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."
