Stalking the Standings

The Hurricanes secured a must-win game in Toronto last night by a final score of 4-1. Elsewhere, the Canes got help from the Boston Bruins, who took down the Blue Jackets, but the Canadiens were less willing to take one for the team as they defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning on home ice.

Tonight’s action will be much less important for the Canes and the Eastern Conference playoff race. The big action will resume on Thursday.
