Hurricanes' Nino Niederreiter: Tallies lone goal Sunday

Niederreiter scored a goal on two shots and added four hits in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Rangers in Game 3. Niederreiter's second-period tally was a bit of a lucky shot to sneak through Igor Shesterkin -- and the only one of 44 Hurricanes shots to find twine. This ended a five-game point drought for Niederreiter, who has four goals and an assist through 10 playoff outings. The third-line winger has added 17 shots on net, 29 hits, 10 PIM and an even plus-minus rating. There's little reason to expect a significant uptick in his scoring without a corresponding move up the lineup.

Hurricanes' Nino Niederreiter: Dishes pair of helpers

Niederreiter notched two assists, five shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Ducks. Niederreiter helped out on the first two goals of Jordan Staal's hat trick. In the last 10 games, Niederreiter has contributed five goals and three assists from a middle-six role. The Swiss winger is up to 39 points, 130 shots, a plus-23 rating and 106 hits through 66 contests this season. If he can get on the scoresheet once more, he'll secure the fourth 40-point campaign of his career.

Hurricanes' Nino Niederreiter: Two points in losing effort

Niederreiter scored a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Sabres. After helping set up Jesper Fast for the game's opening goal late in the first period, Niederreiter notched his own tally early in the third to tie the game at 2-2, but it was all the offense Carolina could muster. The 29-year-old is up to 22 goals -- just three shy of his career high -- and 37 points through 63 games on the season.

Hurricanes' Nino Niederreiter: Eligible to return

Niederreiter has served his one-match suspension and will be available versus the Lightning on Tuesday. Niederreiter remains stuck in a five-game pointless streak during which he has registered just seven shots. With the addition of Max Domi (foot) at the deadline, the 29-year-old Niederreiter could find himself outside of the top-six, though a third-line role with Domi could be an option as well.
