TREVOR HAGAN / WINNIPEG FREE PRESS archives Eric Staal (right) leads Carolina with 17 goals.

Carolina has been respectable against the Northeast and Atlantic Division but its mark against its Southeast Division rivals this season, 4-12-0, has been more than hurtful.

LW Jeff Skinner had to leave Tuesday's game with a suspected concussion after being hit cleanly by Ottawa's Jared Cowan. Skinner has 12 goals and 22 points this season in 37 games.

Goalie Cam Ward has been sidelined for 21 games because of knee injury.

Carolina has a power-play goal in four straight games, five for 12 in the process. Captain Eric Staal had Tuesday's in Ottawa, his 17th goal of the season.
