Carolina Notes

With a four-point night on Nov. 1 in Atlanta, Hurricanes captain Rod Brind’Amour pulled within a single point of reaching the 1,000-point mark for his NHL career. Brind’Amour closed in on that milestone while reaching another, becoming the 66th player to skate in 1,200 NHL games during Carolina’s 5-2 victory against the Thrashers. Acquired by Carolina on Jan. 23, 2000, Brind’Amour played his 400th game with the Hurricanes on Oct. 7 in Washington and currently ranks 12th among active players and 71st in NHL history in points with 999. The 2006 Selke Trophy winner reached the 600-assist mark on Oct. 13 in Atlanta, and is 14 goals shy of 400 in his career.

Last season the teams split their four-game regular-season series with each team winning once and losing once on home ice, and Ottawa outscoring Carolina 14-10 in the four games. Now-Senators goaltender Martin Gerber started all four games for Carolina last season, posting a 2-2-0 record, a 3.29 goals-against average and a .914 save percentage. Now-Red Wings netminder Dominik Hasek posted a 2-2-0 record, a 2.52 goals-against average and a .910 save percentage while playing every minute for Ottawa against Carolina last season. Dany Heatley led all scorers with five points (1g, 4a) in the four-game set, while Eric Staal (2g, 2a) and Justin Williams (1g, 3a) paced the Hurricanes. Carolina posts a 31-21-8 all-time record against the Senators with a 17-8-4 home record and a 14-13-4 record in the Ottawa region.
