Lack was diagnosed with a strained neck and released from the hospital after being stretchered off the ice during Monday's tilt with Detroit. Though everyone will be relieved to hear that Lack escaped serious injury, it's highly unlikely that he'll be able to suit up for the second of back-to-back games with the Red Wings on Tuesday. Expect further updates to be given on Lack in the coming days.
Lack was stretchered off the ice at the conclusion of Monday's game against the Red Wings. The netminder was injured on the game-winning overtime goal in a collision with Andreas Athanasiou. The goal was reviewed and upheld, thus handing the Canes the loss. It's not clear yet what type of injury Lack is dealing with since no update was provided by the team after the game, but the good news is that he was seen giving a thumbs-up while being stretchered off the ice. At this point, it's safe to say he won't be between the pipes Tuesday against the same Red Wings squad, with his status going forward uncertain for now.
Lack will be between the posts for Monday night's contest against the Red Wings. Lack makes his third consecutive start and will be going for his fifth win in a row Monday. The 29-year-old has been one of the more pleasant surprises in the waning weeks of the season, as he's put together a 5-1-0 record with a .950 save percentage and 1.34 GAA over his last six starts. He'll look to keep up the good play against a Detroit squad that is averaging just 2.31 goals per game in March.
Lack will likely be in the crease for Monday's game against Detroit. Lack is in the midst of a hot streak with a .954 save percentage and 1.35 GAA in his last four games. Considering Detroit ranks near the bottom of the NHL in scoring with 2.38 goals per game, Lack's chances of continuing his tear are high.
Lack made 26 saves in a 3-1 win over New Jersey on Saturday night. Don't look now, but Lack has won four straight and that comes after his coach shredded him in public just a few short weeks ago. And he has allowed just five goals in those four games. Ride him when he's in the blue paint.
