Hurricanes' penalty-kill

Watch what the Red Wings' power play does in tonight's game in Carolina. The table is set for Detroit to break through with the man-advantage after getting one goal in its first eight opportunities this season.

The Hurricanes don't have a good penalty-kill. They've allowed four goals in 13 opportunities this season (69% kill rate). Last season, the 'Canes were 26th in the 30-team NHL on the PK, allowing 75 goals (79% kill rate).

Carolina's top penalty-killers are defensemen Niclas Wallin and Tim Gleason and forwards Chad LaRose (a native of Fraser), rookie Brandon Sutter, Ryan Bayda and Eric Staal.

The Red Wings will stick with the same PP units they've used the first two games ...
