The Carolina Hurricanes still have an outside shot of making the playoffs.

It didn't seem possible not that long ago, but the Hurricanes have gone on a 8-0-4 run to push themselves into the picture. Even with that run they still have an uphill battle ahead of them as Carolina remains four points back in the Wild Card race with seven games left in their schedule. Still, if they can find a way to keep their current hot streak going, then anything's possible. They'll face the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday.

Sebastian Aho registered an assist in a 4-1 win over Detroit.

Aho has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last eight games. He has 23 goals and 47 points in 75 games this season. That puts him in a tie for fifth place in the rookie scoring race.
Mar 29 - 9:24 AM

Elias Lindholm found the back of the net in a 4-1 win against Detroit.

Lindholm saw his 10-game win streak come to an end on Monday, but he bounced right back Tuesday. He's up to 11 goals and 43 points in 65 contests this season.
Mar 29 - 9:22 AM

Cam Ward stopped 21 of 22 shots in a 4-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings.

Ward always had the upper-hand going into this one with the Red Wings playing their third game in as many nights. He has now not suffered a regulation loss in his last seven starts, going 4-0-3 during that stretch. The win improves his record to 25-20-11 on the year with a 2.69 goals against average and .905 save percentage.
Mar 28 - 10:00 PM

Justin Faulk picked up a couple of helpers in a 4-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday.

Faulk picked up his first assist on Lee Stempniak's opening goal of the game and then picked up his second on Elias Lindholm's power play marker. Faulk finished the home and home against Detroit with two goals and two assists. He is now up to 35 points in 68 games this season for the Hurricanes. With Jaccob Slavin's emergence in Carolina, Faulk has seen his ice time drop slightly and his point total as well. As always, Faulk continues to bring points to your fantasy lineup but hurts your plus/minus.

Matt Tennyson will be back on the blue line on Tuesday against Detroit.

The 26-year-old has posted five points with 34 blocks and 46 hits in 37 games so far this season.

Alex Nedeljkovic has been called up from the ECHL on an emergency basis.

He is expected to serve as Cam Ward's backup after Eddie Lack was injured Monday night. Nedeljkovic made his NHL debut in relief on Jan. 17 at Columbus. He turned aside all 17 shots faced in a 4-1 loss.
Mar 28 - 11:19 AM

After being taken off the ice on a stretcher on Monday, Eddie Lack later tweeted that "everything looks alright."

Lack added that he would be released from the hospital Monday night. He was hurt when Detroit's Andreas Athanasiou crashed into him on the play that resulted in the overtime winner. It's encouraging that Lack was feeling up to tweeting and didn't stay too long in the hospital, especially given that he has already dealt with concussions this season.
