Hurricanes Newsstand — April 22

In Game 4, the Hurricanes — courtesy Tim Gleason and Joe Corvo — were able to neutralize Zach Parise and the Devils' top line en route to a dramatic 4-3 last-second victory. While Carolina will need to keep their emotions in check heading into Game 5 in Newark, New Jersey will have to shake off a difficult defeat that left goalie Martin Brodeur frustrated and their fans wondering if the the final goal should have counted.

The series' fifth game will present another challenge to the Canes since they won't get get the final line change and the ability to freely matchup Gleason and Corvo against the Parise line.

In the CHL, Belleville blew a third-period lead and lost to Brampton. They now trail the series 3-1.

The NHL's goalie interference rule sets a mandate to protect the goalie in the blue ice – to let the goalie do his job. In the white ice, it is a more delicate matter, including who moved into whom. The referee has one split-second look at it and it is a judgment call. NHL Hockey Operations has no video review capacity in this instance.  Hockey Operations officials agreed with the call on the ice, that it looked like the goalie, Martin Brodeur, moved out toward the skater. Hurricanes 4, Devils 3 • Jokinen's goal an instant classic
