Carolina looks for big things from rookies Necas, Svechnikov

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) The Carolina Hurricanes were working on their power play during practice when first-year coach Rod Brind'Amour pulled first-round draft pick Andrei Svechnikov aside for some quick one-on-one instruction.

"Andrei," the coach said, "be a shooter."

The Hurricanes likely will need plenty of shots - and goals - from Svechnikov and fellow first-round draft pick Martin Necas if they're to finally snap the NHL's longest active playoff drought.
