The Hurricanes will see their fourth straight series — and second this season — decided by a Game 7. With their Game 5 victory and win Tuesday, the Bruins erased 3-1 series deficit to force a deciding game back in Boston. Cam Ward, who has looked solid but human the past two games, holds a 3-0 record in Game 7s. Carolina will likely need him outduel Tim Thomas to have a chance at advancing.
