Raleigh - April 28, 2019 - Andrei Svechnikov remains a game-time decision for the Carolina Hurricanes against the New York Islanders in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Second Round at Barclays Center on Sunday (3 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, SN, TVAS).

The 19-year-old rookie forward skated on his own Saturday at Barclays Center. The Hurricanes did not practice following their 1-0 overtime victory in Game 1 of the best-of-7 series on Friday.

Svechnikov is getting closer to returning, Carolina coach Rod Brind'Amour said.

"He's passed everything, and this is where practice would have been great," Brind'Amour said. "We haven't had practice time for him to get real comfortable and we are not going to put him in if he is not comfortable."

With an afternoon game Sunday, there will be no morning skate. Carolina may practice on Monday or Tuesday; Game 3 is at PNC Arena on Wednesday.

Svechnikov has missed the past five games; the Hurricanes have won four of those games.

He missed the final four games of Carolina's seven-game, first-round victory against the defending Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals after sustaining a concussion during a fight with Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin in Game 3.

The No. 2 pick in the 2018 NHL Draft, Svechnikov has three points (two goals, one assist) in three playoff games and had 37 points (20 goals, 17 assists) in 82 regular-season games.

Forward Jordan Martinook, who didn't play after regulation in the Hurricanes' 4-3 double-overtime win in Game 7 against the Capitals, missed Game 1 against the Islanders; he sat out Game 5 against Washington with a lower-body injury; he played less than 15 minutes each in Game 6 and Game 7. Martinook finished the first round with two assists in six games.

Forward Micheal Ferland has missed the past five games because of an upper-body injury.
