After suffering a gut wrenching loss to the New Jersey Devils, the Carolina Hurricanes look to bounce back on the road in the city of brotherly love.

On this fifth of November, we gather at the Wells Fargo Center, either in person or watching on TV, to see a Metropolitan division matchup. Both the Carolina Hurricanes and the Philadelphia Flyers are coming into this game off tough losses to the New Jersey Devils and the Toronto Maple Leafs respectively. With this the first of four meetings this season, a lot of questions remain for both teams.

The Philadelphia Flyers are an interesting team to say the least at the moment. You could say for Halloween the Flyers dressed up as Dr. Jekyll and Gritty. In the last five games, the Flyers are 2-3-0, during which they scored three or more goals four times while giving up three or more goals in all five games.

Remember, remember the fifth of November. The Flyers and Canes face off. I see of no reason why this Hurricanes season should ever be forgot.

The Carolina Hurricanes are coming off of a four game home stand where they saw a three game win streak snapped by the New Jersey Devils to close it out.

Remember, remember the fifth of November. The Flyers and Canes face off. I see of no reason why this Hurricanes season should ever be forgot. Both the Hurricanes and the Flyers look to regain their mojo, here’s what the Canes need to do to ensure a victory in the city of brotherly love.
