Battling for first, Hurricanes begin two-game set vs. Panthers

The Carolina Hurricanes and the host Florida Panthers are set to meet on Thursday night in Sunrise, Fla., in a battle for first place in the Central Division.

"All these games now, they mean a lot," said Hurricanes goalie Alex Nedeljkovic, who made 26 saves on Tuesday in a 4-1 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Carolina (30-10-5, 65 points) has two games in hand on the Panthers, making Thursday night even more consequential for Florida (30-12-5, 65).
