After shutout loss, Hurricanes get another shot at Lightning

Carolina Hurricanes captain Jordan Staal believes it's good that his team has little time to dwell on its first shutout loss of the season, which came on Wednesday at Tampa Bay.

The Hurricanes dropped a 3-0 decision to the defending Stanley Cup champions as Andrei Vasilevskiy, boosted by an early 2-0 lead, made 25 saves to record his 22nd career shutout.

The two teams will face off again Thursday in Tampa Bay, the fourth game in six days between the Central Division rivals and the fifth meeting of the young season. Carolina blanked the Lightning in each of the first two matchups, but Tampa Bay won the past two, starting with a 4-2 victory in Raleigh, N.C., on Monday night.
