In a do-or-die Game 5, the Carolina Hurricanes could get an injection of offense into their lineup.

Nino Niederreiter, who practiced with the Canes on Monday, and Vincent Trocheck will both take warm-ups and are "hopeful" to play, according to head coach Rod Brind'Amour. Meanwhile, Warren Foegele is "50-50" with an upper-body injury.
