A 5-0 drubbing brought the Carolina Hurricanes back into the first-round Stanley Cup Playoff series, but the Capitals still lead 2-1. Will the Hurricanes draw even while they still have the advantage of playing at home, or will Washington move one step closer to advancing?

Opponent: Carolina Hurricanes (Capitals lead series 2-1)

When: Thursday, April 18, 7 p.m.



Where: PNC Arena, Raleigh, North Carolina

TV channel: NBC Sports Network, NBC Sports Washington

Radio: 106.7 The Fan

What to watch for: The Capitals have the fewest shots on goal of any team this postseason with 69 (Carolina has recorded 102) … Washington defenseman Jonas Siegenthaler will make his Stanley Cup Playoff debut in Game 4 in place of Christian Djoos, who averaged a mere 7:24 per game on the ice in the first three games … Hurricanes goalie Petr Mrazek only has a .897 save percentage so far in the series.
