretty good by any standard for a backup.
Dec 3 - 7:29 PM

The Hurricanes will be without Elias Lindholm against the Rangers on Saturday due to a lower body injury.

Through 23 games this season he's posted just seven points while seeing a career high of 18:19 of average ice time. Perhaps a step back from the game can help shake the poor start to his season.
Dec 3 - 12:55 PM

Michael Leighton will face the Rangers on Saturday afternoon.

After stopping 31 of 33 shots in the win over Florida last week, Leighton gets his second start of the season for Carolina. The Hurricanes have played the Rangers well this season despite splitting the two games, so this could be a sneaky play for anyone in exceptionally deep pools.
