Hurricanes Newsstand — May 19

Losing Game 1 of a playoff series is nothing new to the Carolina Hurricanes. Losing their two power forwards is. The Canes found themselves down two wingers last night when both Tuomo Ruutu and Erik Cole were injured on leg-to-leg hits. Their status should be updated today. 

With two days off until Thursday's Game 2, Carolina can look back to last night's game and analyze their mistakes and successes and plan adjustments. The extra day off will give Ruutu, Cole and Pens d-man Sergei Gonchar a chance to rest up.
