Manny Malhotra would like to re-sign with the Carolina Hurricanes.

Carolina gave Malhotra a chance to extend his career after the Vancouver Canucks shut him down due to an eye injury. He had 13 points and a 59.5% success rate on the draw in 69 games this season.

Mike Komisarek picked up two assists on Sunday.

Komisarek doubled his point count this season in Sunday's game as he will end the season with four assists in 32 games. He has no fantasy value but it was nice to see the blueliner have a nice offensive outburst.

Eric Staal scored twice to lead the Carolina Hurricanes to a 6-5 shootout win over Philadelphia.

Staal ends the season with 21 goals and 61 points as he had six shots on goal Sunday. It was a fair season for Staal as much more was expected of him offensively, especially on the power play where he managed to score only once all season.

Thanks to the Carolina Hurricanes' 6-5 (SO) win against the Philadelphia Flyers, Anton Khudobin notched his 19th win of the season.

Injuries and commitments to Cam Ward limited Khudobin to 36 games played, but he showed why he might be "the guy" in Carolina going forward, as he improved his record to 19-14-1 with a strong .926 save percentage and 2.30 GAA on the season.

Carolina Hurricanes winger Jeff Skinner scored two goals on Sunday to set a new career-high with 33 goals.

Skinner edges the 31 tallies he collected as a rookie in 2010-11, although he didn't top the 63 points he generated in that impressive campaign. Skinner managed an impressive average being that he was limited to 71 contests, including easily the most SOG (274) of his career. If he can keep firing away next season, he could easily flirt with 40 goals next season.

Anton Khudobin will play between the pipes on Sunday.

Khudobin will try to snap his two game losing streak. Although this has been a disappointing season for Carolina, he's been great with a 2.23 GAA and .927 save percentage in 35 games.

The Carolina Hurricanes power play is ranked 28th overall and a big reason for that is Eric Staal who has scored only once this season.

Staal had six seasons of double digit power play goals before the 2011-12 season but this is his worst season to date. "Too often it was like we were trying to score the perfect goal on the power play when we needed some dirty goals," GM Jim Rutherford said. Staal has only 19 goals and 59 points this season, his worst since he was a rookie. Look for a bounce back season in 2014-15 as Staal is only 29.

Zach Boychuk has been reassigned to the minors.

He suited up in Friday's game against Detroit in his 11th NHL appearance of the season. Boychuk has a goal and three assists with the Hurricanes this season.
Apr 12 - 5:10 PM

Carolina has signed college free agent Patrick Brown to a two-year, entry-level deal.

He produced 15 goals and 30 points in 40 games for Boston College during his senior season in 2013-14. Brown was the team's captain and his father, Doug, played 15 seasons in the NHL.

Andrej Sekera underwent abdominal surgery on Friday.

He will require about six weeks of recovery time. Sekera had the most productive season of his NHL career in 2013-14. He generated 11 goals and 44 points in 74 games to lead Carolina's defensemen in scoring and place himself third on the team.
Apr 12 - 11:41 AM

Elias Lindholm netted a power-play goal in Friday's 2-1 win over Detroit.

Andrei Loktionov and Jay Harrison assisted on the rookie's ninth goal of the season. Lindholm has 20 points in 57 games with the Hurricanes this season.
Apr 12 - 11:23 AM

Cam Ward denied 28 of 29 shots directed his way on Friday night to lift the Hurricanes to a 2-1 victory over the Red Wings.

Ward notches his first victory in three appearances and his fifth in the past 14. Ward is 10-12-6 in what has been a rough season where he owns a .898 save percentage and 3.06 goals against average.
Apr 11 - 10:46 PM

Jiri Tlusty's winning goal helped Carolina defeat Detroit on the road in the regular season for the first time in 25 years on Friday night.

Tlusty's 16th marker of the season put the Canes up 2-0 late in the first period, and Carolina held on to win 2-1. Tlusty now has 28 points in 62 games this season, a step back from his impressive 38 points in 48 games last year.
Apr 11 - 10:27 PM

Justin Faulk recorded an assist in a 5-2 loss to Washington Thursday night.

Faulk has five goals and 24 assists in 74 games this season. His 29 points is a new career-high, but we think he can top it in 2014-15.
