News: Khudobin stopped 30 of the 31 shots he faced in Sunday's loss to the Rangers.
Impact: Khudobin was great Sunday, but got no offensive support in a 1-0 loss. The 28-year-old is still searching for his first win this season, posting an 0-8-2 record, to go with a .900 save percentage and 2.91 GAA. Considering the Hurricanes sit at the bottom of the Eastern Conference with just 22 points, it's hard to see Khudobin piling up the wins anytime soon. The backup to Cam Ward won't provide much fantasy value unless the Hurricanes get their season back on track.

News: Khudobin will start against the Rangers on Sunday, Chantel McCabe of the Hurricanes' official site reports.
