Hurricanes Newsstand — March 20

The Hurricanes remain in eighth in the Eastern Conference playoff race after Montreal lost and Florida won last night. Tonight, Carolina plays the front end of back-to-back home games against the NHL's last place team, the New York Islanders.

Also, our condolences to Phil Janack, whose father passed away Wednesday. Phil is the Schnectady Daily Gazette's River Rats beat writer and his blog is one of the first places we go for our Rats news. Everyone at Canes Country sends our deepest sympathies.
