Home-loving Hurricanes seek to close series on Rangers' ice

Their most dominating performance of the postseason put the Carolina Hurricanes on the brink of getting through the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs and pushed the New York Rangers into yet another must-win game.

That came in a 3-1 win on Thursday in Raleigh, N.C. Now, the Hurricanes are hoping to secure their elusive first road win of the postseason while the Rangers are hoping their home-ice magic appears yet again when the shifts to New York for Game 6.

The Hurricanes have a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series.
