Recap: Canes Earn Point in 4-3 Overtime Loss to Wings

by Michael Smith @MSmithCanes / CarolinaHurricanes.com

Analysis from Raleigh

→ The result of the game - a vital one considering the nature of the Eastern Conference playoff race - is one thing. But sometimes that's secondary to the health and well-being of one of the players, as is the case tonight.

The Carolina Hurricanes earned a point in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Detroit Red Wings to extend their point streak to 11 games (7-0-4), but goaltender Eddie Lack suffered an injury on the final play of the game and was wheeled off the ice on a stretcher.

"It's hard to think about the game," Jordan Staal said. "Our thoughts and prayers are with Eddie right now."

"I'm not really thinking about [the game]. Just worried about Eddie. I think everyone in this room is," Justin Faulk said. "Hoping he's OK. The game is one thing, but there are some things that are more important."

by Michael Smith @MSmithCanes / CarolinaHurricanes.com

Analysis from New Jersey

→ The Carolina Hurricanes capped an incredibly successful four-game road trip with a 3-1 win over the New Jersey Devils. Jeff Skinner tallied the game-winning goal, Sebastian Aho added a pair and Eddie Lack made 26 saves as the Hurricanes extended their point streak to 10 games (7-0-3).

"It's a big win for us late in the road trip. It was a tight game up until the end. Everyone contributed again. All four lines were going," Skinner said. "After the second goal we got a huge kill by the PK, and Eddie made some huge stops coming down the stretch. We were able to put it away with Fishy with a big goal for us. It's a big win, and now we've got to go home and follow this up."

"We've got some good confidence," Aho said. "We have lots of players who are playing good right now, and we have two great goalkeepers who give us a chance to win every night."
