Hurricanes go for second straight win

Dec 19, 2006 - 3:47 PM Carolina (16-14-4) at Philadelphia (8-20-4) 7:00 pm EST

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Both the Carolina Hurricanes and the Philadelphia Flyers have been losing a lot lately.

The difference is, Carolina finally won a game on Saturday to snap its four-game skid. The Flyers, who host the Hurricanes on Tuesday, are still looking for a win to break out of theirs.

Philadelphia has lost six straight, the latest a 4-1 loss to the Washington Capitals on Saturday. The Flyers, who have been outscored, 25-12, during their skid, got their only goal from Mike Knuble.

Peter Forsberg returned for Philadelphia after getting a skate which felt comfortable for his surgically-repaired right ankle. The Flyers' captain, Forsberg is likely to miss Tuesday's game with a concussion he suffered against the Capitals on Saturday on a hit from Washington's Alex Ovechkin.

The Hurricanes snapped their four-game losing streak with a 3-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Lighting on Saturday. Ray Whitney led Carolina with two goals while Eric Staal scored the other Hurricanes goal.

Carolina captain and former Flyer Rod Brind'Amour missed his fourth straight game with what the club stated was a lower body injury.
