McElhinney led the Lightning onto the ice for warmups.

McElhinney gave up four goals on 44 shots in the Lightning’s 4-3 overtime loss in Carolina last Sunday. It was a solid debut for the veteran netminder, who is an obvious must-stream this afternoon in Ottawa. Dating back to the start of last season, McElhinney is 9-5-2 in his last 16 road starts.

McElhinney leads the Lightning onto the ice for warmups.

McElhinney will face his former team right out of the gate. The veteran netminder went 20-11-2 with a 2.58 GAA and .912 SV% in 33 appearances with the Carolina Hurricanes last year. He signed on with Tampa Bay this summer and that will make him an excellent spot-start option on many occasions this season, but this is a tough matchup for his first start of the season.

McElhinney will start Game 4 vs. the Bruins.

McElhinney stopped 29 of 31 shots in the Hurricanes 2-1 loss to the Bruins in Game 3. McElhinney has been great for Carolina during the postseason, stopping 100 of the 106 shots (.943 SV%) that he has faced in three and a half games. McElhinney will need to be as good as he was in Game 3 to give Carolina a chance to stay alive because TuukkaRask has been outstanding in the opposite crease.

McElhinney will start Game 4 vs. the Islanders.

McElhinney made his first career playoff start in Game 3 and stopped 28 of the 30 shots that the Islanders fired his way to secure a 5-2 win. With Petr Mrazek still out with a lower-body injury, McElhinney will be given the opportunity to complete the sweep on home-ice. In 93:33 of playing time, the 35-year-old netminder has allowed just two goals on 47 shots (.957 SV%).

McElhinney will start Friday vs. the Jets.

McElhinney allowed four goals on 38 shots in the Hurricanes loss in Boston on Tuesday. The Hurricanes will break their goalie rotation as they will go back to McElhinney tonight vs. the Jets. The 35-year-old has gone 9-3-1 with a 2.01 GAA and .931 SV% on home-ice this season, but draws a fairly difficult assignment with the Jets in town—however, Winnipeg comes in without two of their top defensemen and as losers of nine of their last 14 (5-7-2).
