It's the first point since Dec. 15 for DeAngelo, who's played in four straight games for Carolina after serving as a healthy scratch for much of the year.

  • Hurricanes' Spencer Martin: Falls in shootout

    Martin allowed two goals on 32 shots in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Sabres on Sunday.

    Martin was sharp Sunday, holding Buffalo to a Jeff Skinner power-play tally in the second period and an Owen Power marker in the final frame. However, the 28-year-old netminder would ultimately take the loss in a shootout. It's the first loss for Martin in four starts since joining Carolina. Overall, Martin's 6-8-2 with an .895 save percentage and 3.21 GAA across 17 appearances between the Hurricanes and Blue Jackets this season.

  • Hurricanes' Jalen Chatfield: Out Sunday

  • Hurricanes' Spencer Martin: Tending twine Sunday

    Martin will guard the road net Sunday against Buffalo, per Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site.

    Martin will get the second half of Carolina's back-to-back after Pyotr Kochetkov played in Saturday's 2-1 loss to Dallas. The 28-year-old Martin has stopped 69 of 75 shots en route to winning his previous three starts with the Hurricanes. Buffalo is tied for 21st in the league this campaign with 2.91 goals per contest.

  • Hurricanes' Tony DeAngelo: Back in lineup

    DeAngelo played his third consecutive game Saturday against the Stars, registering a pair of hits, a shot on goal and a blocked shot in 15:21 of ice time.

    DeAngelo hadn't played in three straight games since mid-December, having spent most of the last two months as a healthy scratch. Although he isn't contributing offensively as much as he once did, he's still moving the needle in the aforementioned peripheral stat categories, giving him modest fantasy value in deeper formats.

  • Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Falls to Dallas

    Kochetkov allowed two goals on 16 shots in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Stars.

    It wasn't the busiest outing for Kochetkov, but a Jason Robertson goal late in the first period and Wyatt Johnston's tally midway through the second were enough to stick the 24-year-old netminder with the loss. Kochetkov had been sharp coming into Saturday's contest, going 3-1-0 with a pair of shutouts and a .970 save percentage in his previous four outings. He's now 15-10-3 on the season with a .910 save percentage and 2.36 GAA.

  • Hurricanes' Jalen Chatfield: Out Saturday

    Chatfield (upper body) will miss Saturday's game against Dallas, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

    Chatfield was also absent for Carolina's previous two contests. He has five goals, 14 points, 41 hits and 44 blocks in 49 appearances this campaign. Chatfield is likely to serve on the third pairing, probably at the expense of Tony DeAngelo, once he's healthy.

  • Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Tending twine Saturday

    Kochetkov will patrol the home crease Saturday against Dallas, per Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer.

    Kochetkov is coming off a 44-save shutout victory against Florida on Thursday. He has won four of his past five outings, earning two shutouts and a .960 save percentage during that span. In 29 appearances this campaign, he has a 15-9-3 record with a 2.37 GAA and a .911 save percentage. Dallas is tied for second in the league this season with 3.64 goals per contest.

  • Hurricanes' Sebastian Aho: Pots seventh game-winner

    Aho scored his 21st goal of the season in Thursday's 1-0 win over the Panthers.

    The 26-year-old didn't wait for overtime to deliver his seventh game-winning goal of 2023-24, but he maintained his flair for the dramatic -- Aho jumped on a loose puck in the slot, spun around and went top shelf past Sergei Bobrovsky with only 19 seconds left in the third period. Aho is up to 21 goals and 60 points through 53 games this season, and Thursday's tally was the 52nd GWG of his career, putting him only five back of Hall of Famer Ron Francis for the all-time franchise lead. Francis needed 1,186 career games in a Whalers or Hurricanes sweater to accumulate his 57 winners, while Aho's racked up his in less than half that time (573 games).

  • Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Blanks Cats for third shutout

    Kochetkov stopped 44 shots in Thursday's 1-0 win over the Panthers.

    The 24-year-old netminder put on a dazzling display between the pipes in a goaltending duel with Sergei Bobrovsky, and Kochetkov got rewarded for his efforts when Sebastian Aho scored with just 19 seconds left in the third period. It's Kochetkov's second shutout in his last four starts and his third of the season, and since rejoining Carolina after the All-Star break, he's gone 4-2-0 with a 1.60 GAA and .946 save percentage.

  • Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Making home start

    Kochetkov will defend the blue paint during Thursday's home game versus Florida, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports.

    Kochetkov was excellent in his last appearance Friday against Arizona, stopping 30 of 31 shots en route to a 5-1 road victory. He'll try to pick up a second straight win in a brutal home matchup with a scorching-hot Panthers team that's won nine of its last 10 games and six straight.
