Mired in a four-game skid, and with their lead atop the Metropolitan Division down to two points, the Hurricanes will look to get back in the win column in Columbus tonight.

The team did not hold a morning skate today, so it’s not yet known if there will be any lineup changes from Tuesday night’s loss to the Devils. It’s possible Frederik Andersen, activated from injured reserve, could make his return to action in net. We’ll learn more from Rod Brind’Amour later this afternoon.
