Petr Mrazek allowed two goals on 25 shots during Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Winnipeg Jets.

Mrazek had arguably the best save of the night, denying a couple of Jets' skaters on a two-on-zero chance where he somehow got a piece of the puck with his blocker. The 26-year-old goaltender will see his record fall to 1-1-1 with a 3.05 goals-against-average and a .870 save percentage. He'll continue to split starts with Curtis McElhinney and things will get interesting when Scott Darling (lower body) returns from his injury.

Micheal Ferland scored a goal during Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Winnipeg Jets.

The Hurricanes came out flying with 18 shots in the first period and a total of 43 for the game but had a hard time solving Laurent Brossoit tonight.

The 26-year-old Ferland came to Carolina from Calgary in the blockbuster five-player deal and has started off the season with six points in as many games.

Laine's goal snapped his three-game pointless streak and he now finds himself at three points in five games.
