The Carolina Hurricanes won their second game in a row last night, this time on the road against the Detroit Red Wings. Here’s what went right.
The Carolina Hurricanes are on the path to starting another winning streak after beating both the Florida Panthers and the Detroit Red Wings in back-to-back games.
Last night, the Hurricanes walked out of Little Caesars Arena with two more points in the standings, and have elevated themselves to 6th overall in the league. The Carolina Hurricanes have managed to find their game after losing 4 in a row, and have been able to win 6 of their last 7 games.
The Detroit Red Wings, on the other hand, are firmly planted at the very bottom of the league table with 17 points – two points behind the Los Angeles Kings.
Last night’s game was the Hurricanes’ to lose from start to finish, and James Reimer and Co. managed to keep the Red Wings off the scoresheet entirely, as Reimer earned his first shutout as a Carolina Hurricane.
Many, many things went right, but there were a few that stuck out more than others: Reimer stood tall all game, the Canes managed to play a tight game defensively, and the Canes actually managed to play a full 60 minutes, for the first time in what seems like ages.
