Curtis McElhinney is in goal for Carolina Hurricanes for Game 3 versus the Boston Bruins, replacing Petr Mrazek as the home team's starting netminder for the pivotal contest.

Mrazek was the Hurricanes' starter down the regular-season stretch and during the first round of the playoffs. But he suffered an injury versus the New York Islanders in Round 2 and has struggled since returning, allowing 10 goals through two games against the Bruins.

McElhinney's appeared in one game in relief of Mrazek and started two others so far this postseason, posting a .947 save percentage over those outings.
