Coach Rod Brind’Amour said: “he was in (the) full practice today with no limitations, so that’s a positive. I’m not going to make any decisions today, but getting more guys back is nice.”

The Hurricanes will play the Boston Bruins or the Columbus Blue Jackets in the conference final. The Bruins lead their second-round series 3-2. Game 6 is at Nationwide Arena on Monday (7 p.m. ET).
