Hobbled Hurricanes look to even series with Capitals

The Carolina Hurricanes are hurting going into Game 4 of the series against the Washington Capitals at home in Raleigh, N.C.

How the Hurricanes manage to compensate for those injuries undoubtedly holds the key to Thursday night's game at PNC Arena. The Capitals hold a 2-1 series lead, though they lost 5-0 in Monday night's third game.

The issues for the Hurricanes come from injuries to rookie Andrei Svechnikov, who was knocked out by the Capitals' Alex Ovechkin in a fight, and winger Micheal Ferland.
