RALEIGH Patrick Kane Jersey , N.C. — The Carolina Hurricanes are taking their shots, but that’s the extent of the offense in many situations.Sorting out those shortcomings remains a priority as the team goes into Monday night’s game against the visiting Philadelphia Flyers at PNC Arena.The Hurricanes have lost four of their last five games. In those defeats, they’ve been shut out twice and scored one goal in the two others.Article continues below ...“There’s only so much we can do,” Carolina coach Rod Brind’Amour said of potential changes.The disappointment mounts because the Hurricanes have felt that in many cases they’ve done the right things — except putting the puck in the net.“It still looks pretty much the same. We’re getting our chances,” Brind’Amour said. “Five-on-five, the game is there every night. We’ve changed lines and we’ve done that. We’ve got to obviously get special teams rolling, to at least not hurt us. The 5-on-5 game, I think, is fine.“Switching lines up, we’ll make a couple little adjustments but I don’t know if that’s really the answer.”The Hurricanes could be pressing at times http://www.officialavalanche.com/authentic-adidas-alexander-kerfoot-jersey , something that might not make things better right away.“I think that has been weighing on the guys all year, really,” Brind’Amour said. “There’s no easy answer to it. You have to do it right.”Philadelphia isn’t without its problems. The Flyers have gone four straight games without winning in regulation, holding a 1-2-1 mark in those games.“It’s frustrating and disappointing, but we have to move on,” Philadelphia left winger James van Riemsdyk said.The Flyers dropped a 2-1 decision at Florida on Saturday, but it was notable on some fronts. Philadelphia won 69.4 percent of its face-offs for its second-best rate in that category this season. Center Sean Couturier was 18-for-24 on draws, coming a game after winning a career-high 19 face-offs at Tampa Bay.Goalie Carter Hart is coming off a 34-save outing for the Flyers. But Florida scored two late goals to pull out the victory.“I have to bear down,” Hart said. “We’ll regroup and get ready for Carolina.”Said Flyers defenseman Radko Gudas: “I thought we had the game under control.”For the Flyers, Monday night’s game marks the fourth stop in a stretch of five consecutive road games.The Hurricanes have been hurt by the absence of center Jordan Staal Erik Condra Jersey Womens , who has missed the last three games and eight of the last 10 games while dealing with injuries.Staal didn’t practice Sunday so it’s unlikely he’ll be back until January. With the situation facing the Hurricanes, they don’t have the luxury to wait for all the pieces to be together.“Where we are, every game is important,” Brind’Amour said. “If there are points out there, we’ve got to have them.”For Carolina, this is part of consecutive games against the Flyers. The teams meet Thursday night in Philadelphia, though the Flyers have a game in between with Tuesday night’s game at Nashville.The other two matchups between the Hurricanes and Flyers come in the final eight days of the regular season. OTTAWA — Mike Hoffman will be red-hot when he makes his return to Ottawa, where he spent the first eight years of his career.But his Florida Panthers aren’t entering Monday’s game.Hoffman, who had more than 22 goals in each of his last four seasons with the Senators, was dealt away in the summer after his spouse became involved in a ugly rift with the wife of captain Erik Karlsson. Hoffman was also singled out by Senators GM Pierre Dorion as one of the reasons team dressing room was “broken”.Article continues below ...After failing to pick up a point in his first two games with the Panthers Carl Soderberg Jersey , Hoffman is now riding a franchise record 15-game point scoring streak during with he has eight goals and 10 assists. Despite his efforts, the Panthers (7-7-3) continue to play below expectations and have lost their last two games.“We’re doing a lot of good things,” defenseman Keith Yandle told the Miami Herald after Saturday’s 4-2 loss to the New York Rangers, which saw the Panthers finish ahead 41-24 on the shots clock.“If you’re out-shooting teams, out-chancing teams, that’s the first step,” Hoffman told the Miami Herald. “The second is to clean up the (defensive zone) a little bit. Limit their chances and the quality of scoring chances we give up.”Hoffman had two assists when the Panthers beat the Senators 5-1 in Florida on Nov. 11. Before that game he made it clear he didn’t want to get into the remarks made by Dorion or the incident with the Karlssons, and that is not likely to change when he arrives in Ottawa.The Senators (9-8-3) have found a way to manufacture offense despite the loss of Hoffman and Karlsson. They are tied with the Toronto Maple Leafs for second in the goals scored category with 70. They have won their last two games, including Saturday’s 6-4 battle with the Pittsburgh Penguins.“We’ve been kind of at-.500, below-.500 Gabriel Landeskog Jersey Kids , at-.500, below-.500 for a while now, and to make that break through to get above, we can’t take it for granted now,” said Senators center Matt Duchene, who surpassed the 500-point mark in his career on Saturday with two goals and an assist. “We’ve got to keep pushing, Next game is a big one.”The Senators have had most of their success at home, where they are 7-3-2.“We’re playing well at home,” Duchene said. “We obviously want to be a little better on the road, but the more we win here http://www.officialavalanche.com/authentic-adidas-j.t.-compher-jersey , the more fans we’re going to get, and the better are atmosphere is going to be in here. Tonight was outstanding. Our fans really brought it tonight.”Rookies Brady Tkachuk, Colin White and now call up Drake Batherson are playing significant roles in a Senators rebuild that has gone better than expected. Second-year defenseman Thomas Chabot, who has 23 points in 20 games, has been very good in replacing Karlsson as the Senators back end leader.“The guys are playing above and beyond their years,” said Craig Anderson, who became the first goalie to top the 1000-minute mark on Saturday.
