Hurricanes look to keep rolling, face Senators

Carolina (31-25-5) at Ottawa (22-27-9), 7:30 p.m. EST

OTTAWA (Ticker) -- The Carolina Hurricanes will try to match a

season high with their fourth straight win when they visit the

struggling Ottawa Senators on Tuesday.

Carolina has won its last three games by a combined score of

15-5, which includes Sunday's 5-2 triumph over Colorado.

Matt Cullen recorded his first career hat trick and Chad LaRose

and Ray Whitney each had two assists in the win. The Hurricanes

outshot the Avalanche, 39-19.

Opening an eight-game homestand, Ottawa is going in the opposite

direction after enjoying a winning streak of its own.

All-Star Dany Heatley netted a pair of goals as the Senators

dropped their third straight decision, a 5-3 setback to the

Montreal Canadiens on Saturday. The losing skid comes on the

heels of a season-high five-game winning streak.

Carolina also won four straight games from December 31-January


The teams split the first two meetings earlier this season.
