Carolina Hurricanes get a major injury update ahead of Game 2

The Carolina Hurricanes have made it into the second round of the playoffs against the New York Rangers without their starting goaltender Frederik Andersen. Andersen has been out since the latter part of the regular season when he suffered a lower body injury.

According to Abby Labar, host and reporter for the Canes, Andersen was spotted working with Carolina's goaltending coach, Paul Schonfelder ahead of what was called a limited practice for the team yesterday. This ahead of game 2 against the Rangers tonight at 8pm.

Andersen hasn't seen any game action in over a month, after going down in the final moments of a Canes game with a lower body injury on April 16th. While this is a positive sign to be sure, don't expect Carolina to rush Andersen back before he's ready.

In his first year in Carolina, the 32-year-old went 35-14-3 in 52 games played to go along with 4 shutouts, a 2.17 goals against average and a .922 save percentage.

Hopefully he's back in action for the Canes shortly.
