Do the Hurricanes play better in front of Justin Peters?

Something that I have learned from years of watching hockey and doing statistical analysis is that tryign to predict goaltending is losing a battle.

Hurricanes' third-string goalie Peters building confidence

RALEIGH, N.C. -- It seems like the Carolina Hurricanes (6-7-3) have rarely played with a lead this season.
