The Carolina Hurricanes get more than a few days to lick their wounds after suffering back to back losses in California. Here is how they should spend that time.
Six Days. That’s the amount of time the Carolina Hurricanes have between the Ducks game and the Blue Jackets game. While many of us wish they could have spread out the last five game more to fit over that time, we do not have the ins and outs of the NHL scheduling wizardry, although some wonder if it’s just a headless chicken dancing on top of a keyboard.
Five games in eight days were not kind to the Carolina Hurricanes who went 2-3 in that time span including a pair of back to back losses in the dreaded western time zone. But now that they finally have the time off how will this team figure out a way to get back into the season and cut off the bleeding?
Naturally rest and more practice are the go to answers, but there is more to this. The Carolina Hurricanes need to ensure that they maximize the next six days to ensure that they are working on the right things and not allowing rust to settle in before they continue the season in Columbus against one of the teams they lost to in the past stretch
If this team wants to get back into the zone they kicked off the season with and get back to the top of the league they will need to dig deep over the next four days or so and get their heads back into the zone. Here are the the top three things they need to accomplish.
