Hurricanes Newsstand — April 6

The Hurricanes clinched a playoff berth for the first time since the 2005-06 season with their overtime win Saturday over Pittsburgh. The team's focus is now on a battle for fourth place in the Eastern Conference and first-round home ice advantage.

Away from the NHL, the River Rats' slide continues and Carolina's CHL prospects have a rough weekend in the semifinals of the playoffs.
