Following a disappointing loss to the New York Rangers at home on Saturday, the Hurricanes will look to get back on track with a trip to Capitol Hill tonight.

The team did not hold a morning skate, and Rod Brind’Amour will speak to the media a little before 5 p.m., so at this point it’s unknown if there will be changes from Saturday’s group.

On the other side, the Hurricanes will face a Capitals team with a glaring absence: Washington announced this morning that captain Alex Ovechnkin is stepping away from the team to attend a family situation and the health of a loved one.

Washington will go with Darcy Kuemper in net.
