RALEIGH, N.C. -- Good morning from the RBC Center, where the Bruins will play the Hurricanes at 7:30 p.m. in Game 3 of the second round. The series is tied, 1-1. The Hurricanes will skate at 10:30 a.m. The Bruins will go on the ice at 11:30 a.m., and media availability will follow after they come off.

Some tidbits from the game notes:

* The Bruins remain perfect on the penalty kill (10 for 10). They have the best PK in the playoffs. Carolina was perfect on the PK at home (9 for 9) in the first round against New Jersey.

* The Bruins enter tonight in an 0-for-14 slump on the power play. They have yet to score a PPG on the road.

* Eric Furlatt and Bill McCreary will be the referees. Shane Heyer and Brian Murphy will be the linesmen.
