With the Carolina Hurricanes ready to turn the page to November, we dissect the upcoming schedule, identify trending players, and make a few predictions.
For the Carolina Hurricanes, October went about as well as you could reasonably ask. They opened up with a franchise record setting five-game winning streak before falling to Columbus. They embarked on their “Canes After Dark” road trip early on, ultimately dropping two of the three games.
Upon returning home, the Hurricanes bounced back. They closed the month with two excellent wins against Chicago and Calgary that could be best described as necessities. The team now sits 2nd in the Metropolitan division with an 8-3-1 record. They also matched their franchise best point total for October with 17 in the standings.
On top of the team’s good standing amongst the rest of the league, we got to witness Dougie Hamilton play like a man possessed, Erik Haula make a lasting first impression, and Andrei Svechnikov score the NHL’s first “Michigan” goal.
With those good vibes in mind, let’s see what lies on the horizon for the Carolina Hurricanes.
