Faulk discusses keys to Hurricanes turnaround

Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Justin Faulk was a guest of NHL Live to discuss the team's current hot stretch.

The Hurricanes are 5-0-1 since starting the season 0-6-2 and host the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday.

"I think we're just playing together as a team," Faulk said. "We've kind of had the system in place since the start of training camp, but I think we're starting to understand it and come together more. When we have 20 guys that show up and compete for 60 to 65 minutes every night, good things have been happening for us. We've been pretty happy with the month so far."

Flames' Giordano on surprising start, chemistry

Calgary Flames defenseman Mark Giordano joined NHL Live to discuss his strong start to the season and the surprising success of the Flames, who are 9-6-2 and in third place in the Pacific Division.

"It's been a good start," Giordano said. "As a team I think we're playing a high pace style of play and moving the pucks forward. The defensemen on our team pressure the puck so much on the back check that we can jump in as D-men when there's turnovers. That's been huge for me and [T.J. Brodie], but as well as our other D. [Kris Russell] and [Dennis Weidman] and [Ladislav Smid] have been really good at moving the puck up the ice and jumping in.

"It's been tough in the NHL these days to score off the rush so you need that second wave and I think we've done a good job of it this year."

Erie's McDavid out 5-6 weeks with hand fracture

Erie Otters forward Connor McDavid fractured the fifth metacarpal bone in his right hand during a game Tuesday against the Mississauga Steelheads, the Otters announced Wednesday.

McDavid does not need surgery and is expected to be sidelined 5-6 weeks.

A likely top-two pick in the 2015 NHL Draft, McDavid scored a point in all but one game for Erie this season and has 16 goals and 51 points in 18 games.

"It's obviously terrible news for our team," Otters forward Dylan Strome said Wednesday on NHL Live. "He's our heart and soul. He's our leader, he's our best player"

At the Rink: Sharks at Panthers

San Jose Sharks forward Tomas Hertl was back on the top line Tuesday at the morning skate prior to the game at BB&T Center against the Florida Panthers, according to the San Jose Mercury News.

Hertl skated with Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski, and Matt Nieto was moved onto a line with James Sheppard and Tyler Kennedy.

"We think Tomas has worked hard, he's had chemistry with those two in the past and worked his way back into that opportunity, and he'll get it [Tuesday]," Sharks coach Todd McLellan said, according to the Mercury News. "I think Nieto and Kennedy can add a lot of speed to Sheppard's line. That's the thought process behind it. Will it work? We'll see."

Islanders forward Nielsen on shootout success

New York Islanders forward Frans Nielsen was a guest of NHL Live to talk about the early-season success of a team currently in second place in the Metropolitan Division.

A big part of Nielsen's game is his success in the shootout, where his 54.8 percent conversion rate is third-best among active players.

"I had a good move going there the past couple of years, the backhand," Nielsen said. "It just seemed to work and now the goalies are starting to figure it out so I had to change it up a little bit. It's still going in and I still enjoy it. It's a fun thing. I like the pressure of the game on the line."

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.

— Capitals defenseman Mike Green on teammate Alex Ovechkin's highlight-reel goal against the Devils on Saturday
