Wrap Up

The Hurricanes are in the midst of a push to win the Metropolitan Division as they currently sit six points back of the New York Rangers with a game in hand. They will also face the Rangers one more time this season and that game will come on Tuesday. The addition of Guentzel provides more scoring to the Hurricanes and makes them one of the favorites in the Eastern Conference if the defense and goaltending can hold up. Spencer Martin has been a steal in net since signing with the Hurricanes appearing in five games and going 4-0-1 with a 1.97 GAA and a .922 save percentage. Tonight they also got Andersen back and he played in five games going 4-1-0 with a 2.87 GAA and a .894 save percentage.
