The Carolina Hurricanes put their season on the line against the Boston Bruins in Game 7 of their first-round NHL playoff series Sunday afternoon at PNC Arena after a 5-2 loss in Boston on Thursday.

Should the Hurricanes advance, the second-round series against the Pittsburgh Penguins or New York Rangers — who play a Game 7 of their own Sunday — could start as soon as Tuesday.

The News & Observer’s Chip Alexander and Luke DeCock are PNC Arena and will have live observations from the scene, along with photographer Robert Willett. Justin Pelletier is following along as well.

How to watch

Saturday’s game is available in North Carolina on Bally Sports South (Mike Maniscalco, Shane Willis, Abby Labar) and nationally on ESPN (Steve Levy, Ray Ferraro, Emily Kaplan).

Morning update

Steven Lorentz, who has yet to play in the series, will take warmups and could draw into the lineup, Hurricanes coach Rod Brind’Amour said Saturday. He’d most likely replace Derek Stepan, who came in for the injured Jordan Martinook in Game 4.

Steve Kozari and Chris Lee are the referees. Lee worked Game 4 in Boston. Jonny Murray, who was injured in Game 3 in Boston when a member of the TD Garden ice crew collided with him and finished out the game but hadn’t worked since, is one of the linesmen along with Ryan Gibbons.
