Lightning's Curtis McElhinney: Lands two-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McElhinney signed a two-year, $2.6 million contract with Tampa Bay on Monday, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports.

McElhinney's move to Tampa likely means Louis Domingue is on the market, as the club isn't going to carry three netminders or pay one of them over $1 million to sit in the minors. The 35-year-old McElhinney joins the club after registering a career-high 20 wins in 2018-19 and should give the Bolts plenty of coverage to rest starter Andrei Vasilevskiy down the stretch in the hopes of avoiding a similar postseason fate.

Hurricanes' Curtis McElhinney: Won't re-sign with Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

GM Don Waddell revealed Saturday that McElhinney will head elsewhere this offseason, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports.

McElhinney split time with Petr Mrazek down the stretch in the regular season before ceding the first-round series to Mrazek. He wound up making five appearances in the postseason, but it appears the netminder has his heart set on securing a gig elsewhere.

Hurricanes' Curtis McElhinney: Can't rescue Canes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McElhinney gave up three goals on 22 shots in Thursday's 4-0 series-ending Game 4 loss to Boston.

McElhinney was perfect in the first 20 minutes but then saw two pucks beat him in the second period, both coming on Bruins power plays. The visitors would add two more goals in the final frame, one coming with Carolina's net empty. The veteran goalie's contract will expire on July 1, and it remains to be seen where the 35-year-old will play in 2019-20. Rest assured, McElhinney's performance in these playoffs has given teams more than enough reason to entertain signing him this offseason.

Hurricanes' Curtis McElhinney: Gets starting nod for must-win game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McElhinney will guard the cage in Thursday's Game 4 against the Bruins in Carolina, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports.

McElhinney was rock solid in Tuesday's Game 3, turning aside 29 of 31 shots, but he ultimately suffered his first loss of the playoffs due to insufficient goal support from his teammates. The journeyman netminder will look to stay sharp and help his team stave off elimination by picking up his third home victory of this postseason Thursday.

Hurricanes' Curtis McElhinney: Solid outing not enough
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McElhinney made 29 saves in a 2-1 loss to Boston on Tuesday in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Chris Wagner and Brad Marchand were the only Bruins to light the lamp Tuesday. After watching his team concede 11 goals in Games 1 and 2, McElhinney turned in an admirable performance but still came away on the losing end of things, and the Hurricanes now trail 3-0 in the series. We'd expect to see the veteran return to the crease for Game 4, but no official announcement has been made as of yet.

Hurricanes' Curtis McElhinney: Starting Game 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McElhinney will tend the home goal for Tuesday's Game 3 against the Bruins, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

After the team gave up a total of 11 goals in their two-game swing in Boston, head coach Rod Brind'Amour elected to bench his starting goaltender Petr Mrazek in favor for McElhinney. He was stellar when filling in for the injured Mrazek, going 3-0-0 along with a 1.56 GAA and .947 save percentage in three games. The start gives the 35-year-old an opportunity to put pressure on Brind'Amour to ride the hot hand if he performs well Tuesday.

Hurricanes' Curtis McElhinney: Secures series with win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McElhinney stopped 26 of 28 shots in Friday's 5-2 win over the Islanders in Game 4.

With Petr Mrazek (lower body) out, McElhinney delivered a third straight victory to help the Hurricanes sweep the Islanders. McElhinney allowed four goals over two-and-a-half games after Mrazek's injury. The Hurricanes will have some time to wait for the winner of the Bruins/Blue Jackets series, and if Mrazek is healthy, he will likely retake the starting job.

Hurricanes' Curtis McElhinney: Gets starting nod for Game 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McElhinney will patrol the crease in Friday's Game 4 against the Islanders, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

McElhinney was rock solid during his first career postseason start in Game 3, turning aside 28 of 30 shots en route to a 5-2 victory. The 35-year-old journeyman will look to stay dialed in and help his team advance to the Eastern Conference finals by picking up a second straight home win and completing the sweep of the Islanders on Friday.

Hurricanes' Curtis McElhinney: Stands tall in Game 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McElhinney turned aside 28 of 30 shots during Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Islanders in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference semifinals.

When the puck dropped, the 35-year-old became the oldest goalie in NHL history to start his first playoff game, but he certainly didn't play like it. After stopping all 17 shots he faced in relief of Petr Mrazek (lower body) on Sunday, McElhinney is sporting a lot of confidence, and with the 'Canes up 3-0 in the series, they may elect to give him the nod again Friday for Game 4 and let Mrazek continue to convalesce.

Hurricanes' Curtis McElhinney: In goal Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McElhinney will get the starting nod at home for Game 3 against the Islanders on Wednesday, Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal reports.

McElhinney was perfect in relief of Petr Mrazek (lower body) in Game 2, stopping all 17 shots he faced. The veteran and career backup set new bests in games played (33) and wins (20) this season and will now be tasked with keeping the Canes' Stanley Cup dreams alive. Once Mrazek is given the all-clear, McElhinney figures to find himself back on the bench.

Hurricanes' Curtis McElhinney: Gets Game 2 win in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McElhinney stopped all 17 shots he faced in relief of Petr Mrazek (lower body) during Sunday's 2-1 win over the Islanders in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference second-round series.

Mrazek exited the game early in the second period with the 'Canes down 1-0, but McElhinney -- in only his third ever playoff appearance during a vagabond NHL career that stretches back over 11 seasons and seven teams -- held down the fort and got rewarded with the win when Carolina rallied in the third. Mrazek will get an extra day to recover, as Game 3 isn't until Wednesday, but if he remains out the Hurricanes could be in trouble despite a 2-0 series lead if they have to lean too heavily on McElhinney.

Hurricanes' Curtis McElhinney: Marks 20th win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McElhinney stopped 28 of 31 shots in Saturday's win over the Flyers.

McElhinney had an excellent regular season and he's a large part of why the Hurricanes made the postseason. The veteran netminder will finish the campaign with a .912 save percentage, 2.58 GAA and a 20-11-2 record. Petr Mrazek is expected to start in the blue paint for the first-round series versus the Capitals.

Hurricanes' Curtis McElhinney: Between pipes Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McElhinney will get the starting nod for Saturday's road tilt at Philadelphia, Sara Civian of The Athletic reports.

McElhinney has split time with Petr Mrazek down the stretch, but Mrazek's strong performances in critical contests could give him the edge as the Game 1 starter for the Canes. McElhinney will at least get an opportunity to state his case for postseason time in the crease Saturday, taking on a Flyers club that has notched 2.90 goals per game on home ice.

Hurricanes' Curtis McElhinney: Edged out in critical game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McElhinney permitted three goals on 28 shots in Sunday's 3-1 road loss to the Penguins.

Pittsburgh put the puck past McElhinney three times at even strength, and the Carolina offense didn't show up until Jaccob Slavin's blast from the point with 7:48 remaining in the contest. The Hurricanes dropped to the second wild-card playoff spot in the Eastern Conference with the loss.

Hurricanes' Curtis McElhinney: Draws start in Pittsburgh
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McElhinney will protect the away net Sunday against the Penguins, Sara Civian of The Athletic reports.

He last faced Pittsburgh in early February, turning in a 23-save shutout in a 4-0 victory. The 35-year-old owns a respectable 2.55 GAA and .913 save percentage along with a 19-10-2 record this season. He's been fairly inconsistent in March and Pittsburgh will provide a tough matchup.

Hurricanes' Curtis McElhinney: Falters in critical game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McElhinney surrendered three goals on 20 shots during Thursday's 3-2 home loss to the Capitals.

McElhinney stood tall through two periods but surrendered two costly goals in the third period as the Hurricanes lost a critical opportunity to gain ground in the Eastern Conference playoff race. The 35-year-old netminder falls to a 2.55 GAA and .913 save percentage behind a 19-10-2 record while remaining locked in a fairly even timeshare with Petr Mrazek.

Hurricanes' Curtis McElhinney: Gets starting nod versus Caps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McElhinney will draw the start against the visiting Capitals on Thursday.

McElhinney will be vying for his 20th win in his 31st appearance of the season. One of the biggest breakout performers among goalies this season, C-Mac is coming off a 2-1 win over the Habs that saw him push aside 28 of 29 shots in the process. He'll now take aim at a Capitals squad with the best record (45-24-8) in the shared Metropolitan Division.

Hurricanes' Curtis McElhinney: Defeats Canadiens at home
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McElhinney stopped 28 of 29 shots in Sunday's 2-1 overtime win over Montreal.

It was a good bounce-back performance for McElhinney, coming off giving up five goals on 31 shots in his last start. The win over Montreal provides the Hurricanes a bit of breathing room in the standings, and for McElhinney, the veteran netminder now owns a 19-9-2 record in 30 appearances this season.

Hurricanes' Curtis McElhinney: Guarding crease Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McElhinney will defend the net against Montreal on Sunday, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports.

McElhinney has allowed 19 goals over his last four games, including an eight-goal shelling from Winnipeg on March 8. The 35-year-old owns a .913 save percentage and 2.59 GAA with an 18-9-2 record on the season. His lone start against Montreal this season was a terrific one as he stopped 48-of-49 shots in a 2-1 win back in November.

Hurricanes' Curtis McElhinney: Shocked by Lightning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McElhinney made 26 saves in a 6-3 loss to the Lightning on Thursday night. He allowed five goals.

McElhinney has been outstanding this season, but the epic Lightning offence was simply too much for him and the Canes. Mind you, he's been a bit off of late. Three of this last four games have been less than great -- McElhinney has allowed 17 goals in those three and his save percentage has ranged from .895 to .724. Think twice about his next opponent. If they're as good as Tampa Bay, Winnipeg or Boston, McElhinney is better benched.
