The Carolina Hurricanes will attempt to stave off a series sweep when they host the Boston Bruins in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final.

After winning six straight playoff games, the Hurricanes have dropped three consecutive contests to the Bruins, the most recent of which was a 2-1 final at PNC Arena on Tuesday.

"Being down 3-0 creates an opportunity for yourself, and that's the way you have to look at it. You have to instill a little bit of doubt. That's the first step," Justin Williams said. "We've been hit three times here. It takes four to knock us down. We're just going to keep showing up and see what happens."

"A large chunk of that game was really positive for us. Really, it was a small fraction that wasn't very good," head coach Rod Brind'Amour said. "At the end of the day, it's 1-0 them, right? So, you move on."
