After losing in double overtime in New York in Game 4 on Saturday, the Carolina Hurricanes have another shot at eliminating the Islanders from the Stanley Cup Playoffs in Raleigh tomorrow.

Why it matters: The matchup against the Islanders has been incredibly close and physical each game. The Canes had a chance to sweep them and get several days of rest if they had managed to win in sudden death.

What they're saying: "They're back in it. We gave them some hope here now," Hurricanes head coach Rod Brind'Amour said, according to ESPN.

  • "We've talked about how tough it is to win four games in a row, especially with the game being as even as they are," he added. "It could have gone either way in the previous three. We expected it to be a long series and now we've just got to focus on the next one."

What's next: The puck drops at PNC Arena at 7:30pm on Tuesday.
