Player Notes

  • Chad Johnson makes 36 saves in win over FLA
    Chad Johnson stopped 36 of 38 shots in Friday's 4-2 win over the Florida Panthers.

    Advice: Tonight was Johnson's first start in five games, as he's taken a bit of a back seat to Brian Elliott. Johnson allowed both goals in the first period, but he was able to shut the door the rest of the way. He now has a 18-13-1 record with a 2.54 goals-against-average and a .913 save percentage. Yesterday, 7:55 pm
  • Eddie Lack blanks Senators on Friday night
    Eddie Lack turned aside all 34 shots he faced in Friday's 3-0 win over the Ottawa Senators.

He has a 2-3-1 record with a 3.26 goals-against-average and a .884 save percentage. With the Hurricanes out of the playoff race, they could opt to give him quite a few starts down the stretch.

  • Cam Talbot allows 2 goals in loss to Capitals
    Cam Talbot allowed two goals on 25 shots in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Washington Capitals.
