My Opinion: Earning wins on the road is always a big thing for any sports team. The home team is always expected to win and if a visiting team can go in there and steal a win, confidence is likely to grow in the locker room.
The Canes are playing some tough teams including Metropolitan Division opponent, the Islanders, then the Wild, followed by the still unbeaten Avalanche. It would be nice if they could earn a minimum of three to four points if that game.
Like Mark said, the Canes really need Jordan Staal, Patrick Dwyer and Jiri Tlusty to start producing. The team will get fatigued easier with all the travel, so depth scoring will become even more crucial.
