McGinn opened the scoring in the first period on a feed from Martin Necas. In the third period, McGinn sent a puck back to Jaccob Slavin, who set up Dougie Hamilton for the game-tying goal. The 27-year-old McGinn finished the first-round series with four points, 15 shots on net, 24 hits and a plus-1 rating in six games.
McGinn scored twice on four shots and added three hits Sunday in a 4-3 double-overtime loss to Nashville in Game 4.
McGinn pulled the Hurricanes even at 2-2 with 1:55 left in the second period, hammering a one-timer from along the wall outside the left faceoff circle. Then he put Carolina on top just 13 seconds into the third period, stealing the puck in front and getting it through Juuse Saros while falling to the ice. It was just the second multi-point performance all season for McGinnn, who skated on Carolina's fourth line with Jordan Martinook and Steven Lorentz.
McGinn (upper body) posted four hits, two PIM and a shot on goal in 13:57 of ice time in Monday's 5-2 win over the Predators in Game 1.
McGinn didn't get involved in the offense much, but he made his presence felt after a 19-game absence. The winger had 13 points in 37 regular-season contests, but he's expected to remain in a bottom-six role during the playoffs.
McGinn (upper body) is in the Hurricanes' projected lineup for Monday's Game 1 against the Predators.
McGinn has healed up just in time for the postseason, though the bottom-six winger could have some rust to shake off considering his last game action came April 4. He finished the regular season with eight goals and five assists in 37 appearances.
Coach Rod Brind'Amour is hopeful McGinn (upper body) will be able to return sometime in April, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports.
McGinn's return obviously isn't imminent, but it sounds like he should at least be able to get a few games in before postseason play gets underway. Either way, the 27-year-old winger has only picked up eight goals and 13 points in 37 games this season, so most fantasy managers won't need to keep tabs on his availability.
McGinn (upper body) is expected to miss Carolina's next four games at a minimum, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports.
McGinn's absence will test the Hurricanes' depth up front, but it won't impact many fantasy lineups, as he's only picked up 13 points through 37 games this campaign.
McGinn (upper body) won't return to the lineup for Thursday's game versus Florida, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

McGinn (upper body) won't play Tuesday versus the Panthers, Cory Lavalette of the North State Journal reports.
The Hurricanes have yet to release a timetable for McGinn's return, but he'll miss at least one contest with the upper-body injury he suffered during Sunday's game versus the Stars. The 27-year-old winger has notched eight goals and 13 points in 37 games this season.
McGinn has been ruled out of the remainder of Sunday's game versus the Stars with an upper-body injury.
The severity of McGinn's upper-body issue has yet to be revealed, but more information regarding his status should surface prior to Tuesday's rematch with Dallas. The 27-year-old winger has picked up eight goals and 13 points in 36 games this season.
McGinn was held off the scoresheet in Saturday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Blue Jackets, giving him just two points in his last 14 games.
Was McGinn's February hot streak (seven goals and 11 points in 11 games) too good to last? Sadly, it's beginning to look that way. Keep in mind, one of the keys to McGinn's recent success was his elevated spot in the lineup -- at one point, he was playing on the top line with Sebastian Aho and Teuvo Teravainen. Currently, however, he's playing on the third line with Jordan Martinook and Warren Foegele, where the scoring opportunities just aren't as plentiful.
McGinn scored twice and dealt a pair of assists in Monday's 7-3 win over Columbus. He also added three shots with a plus-3 rating.
McGinn matched his career high with four points, his last such outing coming way back in 2016-17. The 26-year-old converted a cross-crease feed to tie the game at 3-3 early in the second period, then he extended Carolina's lead to 6-3 with a deflection in the final frame. He also assisted on goals by Sebastian Aho and Teuvo Teravainen. McGinn is enjoying an incredible month of February, racking up six goals and two assists over his last six games.
McGinn scored a goal on three shots, blocked two shots and went plus-2 in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Stars.
McGinn stretched his goal streak to four contests with his game-tying goal in the last minute of the second period. It's a remarkable run for the 27-year-old winger, who had all of seven goals and 17 points in 68 outings last year. Through 11 contests in 2020-21, McGinn has scored five times on 22 shots while adding 13 hits and a plus-1 rating. The Hurricanes' offense is deep this year, but McGinn probably can't keep up this pace much longer.
McGinn scored a goal on three shots Monday in a 3-2 loss to the Blue Jackets.
McGinn dove to swipe the puck into an open net on his backhand, pulling the Hurricanes even at 2-2 with 7:14 left in the second period. It was the third consecutive game with a goal for the 26-year-old, and his fourth tally in the last five contests. McGinn scored just seven goals in 68 games all of last season.
McGinn scored a goal on two shots in Sunday's 6-5 win over the Blue Jackets.
McGinn has heated up since a move to the top six -- he has goals in consecutive outings and three in his last four games. That accounts for all of his offense through nine appearances. The Ontario native has added 16 shots on net and 12 hits this year. He could be a solid budget option to fill out DFS rosters as long as he's alongside Sebastian Aho on the Hurricanes' top line.
McGinn scored a goal on two shots and went plus-2 in Thursday's 6-4 loss to the Blackhawks.
McGinn struck for his second goal of the year at 5:25 of the third period, tying the game at 4-4. The 27-year-old winger has just the two goals to go with 14 shots and 11 hits in eight contests this season. He's taken on a first-line role alongside Sebastian Aho, but head coach Rod Brind'Amour could shuffle McGinn out of that assignment at any point in time in favor of a more natural scorer like Teuvo Teravainen.
McGinn played his second straight game on the first line with Sebastian Aho and Andrei Svechnikov in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Stars.
Although he failed to crack the scoresheet for the fifth straight game, this is a great opportunity for McGinn to play with the Canes' top two players. Normally a third-line checker, McGinn was averaging roughly 13 minutes in ice time over his first three games, but played a whopping 20:26 with two shots on goal Saturday. With Teuvo Teravainen currently out with an undisclosed injury, McGinn makes for a nice pickup in daily formats, but be prepared to drop him quickly as soon as Teravainen returns.
McGinn scored a short-handed goal on his lone shot and delivered a pair of hits in Wednesday's 4-3 double-overtime loss to Boston in Game 1.
McGinn tied the game at 2-2 five minutes into the second period when he beat Tuuka Rask on a nifty forehand-to-backhand breakaway move. It broke an 11-game goal drought for the 26-year-old, who last scored on Feb. 21. McGinn had seven goals and 17 point sin 68 regular-season games and offers minimal fantasy upside.
McGinn saw ice time of just 10:48 in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Canadiens. He also failed to register a point for the third straight game, giving him just four points in 13 February contests.
It's been a tough season for the 26-year-old winger, who now has just 15 points through 64 games. McGinn looked to be turning a corner two seasons ago when he cracked the 30-point plateau for the first time in his career, but he's been slowly trending the other way since then. For fantasy purposes, he clearly does not boast much value outside of deep formats.
McGinn notched an assist and a team-high six hits in Saturday's 6-5 shootout win over the Golden Knights.
McGinn now has points in three of his last five outings. The 26-year-old winger is up to 13 points, 81 shots and 64 hits through 55 games this season. Outside of deeper formats, it's unlikely McGinn produces enough to make an impact in fantasy.
McGinn netted a goal on two shots in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Blues.
McGinn has two goals in the last three games, although his tally Tuesday cut the deficit to 6-2 in the third period. The 26-year-old now has 12 points, 79 shots on net and 58 hits through 53 games this season. He's a bottom-six player that isn't likely to help most fantasy owners, especially with a drop in physicality after back-to-back seasons of 137 hits with 25 or more points.
