Petr Mrazek allowed three goals on 26 shots during Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Mrazek had arguably the best save of the night, somehow getting across in time on a two-on-one chance to rob the Lightning of a goal. Carolina's goaltender was also involved in a scary incident when he was caught by Nikita Kucherov's stick in the throat/face region, luckily he was ok after being tended to by the medical staff. Mrazek will start the year with a 1-2-1 record, a 3.07 goals-against-average and a .874 save percentage.

Martin Necas scored a goal during Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Skating in on a two-on-one, Necas somehow got a one-timer off from a feed by Warren Foegele for his first NHL goal. Necas, the 12th overall pick from the 2017 NHL Entry Draft has plenty of offensive upside but likely won't have fantasy value this season with his limited ice-time (averaging 10:01 per game). Micheal Ferland also scored in the loss.

Petr Mrazek is slated to start on Tuesday night against Tampa Bay.

Mrazek is set to make his second straight start after he played well in Sunday's loss to Winnipeg. He has a 1-1-1 record this year with a 3.05 goals-against average and .870 save percentage.

Sebastian Aho was named the NHL's third star of the week.

The Hurricanes forward picked up an impressive three goals and four assists last week. The 21-year-old has already racked up four goals and 11 points in six contests this season. It looks like he'll be the go-to guy for the 'Canes offensively this year.

Andrei Svechnikov had a team-leading seven shots on goal Sunday.

The Hurricanes threw everything but the kitchen sink at Laurent Brossoit in the Winnipeg net as he stopped 42-of-43 shots in the 3-1 loss to the Jets but no one had as many as the rookie. Svechnikov, the second overall pick in the 2018 Draft has two goals and four points in six games thus far but had only nine shots on goal in his first five games before Sunday's outbreak. He is a keeper.

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. In fact, it took a second effort chance from Ferland who put away a rebound from Dougie Hamilton's shot for his third goal of the season. 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.
Oct 14 - 10:01 PM

Valentin Zykov will be in the lineup Sunday against the Winnipeg Jets.

The Hurricanes are rolling with the same lineup as Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over the Minnesota Wild, so Zykov will play despite logging just 4:43 of ice time. Phillip Di Giuseppe will be in the press box.
Oct 14 - 6:46 PM

Petr Mrazek will start Sunday night against Winnipeg.

The Hurricanes had Curtis McElhinney between the pipes for Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over Minnesota, so Mrazek will play the second half of the back-to-back situation. He has a 1-0-1 record this season with a 3.53 goals-against average and .841 save percentage.
Oct 14 - 5:29 PM

Curtis McElhinney allowed four goals on 23 shots during Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over the Minnesota Wild.

McElhinney has started off his Hurricanes career with three wins in as many starts, putting pressure on the Hurricanes to keep him around when Scott Darling (lower body) returns from his absence. McElhinney now owns a 2.65 goals-against-average and a .900 save percentage.
Oct 13 - 9:15 PM

Sebastian Aho scored two goals and assisted on another during Saturday’s 5-4 overtime win over the Minnesota Wild.

With Aho’s assist on Brett Pesce’s goal, he became the fifth player in team history to start the season with a five-game point streak. Aho then followed that up by hammering home the rebound on the power play for his third goal of the season and capped off his night with the overtime winner with just over two minutes left in the extra frame. It was a terrific night from the Hurricanes, who needed 57 shots to come away with the win. The 21-year-old Finn is now up to nine points in five games this season. Jordan Staal and Justin Williams also scored in the win.

Curtis McElhinney could be the Carolina Hurricanes number one goalie.

The Hurricane started training camp with Scott Darling and Petr Mrazek as their NHL netminders but an injury to Darling which should keep him on the shelf for another couple of weeks, and Mrazek being Mrazek, has given the opportunity for McElhinney and he has not looked back with a couple of wins in two games. He has a 2-0 record with a 2.00 GAA and a .930 save percentage for the suddenly hot Carolina Hurricanes. Ride him while you can.
Oct 12 - 4:43 AM

Warren Foegele is fitting in nicely on the wing with Jordan Staal and Justin Williams.

The rookie has three goals and an assist in four games this season. "I’m fortunate to have two great linemates that make my job pretty easy," Foegele said. "They tell me what to do and how to improve and it’s been a lot of fun playing with those two. A couple of times I’m like, ‘Wow, this is pretty cool.’" He is likely still on your waiver wire and should be considered in deeper leagues.
Oct 12 - 4:30 AM

Brett Pesce found the back of the net Tuesday night.

It was Pesce's first goal and point in four games this season. Given that he has just 10 goals in 220 career NHL contests, we naturally don't expect many more nights like this out of him in 2018-19.
Oct 10 - 5:35 AM

Teuvo Teravainen is on a three-game point streak.

Teravainen kept that run going by recording two assists Tuesday night. He's up to a goal and four points in four games. Teravainen set a career-high in 2017-18 with 64 points.
