Lack allowed two goals on 26 shots in the Hurricanes win in Calgary on Thursday. It was a much better performance than his season debut and earned him a second straight start. Tonight he faces a Philadelphia team that has lost three straight games but they’ve been averaging 3.25 goals per game so far this season.

Mason allowed three goals on 26 shots in the Flyers loss to the Ducks on Thursday. Mason has yet to record a win in two starts and one relief appearance this season, while posting a 3.47 GAA and .875 SV% in the process. He draws a fairly tough matchup tonight against a Carolina team who is surprisingly averaging 3.25 goals per game to kick off this season.

The Hurricanes come into tonight in the Top 5 of both the power play at 31.2 percent and penalty kill at 93.8 percent. The Canes have scored five of their 13 total goals on the man-advantage, recording a power-play goal in three of their four games, while also killing off 11 straight penalties over the last three games, including six in their last game, a 4-2 win over Calgary.
